THE UNIVlftSAL CAR
Out of the more than 3,000,000 Ford cart now in we, about
aixty per cent have been told to farmer . Probably no other one
thine hat brought to the farm to much of comfort and profit as has
the Ford car. It has enlarged the social life, doubled the facilities for
marketing, brought the town next door to the farm, multiplied for
the farmer the pleasures of living, and by the same token the Ford
Touring Car has brought just as much pleasure to fhe residents of the
towns and cities, because it is an every day in thTe year utility,
answering the demand of quick transportation at low expense. A
family car without an equal in low cost of operation and maintenance.
We solicit your order for one. We have the full line of Ford cars.
Wc carry the genuine Ford Parts, and assure you the best in
mechanical service and the most reasonable prices.
