The 60-horsepower Ford V-8 engine
was first developed for Europe, where
fuel costs are high. Two years' usage
there proved its unusual economy.
When the "60" came to this country
this year, the Ford Motor Company
made no mileage claims waited for
facts, written on American roads by
American drivers.
Now Ford "60" owners are reporting
averages of 22 to 27 miles on a gallon
of gasoline. That makes it the most
economical Ford car ever built!
Best of all, the Ford "60" is just as
big and roomy just as handsome,
sturdy and safe as the famous 85
horsepower Ford V-8. And it sells at
the lowest Ford price in years.
If you want a big car for a small
budget a car you can drive with pride
and profit see the thrifty "60" soon!
