WOMEN'S CONTRIBUTION TO THE MOTORCAR
There is some doubt that people care to hear very much about what
goes on under the hoods of their cars. Well, it is not essential

Power. There is 75 horsepower (we could say 80) with less weight
to pull around, it's life-like response is rather remarkable. Economy.
Our V-8 gets 17 to 20 miles a gallon. Appearance. This is a woman's
contribution. The motor car must not only be useful, but also good-looking.
View the Ford V-8 and you will see its fine appearance. Comfort.
This also is a woman's concern. In 30 years she changed the motor
car from a wagon to a coach. There is no comfort without a quiet,
smooth-running engine. We have all the other ingredients too; color,
good taste, quality, ease, safety, roominess, and convenience. Sincerely,
