THE UNIVERSAL CAR
The Ford Motor Company Makes the Above BIG CUT in
Prices of Ford Cars, Ford Trucks and Fordson Tractors!
Effective Wednesday, September 22, 1 92Q
in the face of the fact that the Ford Motor Company now have 146,000 unfilled orders for immediate delivery on hand these
new low prices will mean a very large temporary loss to the Ford Motor Company while using up materials on hand, hot at the
the high prices, but Henry Ford is willing to make the sacrifice in order to assist in bringing business back to a GOING condition
as quickly as possible and to re-establish the BUYING POWER OF THE DOLLAR.
" ,a vow?

Henry Ford says there is no sense or wisdom in trying to maintain an artificial standard of values
and for the best interests of all it is time a real practical effort was made to bring the life of the country and
the business of the country down to regular PRE-WAR basis.
We are at your command with a force of trained Ford mechanics to insure reliable FORD SER
VICE and we are eager to fill your orders for NEW FORD CARS at the NEW FORD PRICES.
Do not overlook the fact that at these greatly reduced prices every Ford dealer will be flooded with
orders for new cars for immediately delivery and our monthly allotment will not nearly supply the demand,
so phone us or call at once and place your orders if you expect to get immediately delivery.
