THE UNS VERS AL CAR
Weak Links in a Strong Chain
That's just what imitation parts are wherf they become a part of your
Ford car. They look strong enough, but the metal isn't there, the strong,
durable Vanadiun;4steel that goes into the Ford Chassis and every Ford
part. Ford parts are specially cast and heat-treated, each according to its
use. Some require a hard, flint-like wearing surface, others need resili
ency, and some need just "toughness."
Ford metallurgists have been studying these problems for sixteen
years and know just how each unit should be made to endure a maxi
mum amount of wear and tear. They know that best results can be ob
tained only by the use of special formulas for different parts, and that
honest Ford parts wear from thirty-five to one hundred per cent longer
We carry complete assortments of genuine Ford parts for both passen
ger cars and trucks. And our garage is equipped to give careful, prompt
Ford service fx-om minor adjustments to complete overhauls. Drive in,
it's better to be safe than sorry. Come to the Authorized Ford dealer for
