Will other cars have Ford's strength, quiet, and "Better Ideas"? Don't bet on it! And consider: THE W FORD is even quieter than the '66 Ford -quieter because it's the strongest ever built. * It's the strongest Ford in history. Proved on ski jumps and steeplechase hurdles. Proved at Daytona. It has Ford's "Better Ideas." Like SelectShift, that shifts both automatically and manually. Convenience Control Panel. Lots more.
