Some FACTS About
THE UNIVERSAL CA
Here are authentic figures from the Ford factory at Detroit.
' They show you just how many Ford cars and trucks have been
built each month since January 1, 1921 and how many have been
sojd to retail customers, in the United States.
Produced Retail Customers
29,883 , 57,208
Total production 127,074 Tot. ret'l sales 208,032
showing that actual sales for the first three months of 1921 ex
ceeded production by 80,958 Ford cars and trucks. '
April requisitions already specify 107,719 additional cars and
trucks and the estimated April output of the factory and as
sembly plants combined calls for only 90,000.
These facts clearly show that the demand for Ford products
is growing much faster than manufaeturing facilities to produce
and were it not for the dealers' limited stocks, which are now
being rapidly 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 any
thing like prompt deliveries.
If you woulld be sure of having your Ford car or truck when
you want it, you should place your order now. Don't delay.
Phone us or drop us a card.
