THE UNIVERSAL CAR
In busy cities or on the country road,
ilu FORD is the prime favorite over the
whole motor held.
there arc strong reasons why half the
automobile buyers of America demand
FORD cars.
I'hey have proven their worth under
the most trying conditions in every part of
the world.
People buy FORD cars because they
know what they have dorn; and will do.
They have become one of the every day
necessities.
