PAQE TWO FORD RELIABILITY TITE ronn TUDOR SEDAN Lony. hard use shows the 'value of good materials and simplicity of design EVERYWHERE you go you hear reports of ihe good performance and reliability of the Ford. One owner writes—"The Ford Tudor Sedan I am driving has covered 59,300 miles through all kinds of weather. It is still giving perfect satisfaction." Another owner describes a trip of 3217 miles in 95 hours over bad roads and through heavy rain, and sleet in the mountains. "Throughout the entire trip," he writes, "the Ford performed excellently and no mechanical trouble of any kind was experienced. The shatter-proof glass undoubtedly saved us from serious injury when a prairie chicken struck the windshield while we •were traveling at 65 miles an hour."
