(Continued on Page 3) Positive Proof of poRD Economy City of Detroit purchases 137 new Ford cars Hundreds now in use prove low cost of operation THESE 137 new Ford cars represent one of the largest deliveries ever made to a municipality at one time. 21 radio-equipped Ford scout cars were traded in on this purchase. They had been operated day and night for two years in heavy traffic and all kinds of weather. Their individual records ranged from 78,434 miles to 143,723 miles with a grand total of 2,283,097 miles. The operating cost of the 21 cars was 2.284 cents a mile — less than 2 1/3 cents. This cost included all fuel, oil, tires, repairs and every other item except depreciation and insurance. Of 577 Ford cars in Detroit City service, the 300 in the Police Department traveled a total of 6,591,937 miles during the past fiscal year, at an average cost of 2.9 cents a mile. Many claims have been made on operat ing costs, but here in the carefully kept motor car records of the City of Detroit is positive proof of Ford economy. In the paragraphs above, it is seen that 21 Ford scout cars averaged less than 2 1/3 cents a mile and 300 Ford cars in all branches of Detroit police work averaged 2.9 cents a mile! Day and night, twenty-four hours a day, these Ford cars are in operation. Few branches of transportation demand such grueling service. The records show that low fuel and oil consumption is but one of the Ford's many economies. Ford ma terials, simplicity of design and accuracy in manufacturing provide unusual strength, stamina and freedom from replacements and repairs. The individual car buyer as well as the purchasing department of a city or a busi ness cannot afford to ignore the proved economy of the Ford car. FIFTEEN DIFFERENT BODY TYPES *430 •» *640 (F. O. B.
