If your Ford car is out of tune, there is un
doubtedly a good reason for it. And the best way
to find that reason and have il remedied, is to drive
to our authorized Service station where one of our
mechanics, who knows the Ford way to adjust and
repair Ford cars, can tune it up in a shop that is
properly equipped to give Ford service. Then too,
we use only Genuine Ford-made parts. They
weir from thirty-five to one hundred per cent longer
than the counterfeit parts. -
We are a part of the gigantic Ford service or
ganization; we have more than a passing interest in
your car. Prompt service is given on all work.
Drive in and see for yourself, there is too much
money invested in your Ford car to miss connection
with the authorized Ford dealers.
