THE UNIVERSAL CAR
Here Is the Ford Runabout, a perfect whirl
wind of utility. Fits into the daily life of
everybody, anywhere, everywhere, and all the
time. Tor town and country, it is all that its
name implies a Runabout. Low in cost of
operation ; low in cost of maintenance, with
all the sturdy strength, dependability and re
liability for which Ford cars are noted. We'd be
pleased to have yourorderforoneor more. We
have about everything in motor car acces
sories, and always have a lull line of genuine
Ford parts give genuine Ford service.
