The Ford Motor Company sees to it that you get a safe car. Unusual power to go is combined with unusual power to stop. Ford brakes are an outstanding feature. They are powerful, efficient and easy to apply--with more braking area per pound of weight than any other car under $1095. But Ford safety is more than the safety of good brakes. It is built into every part of the car. The Ford body is all steel . . . steel reinforced with steel and electrically welded into a one-piece unit for still greater strength. All Ford body types have Safety Glass throughout at no extra cost. Three other reasons why you will feel safer in a Ford are ease of handling, stability, and the alert, obedient performance of the V- 8 engine. The Ford is steady on curves. It hugs the road because of correct weight distribution and because its center of gravity is low. You will find that the steady, sure response of the Ford communicates calmness and confidence to those in the car and makes each journey easier and more reposeful. The Ford thus gives you double safety. The way it drives helps you to avoid danger. The way it is built provides unusual protection in time of emergency.
