Ford comes First
|North Carolina Highway Patrol:
One of the country's largest and most modern law enforcement
organisations is the North Carolina State Highway Patrol.
Nearly 600 men patrol over 70 thousand miles of highway.
When an accident report comes in these Highway Patrolmen
move out in a hurry. The North Carolina Highway Patrol
is prepared to go anywhere, anytime to protect users
of North Carolina's fine highways - and they get there!
Now meet Colonel James R. Smith, Patrol Commander. Our
job is to enforce North Carolina's traffic laws. It's
a big job, that's why our cars have to give top performance
in every kind of driving situation - and at the same
time give our men maximum protection.
And here in Houston
Texas Ford goes first too, just as it goes first with
Police agencies all over the country. Over 70% of all
the cars operated by the nations State Police today
are Ford's - and no wonder! Nobody out-performs Ford.
Here at the Indianappolis speedway a '56 Ford V8 recently
set a new 500 mile record averaging over 107 miles per
hour. At Daytona Beach, Florida, Ford won the top award
for the best all-round performance. And at Kingston
Arizona a Ford V8 set thirty world speed records. In
performance, Ford goes first, test drive a new Ford
and prove it for yourself.
