I would like to find an original front license plate bracket set for my 1909 Touring. Please let me know if you have one you would be willing to part with.
I have a NOS Neverout bracket set ?
Steve, I would be interested in seeing photos of what you have. DanielSnell2@twc.com

Our 1912 had a bracket that clamped over the bottom round of the had light fork, don't know if it was original to the car. Cheers Colin
Here are some of those types, from 1913 and 1915 catalogs of accessory car parts.
May have a chore finding these today at swap meets!
If you only want to put the plate under the hand crank, would think the typical Ford #3664E (Lang's repro) 2 piece for the front crankcase mount would be good.
Or Lang's has a snappy brass front bracket for the early cars.
It is my understanding that certainly up to 1915, and maybe beyond, all Ts were sold without Front licence brackets and the plate was merely tied on with a piece of leather. I use the leather cord used on treadle sewing machines - see enclosed photo.
Andrew, I understand that ford did not offer anything for the front license plate initially. I am looking for an aftermarket original preferably, one that would bolt to the front engine mount or perhaps one that would bolt to the headlamp rim.
