THE~UN IVER'S A.lLIC A RJ
The Ford Model T One Ton Truck is a Little Over Three Years Old,
and we have yet ta hear of the first trouble it has given. That's because of the worm drive.
Not a bit of the power of the motor is lost through the worm drive. It simply cannot
be. Up to the introduction of the Ford Motor Truck, you could only get the worm
drive in the highest priced motor trucks. It is too expensive an equipment for ordi
nary priced trucks. That's one of the reasons why we put it on the Ford Truck.
Quality in materials, scientific application of transmission of power, dependability in service and economy in operation are
cardinal virtues in Ford production. These are what made the Ford "The Universal Car," and these are the qualities that will
make the Ford One Ton Truck "The Universal Motor Truck." In town, in the city, in village and farm, the Ford Motor Truck is
the essential necessity "because it solves the problem of economical transportation. Come in and let us give you a demonstra
tion. Let us have a chance to point out the superior merits of the Ford Motor Truck. The Ford Motor Truck sells at $550.00
without the body. Better place your order at once in order to Insure delivery before fall. Ask any of the following Ford Truck
nw**T in this section as to their superior qualities: S. F. Logan, F. F. Rainsford, C A. Wells, W. H. Jackson, B. T. Lanham, Milton Parker, B. B. Jones,
