Largest Selling 8




in the World,..,


the FORD V-8


Here's why!

People just naturally go for 8 cylinders
m the FORD package!
And to a world record extent!
Just think, in the first 11 months of
1955 alone, 344,496 more people bought
SFord V-8's than the two other low-
priced competitive eights combined!
Of course, the reason the Ford V-8 is
the largest selling eight-cylinder car in
the world is that more people like its

brand of performance-the kind that
comes with the car!
These people aren't amateurs in
judging engines. Nearly 24 years of
building Ford V-8's to supply their
demand is convincing proof of that.
And the Ford V-8 of today is the best
yet ... by a country mile!
Smoother and quieter-you can'
scarcely hear it, even with the hood unl

Sassier-just ask the highway patrol
officer who drives one. He knows it
takes a Ford to catch a Ford!
And, for the very practical question
of durability-ask a Ford cab driver. He
knows how Fords take it days on end.
So, if it's performance that you want

to make a town better, howl because that town

Don't back your fire department or your

the insurance rates down, tell everybody that
is what they are supposed to do. Don't thank
