Default As Promised Another Brochure, Engine Exchange 1934

Another one from the desk in the Ford Dealership. The photos show a 1934 Ford V8 Engine and a 4 cylinder as well.

Wow, $49.50 installed! Of course in the height of the depression, that was a lot of money.
Interesting for them to say the Ford is the only V8 under $2500 I would think a 1934 Ford was much lower than that when new.

Thank you for that, Bill. I can't believe the condition of it.

It goes along with my research on the Authorized Ford Rebuilder network.

It says "new" in the brochure so, how certain are you that the engine is a '34? I'm sure it probably is but, I have this display, dated '33, from the Ford Museum.

The display doesn't say anything about "new" but, the price is 9.50 less so, it can't be the same year ('34), either.

I'm trying to establish the first year of the program.

Gold was 20 dollars an ounce
it is now $1560.00 an ounce.
If the government keeps printing monopoly money, gold will be $10,000 an ounce.
an a can of soda will cost 25 dollars
