Here are authentic figures from the Ford factory at De troit Thev show you just how many Ford cars and trucks have been built each month since January 1, 192 and how many have been sold to retail customers, m the United States. Delivered to Retail Customers 57,200 63,603 87.221 Produced 29,883 35,305 61,886 127,074 showing that actual sales for the first three months of 1921 exceed productlon by 80,968 FoTd cars and trucks.! April requisitons already specify 107,719 additional cars and trucks and the estimated April output of the factory and assembly plants combined calls for only 90,000! These facts clearly show that the demand for Ford Products Is growing much faster than mnufacturlng facilities to produce and were°it not for the dealers' limited stocks, which are now being raDidlv depleted, many more customers would have been compelled to wait for their cars. It will be only a matter of weeks, therefore, until a big surplus of orders will prevent anything like prompt de liveries.
