Henry and Edsel Ford Uncommon TLS Congratulate a Dealer

06 Dec

Uncommon TLS, one page, 6 x 8, Ford Motor Company letterhead, August 1, 1939. Letter congratulating dealer Floyd Ostrom for reaching an impressive goal. In full: “We take this means of extending our congratulations to you as one of the dealers who delivered 100 or more new units during the month of May 1939. We want you to know that we appreciate fully the extra effort put forth by you and your organization to achieve this distinction. We are indeed proud to have representation of this kind.” Letter is in a 8.25 x 10.5 leather display frame alongside a portrait of the Fords. Leather display is in turn suede-matted and framed to an overall size of 32 x 25. In very good condition, with uniform toning, scattered light foxing and a crease to left edge. Accompanied by Ostrom’s 1938 Los Angeles Police Department press pass. Just the third item signed by both Fords we have offered, this one with exceedingly desirable automotive content. Oversized. RR Auction COA.
