Something about the shape of this car on Shorpy suggest Model K to me, but of course I could be quite wrong!
Full picture is here-
HI DAN,The car Is not a ''K'' . A ''K'' FORD does not have a raised centre section running through the hood.
Thanks Bob, I saw that line on the hood, but took it to be reflection or shadow.
One K at the Towe Museum in Sacramento:
It is definitely not a Model K Ford. It looks a lot like a 1906 Queen Model K.
Actually , there IS a version of the " K " Ford that has a raised center section of the radiator , and a matching raised center section in the hood .
When I first saw this thread I thought it might have been about Rob Heyen's new secret car!!!!
Thanks for lightening my pic, Art. Hadn't thought to do that.
DOUG ,I WOULD BE INTERESTED TO SEE SUCH A PICTURE OF A ''K' LIKE THIS.
DOUG, I would like to see a picture of such a ''K'' WITH A RAISED BONNET SECTION.
Bob , The Harrah Collection had one fully restored , they called it a 1906 " K " . I don`t know where it is now , but I saw it every time I went to the Collection in the 1970`s ( about twice a year , on average ). I`m sure pictures are available .
DOUGH, I have an early ''K'' [picture shown] and is the same as the HARRAH car you are refering to . I can assure you that there was never a ''K'' made with a raised hood section
I think the confusion stems from the early "humped" radiator such as yours. Some light/reflection cause photos to look as if the "bonnet" is raised to match the rad.
HELLO ALL !! O.K. , I stand corrected !! I remembered the Harrah`s car as having a raised hood section . I was sure about the radiator . The last time I saw it was about 1982 , or so . Time and memory sometimes play tricks , and I`m certainly not going to continue this mistake as some might . Thank you for correcting the record , as that is what is most important here , not my ego !!
