ALTUS FORD CO.
AND SERVICE STATION
We now have a FORD SERVICE STATION in connection with the sale of FORD CARS.
The Ford Motor Co. now requires that their agents take care of the Ford Cars in their
territory. Our work and prices will be under the supervision of the Ford Motor Company.
Bring Your FORDS to the Ford Service Station
and we will do your work right and at reasonable prices. Remember, that we work
on nothing but Ford Cars.
A full line of Tires, Parts, and Accessories always on hand. We also operate a Filling
Station, and carry in stock a complete line of Oils and Grease.
