TH JE" UN I VERS A L CAR
The Fofd Model T one-ton truck is proving a splendid
time and money-saver on the farm
It is very flexible in control, strong and dependable^ in service. It has really become one of the farmers'
necessities. One Ford truck is equal to half a dozen teams, and it won't "eat its head off" X
when not working. The very low price makes it popular with shrewd farmers who analize
conditions on the farm. Let's talk it over, Mr Farmer. Price, without body, $550f.o.b. De
troit. Get your orders in at once for a Ford truck.
Ford ear fitted with self-starter in stock. Come in and see it.
