But price alone is not responsible for the wide preference for Stewarts. Rather it is the way they continue the economy of their first cost through years of steady, reliable service. When, side by side with far costlier trucks, they outwork them, put in more hours at less cost, it is natural that they win the replacement orders.

Ten Year Old Stewarts

[ocr errors]

Many of the first Stewarts built ten years ago are today rendering satisfactory service. Hundreds of fleet owners who first bought one Stewart have repeated again and again. Stewarts are made in five capacities— 1 to 4 ton, backed by 11 years of successful truck manufacture and financial stability.

Owners Praise Its Economy Take particular note of the Stewart 1-ton truck illustrated above. It gives in service 14 to 17 miles on a gallon of gasoline-10,000 to 12,000 miles on a set of tires-500 to 700 miles on a gallon of oil. Compare this Stewart with any 1-ton truck on the American market, regardless of price, then test its wonderful performance, note its remarkable power, quietness, freedom from vibration and easy riding qualities. Note the comfortable driver's seat with deep cushions and fine steering wheel position. Five bearing crank shaft; Multiple disc clutch; Electric starting and lighting; Truck type bevel gear axle. Body and equipment complete, it costs less than the chassis alone of many trucks it will out-perform and out-last.
