You should investigate that reason before buying a car. In the first four months of 1930 the Ford model A car is the only car that did not show a decrease in sales over the same period of 1929 out of the twenty leading makes. Ford showed an increase of 17,207 over the same period a year ago. The nearest competitor showed a loss of 9,745. THERE IS A EEASON why THE FORD increases its sales while the other leading twenty makes show a decrease. Can you afford to ignore that reason 1 ? A Model A Ford engine is now being used in airplanes.
