Someone sent this to me again and I typed it so perhaps now it can be read.
We’re writing this letter to you today because we want to help you get your money out of your Model T.
It’s still as good as a car as the day the new Model A Ford was announced and there’s no need to sacrifice it.
The Model T Ford is still used by more people than any other automobile. Eight million are in active service right now and many of them can be driven one, two, three and five years and even longer.
Bring your car to us and let us look it over. You’ll be surprised to see how little it cost to put it in tip top shape.
New fenders, for instance, cost from $3.50 to $5.00 each, with a labor charge of $1.00 to $2.50. Tuning up the motor and replacing commutator case, brush and vibrator points cost only $1.00 with a small charge for material. Brake shoes can be installed and emergency brakes equalized for a labor charge of $1.25. A labor charge of $4.00 to $5.00 can cover the overhauling of the front axle, rebushing springs, and spring perches, and straightening, aligning and adjusting the wheels.
The labor charge for overhauling the average rear axle runs from $5.75 to $7.00. Grinding valves and cleaning carbon can be done for $3.00 to $4.00.
A set of all new pistons and rings cost only $7.00. For a labor charge of $20.00 to $25.00 you can have your motor and transmission completely overhauled. Parts are extra.
Check out an authentic piece of automotive history- looks like it was actually typed on an old fashioned typewriter. 1928 Car Repair Mailer. Less than 100 yrs ago, Automotive repair advertisement in 1928... sent on a penny postcard
P.S. Just received it again from an E-mail friend, so now I'm not sure who first sent it to me. LOL See what happens as you get older.
