Two distinct advantages result from it: 1. More even compression of fuel, giving Mill greater power, faster acceleration, quicker BUrting and smoother performance m cold weather. 2. More complete utilization of fuel, more miles to the gallon of gasoline, with consequent economy. Crankcasc dilution is reduced to a minimum, thereby conserving oil with still further economy in operation. Increased efficiency at less cost ii a notable achievement. Yet it is only one of many improvements which distinguish this new and greater Ford V-8 for 1934. Clear-vision Ventilation. Constant Supply of freih Air without Drafts or Obstruction to View,. As perfected in the New Ford, this system of ventilation operates efficiently at all speeds, winter or summer. In cold or stormy weather, the new adjustable window ventilators can be opened the desired amount to provide fresh air. Individual control on front door and rear-quarter windows enables passengers to obtain desired ventilation without causing discomfort to others. Windshield and windows do not fog when ventilators are opened. In warm weather, the windshield— which opens—and the cowl ventilator provide additional fresh air. Dual carbureiion gives smoother operation in all driving range* from idling to highest top spent. NOW ALL ON DISPLAY AT FORD DEALERS $515 UP (F. O. B. Dciroi*. ptu) fni|tit, dtllitrr tntf tax.
