Ford - The Universal Car. Why Do We Say So? In France 700 cars out
of 1,000 are Fords. In Italy 850 cars out of 1,000 are Ford's. In
Egypt 996 cars out of 1,000 are Ford's. There are 6 million cars
in the United states, and more than one-half are Ford's. The Ford
is durable, easy to operate, goes anywhere it is possible for cars
to go, easily repaired. Now is time to buy a car; place your order
for a Ford.
