Cool, looks like they changed your license plate, took Ford off the radiator and changed the background. Hope you got your overheating problem fixed.

Thanks for the comments :-)
We shot the commercial last September at the Disney Ranch in Newhall. I took the mirrors and "Ford" script emblem off of the car & polished it up. The production crew promptly sprayed dulling agent (hair spray) on the brass to avoid reflections & studio dirt to emulate a real life car on a dirt road. It was a lot of fun and Chris Paul of the Clippers was a real gentleman and enjoyed the car. I'll try to post some additional photos later.

Why is the woman approaching the driver's side of the car? She can't get in through the non existant door.

The lady is approaching the driver's side of the car to kick the front tire.She has her right foot off the ground ready to kick the tire.

That is fantastic. Bill, thanks for sharing this.

What are the details on the nice green truck in this version of the ad?

Will we see the commercial on national TV?

Interesting that they took out the Ford script in the radiator. Must not have wanted to pay the royalty. Anyone knows it is a model T Ford anyway.

The other commercial used a 1929 Model A truck (even though it was supposed to be 1922). They shot that one on the back lot that same day in the afternoon. Originally they were going to use about 15 cars including our 1924 Studebaker... The count kept going down and ended up with just our T and the A truck for the series of commercials :-)
