When the test comes, you want to know that
your car will measure up to the requirements.
Ford cars, with their light, strong, flexible
frames, sturdy, powerful motors and simple
design, meet all demands. In city or coun
try, on good roads or bad, under all condi
tions, the Ford gets there— and gets back—
at an average cost of two cents a mile for
operation and maintenance.
Buyers will share in profits if we sell at retail
300,000 new Ford cars between August 1914
and August 1915.
