It helps to give you fine-car roominess, as well as fine-car performance. ' The Ford V- 8 engine takes up less space under the hood because of its compact design. And it is positioned forward in the chassis, in accordance with the most modern construction. More of the car's length can thus be used for passengers--extra inches of leg room are provided in both the front and rear compartments. Wide seats are another reason for the big-car roominess of the Ford. All seats in all body types (except the individual bucket-type front seats of the Tudor Sedans) hold three persons in comfort. The 1936 Fordor Sedans have 3 } /2 inches more elbow room in the rear seat because the rear-quarter trim is recessed above the arm rests. We'd like to have you ride in the Ford V-S for 1936. Actual measurements will confirm your own impression of big-car roominess and comfort. TOLICT "The car we make does not have to be cast aside every year.
