Default NY Times Crossword Puzzle Clue

In the NY Times Crossword Puzzle (No. 0828) in Thursday's Dallas Morning News, the clue for 60 Across was "1920s - '30s Ford output".

Seven letter answer.

Bet you get this one!

Usually crossword puzzles clues are misleading, require a foreign language for an answer, devious, or worse. The answer to this one is simple, but remember most of the puzzle solvers aren't into this hobby. They aren't looking for such a narrow answer.

If we had made up the clue, we likely would have the time frame 1928 - 1931.
