Excerpt:
“In these days of higher speeds and greater loads, highway transportation demands engines that are powerful, flexible and economical. Low fares mean that costs per mile must be kept within strict limits if operators are to earn a profit.
That Hercules Engines, both gasoline and Diesel, meet these requirements, is emphasized by the fact that more than a quarter of all the buses purchased by transit companies last year were powered by Hercules. Hercules equipped more transit type coaches in 1934 than any other manufacturer.”

This is a 85 yr. old original vintage ad removed from a 1935 publication and is not a reproduction of any kind.
