The Ford Sedan with electric starting and lighting system and
demountable rims with 3J ^-inch tires all around, is the ideal family
car because of its all-around utility and refined and comfortable
equipment. Finely upholstered. Plato glass windows. An open car
in the spring, summer, and early fall. A closed car in ineh nic nt
weather and winter. For theatre parlies, for social visiting, for
touring, and for taking the children t? school, it is just what: you
want. Tlx low cost of operation and maintenance is not the least
of its charms. A regular Ford car, simple in design, strong in con?
struction, and durable ;-i service. Won't you come in and look it over?
