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.

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.

This bracket was on our 1912 our plates in Manitoba start in 11 prior to this it was leather. This bracket is extra wide it will take 1911-15-16-17-18-19 than the plates get small thats why the extra hole, in 1932 the std plate size was started. For our 12 is bracket was still on the car but the first picture we have of the car 1936, it has a 1932 plate attached between the hood and windshield. I do not know what year this would be, based on the plate size most likely added between 15 -19 Cheers Colin

Colin, this appears to be the type that mounts on the headlight fork, correct? Are there any manufacturer's marking on them? PM me or email with price and availability.

Thanks

In my opinion, this style is by far the best. It would be a good project for someone to reproduce.

Note the dog leg - this keeps the crank from getting hung up on the plate.
