gives the Ford a softer ride, a
smoother ride than many cars which
tip the scales at better than an added

What about room? Here’s an inter-
esting point. If you’ve felt that only
a costly car offered enough room, you
just ought to sit down in a Ford even
if you’re out-size and six feet four!
The so-called big car is bigger on the
outside, but unless you buy a limou­
sine with those little jump seats, it’s
not one passenger bigger inside.

about otir car for its beauty comes
from Honest, clean lines in every

rc a.
—that the appearance of a Ford Car
leaves very little to be desired. It is
“at home” wherever it goes and it
goes everywhere.
Hut what about ford quality?
Does it too match the fine car? Is the
sheet metal of the body panels as
thick? Is the finish as good? How
about the trim and things like that?
WeM, as far as we can determine, the
sheet metal is identical in thickness
in practically all instances. As to
finish — we believe Ford’s haked-on
enamel has no equal in any car. Ford
upholstery fabrics and trim are less
costly, but they’re less delicate, too,
and if anything, more durable.
How then is it possible to give you
this fine car at half the fine car price? <
Part erf the answer lies in Ford
manufacturing skills and knowledge
as evidenced by the V-8 engine. Part
of it comes from the ever increasing
numbers of cars Ford produces and
the economies they make possible.
And, part of it comes from Ford’s
willingness to give greater values
than might be expected in cars sell­
ing in Ford’s price range. And that’*
the Ford idea.
