No, I couldn't. I wish though it was my shed and my Ford 100 years later!

Nice pic!

Just this very day, I had to go to the local Ford dealership with one of my sales people to take delivery of a company truck. The manager had a large photo of what was labeled a "1912 Ford Torpedo" on his wall.

I asked him about it and the story was that his wife inherited it about 15 years ago. He said they didn't really have the facilities to maintain it so, long story short, they somehow tracked down the nephew of the original owner in Coquille Oregon. That person purchased the car and it now resides in the Bandon, Oregon museum.

Presumably the fluted bonnet/hood is not 1911?

Appears to be a "restoration" photo from the 1950's or 1960's. The hood is likely a reproduction.

The hat, the slacks, the horn, and the Mobil Pegasus all say the photo is from the late-'40s to early-'60s. Louvered hoods were offered as after-market accessories in the U.S. and were common in the southern hemisphere.

Don't overlook the obvious, folks.

If you read the description from PreWar car, the photo was taken in 1937.

If you click on the photo on PreWar car, it is higher resolution you can see that it is a 1937 Massachusetts plate.

The only other Mass. plate in that particular style with the two digit year in white on the top left and the "Mass" on top right is 1945.
