I bought an original 1916 Model T Ford garage and am looking for original shop and showroom display items. I am mostly interested in items from 1909- 1940s. This was the original Ford garage in Kenyon Mn. from 1916-1958. Any help or ideas are appreciated. It also has a full living quarters upstairs. I would also like to have a large outside Ford sign, Thanks, Bob. 507 458 6778. pixpixpixpixpixpixpix

Very cool- I'm jealous! I once had plans to buy a building like that and live there but I'm doubtful life will turnout that way at this point. Wish I had something neat to offer but most of my stuff is rather common...

I wonder if my 10 touring ever set foot in that garage for a repair? It lived in that area for 80 years.

Hi Bob, I, too, am jealous... I've wanted a building like this for a long time. Just wondering, do you have any pictures of what it looked like in the Model T years?
Thanks,

Keith

Hi Pat, I am sure it was here, only 2 blocks away. Maybe it should be back there. Bob.

My dad bought a NOS 23-25 turtle deck at that garage. That is the one on my roadster.

Neat place Bob!

I stopped by today around 3:30 on my way home from a job site in Faribault. Your van was out front and the door was open, so I wandered inside a bit. I didn't find you inside, and I was on the clock so I will have to come by another day to get the tour. :-)

Bob, whatever that painted advertisement is on the side of the building, you've just got to restore it. Very nice building and good luck with it. I know we're all looking to see how it comes along. Jerry

Hi Jerry, It is Firestone Tires, it will be back, The other side is all blank except the last dealership advertisement. There will be more vintage advertising on it and some old historic city scenes with old cars, Thanks, Bob

Bob:

If I recall correctly, a while back my father mentioned to you that he would trade this gas gauge for a comparable one.

I have a few things; Ford dealer sales chalk board, mechanical floor jack, one of a kind hand painted sign of Henry Ford double sided from Early Ford Dealer in Illinois. A 5 quart oil can made for Model A Ford's.

It's my dream to own an old building exactly like this.....with my car collection on the first floor and living quarters on the second.

I'd do exactly what you're doing....outfit the garage to be period correct.
