It was the best way to make bodies—then. But the state of the art has advanced. ' Of course, it is more expensive to make an all-steel body than to make a wooden frame and nail steel panels on to it. The better way involves an initial expenditure of several millions of dollars for new dies, which renders a change very costly. Cars, especially large expensive cars which are produced in small volume, cannot afford this, because the dies cost as much for one car as for a million. That alone explains why all' steel bodies are not used in all cars. But our basic policy from the beginning is to aake a go™* car better, regardless of cost. For example, when we discarded wood-steel body construction, it *as not because we lacked wood. We still have some thousands of acres of tw best hard wood in America. Economy would urge us to use up the wood first, and then adopt the better all-steel body. But we decided that quality was more important than expense. \ We weighed the reasons, for and against, before we «ade the onan ^ e ' a j.. We could see only one reason for retaining a mixed wpod-and-steel ww —nailing the metal on, instead of welding, an all-steel body into a strong one-piece whole. • That reason was, it would be cheaper—'or us. Our reasons for adopting an all-steel body were these: A wood-steel body is not much stronger structurally than its wooden frame. I n al1 . ^ American climates, wood construction weakens with age. Every used oar i gives evidence of this. Rain seeps in between joints and the w° od deoay ' A car may have a metal surface, and yet not be of steel construction. Under extreme shock or stress the steel body remains intact—dented haps, but not crushed. Steel does not need wood for strength or protection, Wood is fi»» f furniture, but not for the high speed vehicles of 1933. " . ' In the Ford body there are no joints to squeak, no seams to crao* or leak. The all-steel body is more expensive—to us, but npt» to you. By all odds, then, steel bodies seem preferable, *-<flalI| Wheels also have become all-steel. No one argues that an electric welded one-piece steel wheel, such as the Ford wheel, needs to be "strengthened" by adding wood to it. The one-piece all-steel body is'the strongest, safest, quietest durable body made. That is our only reason for making thei, August 7th, 1933
