Henry Ford experimented with the soybean and found it had many useful properties, one being the oil extract could be used in paint making. It is rumored that in the day, Chrysler offered their hydraulic brake system to Ford in exchange for the right to use the soybean oil formula in their paint. Chrysler had the best braking system then but nothing more can found on the subject so whether it is true or not remains unknown. It is ironic that today, the TISCO brand of paint, parent company Van Sickle Paint, uses a soybean oil base for their paints. Full circle...
