"High Priced Quality in a Low Priced Car"
The Ford quality has never been sacrificed that the price
might be made attractively low. Quality sold the first Ford Cars
in 18q3 and quality has sold all Fords since that time.
The Ford Features are Original, Not Imitations
The Ford Motor, the Ford ignition system, the Ford transmis=
sion and all the important elements of the Ford car are distinctive
Ford ideas. We can prove this by showing you in detail the con
struction of the car.
The Ford Car Is Built for Hard Work.
If roads are poor, if hills are steep, if land is sandy, if rocks abound, if wet
weather is plenty, then the Ford Model T shows its real superiority. Because of
light weight of the car, abundance of power, splendid design, simplicity of me
chanism, low fuel consumption, little tire trouble, because of high clearance, this
car has become immensely popular.
