To Those Who Judge
Quality by Price
The quality of Ford cars cannot be judged bv the prices at which
they are sold because Ford prices are made possible by condi
tions that are absolutely unique in the automotive industry.
From mine to market the Ford car is the work of a single or
ganization. The Company owns and operates the mines and
* 1 forests that furnish the raw materials for its products. This
— material is carried over Ford transportation routes, fabricated
in Ford mills, manufactured in Ford plants -and the finished
product Is sold to the public through Ford dealers.
The following statement, previously made in an advertising
message, is repeated because of its significance to the public:
\ . V/
"If any other manufacturer endeavored to pritdtue a
car similar to the Ford, according to the hiffh Hand
arils of quality In material and workmanship used by
the Ford Motor Company and with the same tried and
proved deelgn, it would he inipoasible to offer it at any
thing like Ford prices. And it ta well to n*te that even
with lete costly deaign they have not met Ford prices."
