Yeah , I think it is. Right hand in back is dead giveaway. Good eye Terry.

It looks like the guy with the fish has a washboard and some brush alongside the hood of the car.

I think he "caught" the fish with the shotgun. I don't see a fishing pole.

Is picture #3 a '25? Hard to tell, but it appears to be new. I don't think there is even a spare tire mounted on the rim yet.

Larry,

Bottom Line Up Front: I believe the touring in photo #3 is either a 1924 or 1925 high cowl touring. I do not know of a way to tell from that photo if it was a 1924 or 1925 model year.

Additional details -- which you already know but others might enjoy.

If the parts were not changed out, the following could help date the car if we could see them:

If we could see if the hinge was equal length that would help place it at Aug 1924 or later (see: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/80257/114100.html which I believe would be a 1925 model year car ).

Or if we could see if the top had a one piece rear glass that would place it late 1925 model year.

If the car had come with the balloon tires we would also know it is a 1925 model year car http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/U-Z.htm#wheels .

The spare rim was included in the price of the car "IF" it had demountable rims, but the tire and tube were extra cost. Depending on who purchased the car they may or may not have paid for the extra tire and tube when they purchased it or later as they drove it. I would suspect most owners would have purchased a spare tire and tube if they purchased the car with demountables -- but I do not have any documentation to back that up.

Note the first photo I believe was discussed before. It appears to have brass lamp rims, metal cowl -- indicating 1915ish. It also appears to be RHD with a passenger door that opens on the left front. I believe that could be a Canadian 1915; English 1915; or USA if the photo was inverted. But I thought they had narrowed it down some more in that previous discussion. Or it may be a different black 1915 Ford I'm thinking about.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

Hap, you are right on all counts. It looks like it has the 17" steering wheel, so my guess is it's a '25.

The man in the first photo looks a lot like my grandfather(on the left).
