Try the XZ or the„II„. You'll thrill to Ford's greater responsiveness the first time
you take a Test Drive. And youH discover that this new "Go" is yours through the full
range of driving speeds! Both of Ford's new engines have an extra-dee^) block extending
well below the crankshaft, giving the V-8 a * i shape, the Six an "1' shape—and you
a more rigid, smoother, quieter engine. Both are short-stroke engines, too, which means
less internal friction, more usable energy, greater gas savings and long engine life.

Feel how Ford's new Ball-Joint Front
Suspension cushions the bumps.
You'll find a new kind of ride . . . level and smooth
... even on rough, rutted roads. And, because Ford's
new ball-joint front suspension is simpler than the
conventional type . . . with 12 points of wear elimi-
nated . . . that "new cur" feel lasts longer.
Look at your beautiful surroundings.
You'll see why Ford interiors for '54 set a new high
in beauty. For here is a matchless blending of fabric,
color and styling. Every detail says "fine car" quality
from the new upholstery and trim to the unique new
Astra-Dial Control Panel. And you'll find there's
all the "living room" youll ever want or need.
See how Ford's optional power
assists* make your driving easier.
Unlike other low-priced cars, Ford offers a power-
lift system that operates on all four windows. And
Ford's power-operated front seat moves up and
down as well as back ami forth. Ford also offers
you power brakes, power steering and Fordomatic.
We hear a lot about the wis-
dom of looking at everything with ¡
an open mind. It's a good policy,
