You can drive it 50 miles an hour the day yon bay it
The Ford V-8 is ready for normal driving
when yon bay it. There is no tedioos period
of breaking-in for 500 of 1000 miles. Yon
can drive it up to 50 miles an hoar the first
day. And after the first hundred miles ypn
*^cairdrive it as fast as you desire.
That means greater motoring enjoyment tor
every motorist. It is especially important to
motorists who are thinking about a new car
for a vacation trip—to physicians, salesmen
and oil those who use a car for basiness. In-
stead of dn:^ging' along at slow speeda for
days, yon can make good time from the start.
The reason for this is as important as tho
resolt. The Ford V-8 needs no breaking-in
becaose of unosoal accoraey in the manufac
ture of moving parts and the smoothness of
heat^surfsoes. Qeannees are correct when
yon buy the car. It is not necessary to depend
on a long wearing-in'period to eliminate tij^ti-
ness and insure smooth mmting. Lcmger life, •
greater economy and better pc^rmance are
bound to resolt from eneb precision methods.
Tl^ Fortl V-8 gives you fine-car construction, ■,
along with fine-car performance, oomfioct,'
safety and beauty.
