THE more you see of the new Ford, the more yoa
realize that it brings you everything you want or
need in a motor car. • • . And at an unusually
low price.
Its substantial beauty of line and color is ap
parent at a glance. Long, continuous service em
phasizes the value of its simplicity of design and the
high quality that has been built into every part*
The new Ford accelerates quickly and it will
do 55 to 65 miles an hour. It is an easy-riding car
because of its specially designed springs and four
Houdaille double-acting hydraulic shock absorb
ers. It has fully enclosed four-wheel brakes and
the added safety of a Triplex shatter-proof glass
windshield. Operation and up-keep costs are low
and it has the stamina and reliability that mean
thousands of miles of uninterrupted service.
See the nearest dealer and have him give you
a demonstration ride in the new Ford. Check up
every point that goes to make a good automobile
and you will know it is a value far above the price.
