MANY BUSINESSES Experience of large fleet owners reveal* the unusual reliability and economy of the new A SIGNIFICANT TRIBUTE to the value of J\ tho new Ford is found hi its increasing use by Federal, state and city gov- crnments and by Inrgc industrial companies which keep careful dny-by-dny cost records. In most instances, the Ford has been chosen only after exhaustive tests of every factor that contributes to good performance—-speed, power, safety, comfort, low cost of operation and up-kcep, reliability and long life. Prominent among the companies using the Ford are the Associated Companies of the Bell System, Armour and Company, The Borden Company, Continental Baking Corporation, Firestone Tire and Rubber Company, General Electric Company, Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, Kellogg Company, Knickerbocker Ice Company, Morton Salt Company, Pillsbury Flour Mills Company, Tho Procter and Gamble Company, and Swift & Company. Each of these companies uses a largo number of Ford cars and trucks. The Associated Companies of the Bell System use more than eight thousand. Modern business moves at a fast pace and it needs the Ford. Daily, in countless ways and places, it helps to speed the production and delivery of the world's goods and extend the useful service of men and companies. Constant, steady operation over many thousands of miles emphasizes the advantages of the sound design of the Ford car, its high quality of materials, and unusual accuracy in manufacturing. Beneath its graceful lines and beautiful colors there is a high degree of mechanical excellence. An example of the value built into tho Ford is the use of more than twenty ball nnd roller bearings. They are hidden within the car and you may never sco them. Yet they play nn important part In satisfactory, economical performance. Their function is similar to the jewels oC a fine watch. Throughout tho Ford chassis, a ball or roller bearing is used at every place where it is needed to reduce frictldni and wear and give smooth, reliable me* chonicnl operation. ^ At many points, as on the transmission: counter-shaft, clutch release, fan and pump shaft, nnd front drive shaft, these ball and roller bearings are used where less costly types of bearings might bo considered adequate. Additional instances of the high! quality built into the Ford are the extensive use of steel forgings, fully enclosed four-wheel brakes, Rustless) Steel, four Houdaille double-acting hy. draulic shock absorbers, aluminum pistons, chrome silicon alloy valves* torque-tube drive, tlirec-quartcr floating rear axle, and the Triplex shatter-proofi glass windshield. The Ford policy has always been to use the best possible material for eacH part and then, through large produo* tion, give it to the public at low cost.
