tUE UM IVERS Aft CAR
Dear Mr. Prospect:
You will want your new Ford car this sum
BUT! Do you know there is a shortage of
Ford cars and that this condition is becoming
worse each day ?
Feeling sure you will want delivery of a Ford
car for this summer's use, we thought it well
to tell you of this shortage and advise you to
place your order at once.
The prices of Ford cars have not advanced
yet. The touring still sells at $492.04 with elec
tric light and starter at Edgefield. Should you
not care to pay all cash at once, we can highly
recommend our thrift plan. You pay $185.35
cash on delivery for a Ford touring car com
plete in every detail and the balance can be
paid at $30.89 per month. There is no other
charge. The above includes interest and insur
ance for one year, in fact everything.
With the present shortage of cars and no
hope of relief, we suggest that you get your
order in as quickly as possible to insure a deliv
ery. Do It Today! Do It NOW! Come in
let's talk it over. Very truly yours?
Have one one-ton Oldsmobile truck
will sell reasonable and on easy
terms. At little expense it can be put
in good condition for lumber haul
or any other kind of hauling.
