These Fords are in color! I further understand that they are in Australia.
We need more photos showing that the dealerships did repaint many of their new Fords in colors right here in the USA. I am only saying this as I knew and had him, Mr Elsey, paint my Ford restoration in 1966; Both he and his brother went to work at the Springfield Ford dealership as young boys doing the sanding and later the gun work. It was great talking to him then about all of this. I then belonged to MOTA and not MTFCA nor I then. I did NOT know anything but the old saying as long as it was black! He told me that a lot of people would NOT BUY a black car new back then especially city folk. I think we should listen and give him credit for what he told me. I know about what the factory and you all have said BUT I think credit is due here too. He and his brother had their own body shop in Springfield, Mo. Elsey Brother's Body Shop. It was right across the street from the Medical Arts building on Cherry and Kimbrough. A long narrow building from the 30's. Dark and all wooden beamed. Rock front. Garage doors at the narrow front and rear with no windows. I guess I was lucky to have known him from that time. It was soon torn down right after they retired within a couple of years after repainting my '25 Ford touring. Both he and his brother worked for that Spfld. Ford dealership for more than 16 years before starting their own body shop. He was in his 60's back then.

David, what's that light coloured spot on the rear mudguard? Fossil evidence of rear door stops?

Allan from down under.

Thanks Erich! The old photos have become one of the best features of this forum.

This one's not a dealership anymore, but once was:

Neidt-Ertel Motor Company Authorized Ford Agents, ca. 1920

ertel

From my post in 2011: owned by Edward C Neidt and Elton T Ertel

I hope to take my T there and photograph it in front of it. Maybe I'll get lucky and there will be no cars parked there and the sign will not be painted over.
