rolled off the Ford Rouge Plant pro

25 million cars since 1903 . . . more
than one-third of all the cars ever
built , . . enough cars to transport the
entire population of the United States.
The figures represent a remarkable
contribution to the social welfare, the
industrial stability and the general
progress of our country.
People respect Ford efficiency. They
know Ford uses fine materials, the
best workmanship at good wages, the
most exact precision measurements.
They know these things are passed

do business with such a company.
That is the only reason it has been
required to produce 25 million cars.
Naturally, too, they expect
more of a Ford car, more this
year than last year more
each year than the year before. They
have every right to. The experience
gained in building 25,000,000 cars en
