Have been built and actually delivered to retail buyers since
August 1, 1916.
These figures 320,817 represent the actual number of cars
manufactured by us since August 1, 1916, and delivered by our
agents to retail buyers.
This unusual fall and winter demand for Ford cars makes it neces
sary for us to confine the distribution of cars only to those agents
who have orders for immediate delivery to retail customers, rather
than to permit any agent to stock cars in anticipation of later
spring sales.
We are issuing this notice to Intending buyers that they may pro
tect themselves against delay or disappointment in securing Ford
cars. If, therefore, you are planning to pu chase a Ford car, we
advise you to place your order and take delivery now.
Immediate orders will have prompt attention.
Delay in buying at this time may cause you to wait several months.
Enter your order today for immediate delivery with our authorized
Ford agent listed below and don't be disappointed later on.
