Hillman. against any Car at any Price '"pHE car that flashed down a Florida | ·*· beach to the world's land speed .record was powered by the V-type engine. The V-type engine knifed an Italian plane through the air at the record smashing speed of more than 420 xniles per hour. On the St. Clair River, the V-type engine swept to the world's speedboat record of 124.8 miles per hour. And that's the type of engine that powers the Ford V-8 for 1934. It's the only V- 8 engine you w;ll find in a car selling for less than $2395. That's why the Ford V- 8 will streak down a. highway at 80 or better. That's why it will purr along at 50 or 50 without the slightest effort. And why it is unsurpassed in acceleration by any American car regardless ojprice. The new Ford V-8 for 1934 is the most economical car that Ford has ever built. Dual carburetion and dual manifolds send it even more miles per gallon of gasoline than last year's money-saving model. This great new Ford gives you matchless comfort. It gives you the riding ease of free action for all Jour wheels--with the priceless safety of strong axle construction. Before you buy any car at any price drive the new Ford V- 8. Docs the cor you are considering give you these at no additional cost ? Impartant -- Check Each Item 1.
