Safety and Beauty in Manchuria Governor’s Car

AN American limousine has just been delivered to His Excellency Tsan Tso-Lin, governor general of Manchuria. It combines luxurious upholstery and beauty of design with armored protection.

A lining of chrome nickel steel was built inside the body. Shutters of the same material, which are rolled out of sight in the roof of the car, can be lowered to cover the windows. Portholes in the sides and back of the car make it possible to fire from within.
