Text from a 1906 ad.
50 Actual Horse Power.
A combination of imported steels and "hand" workmanship with American simplicity of design and interchangeability, makes the 1906 Welch a car equalled by none.

Buy a car whose vital points have been in use practically unchanged for several years, and that is being copied much more extensively by prominent makers than any othtr car in existence.

Buy one that is guaranteed to give better service the second season than the first, and that will not be a back number in six months through the caprice of the maker, a car that will carry you on the DIRECT drive from four to fifty miles, or better, per hour, and take ninety-five per cent, of all hills on the high gear. KNOW what you are buying. Ask for our treatise on Horse Power and our latest catalog.
