F.K. Shackelford & Bro., local agents for the Ford, are in receipt of a notification from the Ford Motor Company advising them of the purchase by Mr. Ford of the Lincoln Motor Co. It states that all Ford Agents throughout the United States and foreign countries will be appointed agents for the Lincoln car which will soon be in sufficient quantity production to insure early deliveries.

As soon as Mr. Ford acquired this property, he announced a reduction in the price of approximately $1,000 on each model and the retail price now ranges from $3,300 for the open models and up to $5,200 for the closed car.
