Fords on
Mr. Edsel t3. Ford, President of the Ford Motor Company,
gives out the following statement:
"The price of the FORDSON Tractor has been reduced from $790.00
to $626.00, effective immediately.
"This price change has been made possible through lower costs of
materials and the fact that we are now located in our new Tractor Plant
with greatly increased economic manufacturing facilities in immediate
connection with our foundry and machine shops and large blast furnaces
where iron is poured directly from the ore, giving us maximum efficiency
with the power to reduce cost of production, and down comes the price
in line with our policy to market our products at the lowest possible
digure without in any way affecting our high standard of quality.
"We are particularly pleased in being able to bring about this big re
duction in price at this time because the farmer needs all the help we
can give him and this big out in price will be the means of placing a val
uable power unit within the reach of practically every one of them, not
to mention indu~trial and commercial concerns which likewise have ben
elitted through its use and are already realizing, to a much greater ex
tent, its value as a power and hauling unit. But particularly has the
FOktDSON Tractor proved a most valuable factor in the-saving of farm
labor, at the same time increasing the per acre crop yield as well as mak
ing possible a utilization ot previously uncultivated land, to say nothing
ot removing no end of drudgery.
"There is no question that the use of machine power on the farm is
the greatest advancement made in the development of agriculture, not
only in money saving and money making results, as well as raising the
standards of iving on the farm to a much higher level, but because of its
- proved value in making every type of land more productive, and conse
quently our desire to piace the kbRDSON within the reach ot all.
TRUUK PRICES, which are alreadg at the lowest possible figure and
now with rock bottom reached on the tractor price a further reduction
in price of either the Jar, Truck or Tractor is out of the question; in fact,
the big price cuts nave been made in anticipation of continuous maxi
mum production and increases may be necessary before long if a large
volume or ncw business is not obtained. I'herefore, present prices of
Ford prouuctf cannot be guaranteed against possible increases."
Ask for the book "The Fordson at work," which will be supplied free of
-set. Let us demonstrate the value of the i'ordson on your farm, in your
,actury, lumber yard, coal yard, or in any general hauling or power workr
, ou nave to do, and let us nave your order for a F'ordson.
