This is the heading to an article published April 9th in one of the best-informed automobile magazines pub- '
lished. We do not know what's in Mr. Ford's mind any more than you do, but we do believe that RUMOR of
marked changes in the Ford car is entirely supposition. To change the Model T Ford car would be —as we see
it—like killing- the goose that lays the golden egg. We believe that you can buy the Improved Ford of today, and
get the BEST dollar's value in automotive power that money can buy. The large number of Ford cars sold shows
that there is the most value to be had in a Ford at the folowing prices (delivered in Williamston):
ROADSTER $420.00 TUDOR SEDAN ! 565.00
TOURING CAR 441.00 FORDOR SEDAN 616.00
