New Fords are in
From an Oct. 20th newspaper ad in my shed. Five new models from $532 to $769. Janssen Motor Co.
Grandad bought a new Chevy in 1938 for $600 even, I remember he took me to Beattie KS and gave the dealer the cash in 20 dollar bills. That was the height of the great depression and prices were quite cheap, problem, most didn't have any money. Have no idea how long it took grandad to save up that amount of money. We were riding in a 28 Whippet made by Willys-Knight a little under powered but it got you there. 40 MPH seemed to be about top speed.
Lets see, if you multiply those 36 prices by 25 you might be able to buy an inexpensive Ford.
