Washington Blvd. IgsMasMsilMsBtMsaSaMsgaaslMslSaailaillI Phenomenal Pulling Power Proved In Hill - Climbing Hill - climbing: is the test of all tests for pulling power. Because of that, and because of what it has done, wc emphasize the high - gear hill - climbing ability of the Hup - mobile Perfected Four. Iw nas made good on the hardest hills in the country. Its latest achievement was the climb of Fort George Hill, New York, on high - gear under the official observance and sanction of the American Automobile Association. It reached the top at a speed of 15 miles per hour. It was stock and standard in every detail. Indeed, it was the United America Hupmobile now making its 20,000 - mile tour to the capitals of all the states, with an excess load of baggage, motion picture equipment, etc. Yet this test was oaly confirmation of what the car has done elsewhere. On Corey Hill, in Boston, where no multi - cylinder car will compete with it; Tam - O' - Shanter, in Philadelphia; Hospital Hill, in Kansas City; Coon Hollow Hill, in Seattle; (Lad so on. This remarkable hill - cfimbing ability evidences phenomenal pulling power. With four cylinders, Hupmobile engineers have pchieved more than you get in many can with more cylinders. This motor has the power capacity of a racing motor. But, instead of UMng this power for excessive speed, ltis translated into pulling power. That is why the Hupmobile performs in the way ususOly associated with 80 liorsepower. We should like to demonstrate the Hupmobile for you, particularly now, while the Show is on, and you have the chance of seeing how they all perform.
