Continental Twin Six V12 1915

Does anyone here have the Continental Engines book, and, if so, does it say anything about the Twin Six V12 apparently intended to be offered to the trade in 1915-16???

Both the Davis car and the Pathfinder published ads promising the Cont'l V12 would be available in their cars for the 1916 model year; Std Cat states Davis promised a V12 but never "marketed one", while Pathfinder did market a V12 but used the Weidley...

Both ads and trade journal entries stated specs were to be nade available "later", but one account did say it would be a 3x4 OHV, commenting that was unusual for Cont'l with their L-heads...

I thought I'd seen a pic of it but when I went back all I could find was a small illus on the pathfinder ads..

My apologies for not putting this in the Cont'l engines forum; there's judt so much more exposure here for an obscure question...

Any comments/illumination appreciated!!
