The Ford Sedan, with electric starting and
lighting system, demountable rims with 3 -inch
tires all around, is the ideal family car because
of its general utility and refined and comfortable
equipment. Finely upholstered. Plate glass
windows. An open car in the spring, summer,
and early fall. A closed car in inclcment
weather and winter. Rain-proof, dust-proof. In
the city or the country, a family car. The low
cost of operation and maintenance is not the
least of its charms. Won't you come in and
look it over? Sedan I', o. It. Leon
