THE UNIVERSAL CAR
Every Ford Owner Should Know
Just what Ford Service is, and why it is different from ordinary garage service,
and why it is more profitable to patronize the Authorized Ford Dealer?-The
Ford Dealer is part of the Big Ford Family. He carries a large stock of genuine
Ford parts for repairs and replacements so you don't have to wait while he sends
for them, and he uses only genuine parts because he knows the imitation parts
aren't r1 spendable and don't wear.
He has a thoroughly equipped up to the minute garage with tools that enable
his Ford Mechanics to efficiently and properly make any repair-from a minor
adjustment to a complete overhaul. And when the work is finished, his bill
represents the reasonable, standard Ford prices.
Now, we are Authorized Ford Dealers-a part of that great Ford Service or
ganization which was formed chiefly to put within each community a dealer
who would have more thar, a passing interest in Ford repairs and adjustments.
We are prepared and equipped to render prompt, careful Ford service. Drive
in or 'phone 82 and we'll come after your car.
