Wills Sainte Claire, Willys Knight, and Stutz auto ads

This entry is part 3 of 17 in the series Automobile Ads Scrapbook

The Willys Knight ads appear to be from the 1920s, the model 70 was produced in 1927. I am not sure when the Whippet was produced. There are several pages of ads for Willys Knight sedans and autos. The Wills Sainte Claire ad features its Canadian Goose logo and this page contains 2 scanned ads.
