Last night (year) I posted three "Models" that don't show up in "official" Ford history.

I'll re post since the post was on last years forum. My point is when it comes to Ford history "never say never".

Enjoy,

Rob

First, the Model H. This car was advertised by Wanamaker Ford in June, 1905. John Wanamaker was one of Fords largest agents in the early days.

This article discuses a Ford air cooled car shown at an auto show in February, 1904.







And third, an account about Henry Ford driving a six cylinder Model N or S car with a six cylinder prototype, passing much larger cars to their surprise. This car,,or another similar one now is in Australia and toured last summer.

I would sure like to know more about that model H. I wonder how many, if any, were ever built.
Thank you rob, for posting these again!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

I forgot to add, look at the description of the Ford air cooled car. At the bottom of the article it says "Another feature......... A handsome closed coup'e...."

Looks like not only an air cooled (Model N size?) motor car (15 hp) but also a closed coupe body shown by Ford. IN EARLY 1904! This is over two years before the Model N, and four years before the first ad we've seen for a 1908 Model S coupe (records show Models S coupes were built and sold, 1908).
