This morning I was cleaning my rear spring perchs and getting them ready for paint. I noticed that there is a FORD script on the end of the bolt. Seems that Henry wanted his name on everything. Thought I'd post this picture, because I find this interesting, maybe others do to.

Henry made sure the his dealers towed the line too. Ford dealers were the ones who could be swayed by copied parts made by other companies that were cheaper than Ford factory parts, sprinkled throughout the Service Bulletins are comments warning about such 'spurious' parts useage.

The Ford Jeeps made during the War had Ford on every conceivable part and place.
