Tom Cooper was the owner of both the Arrow (left) and 999 driven typically by Barney Oldfield. The picture dates from 1902. Picture property of The Henry Ford.
The abundance of safety equipment is overwhelming.
Thanks for posting, Royce. I don't think I have ever seen both cars in one photo. Too bad the shot is not from the other side so we could see the manifolds.
Looks very similar to a 2013 thread:
And more on the Ford - Cooper racers.
I think I've seen the hand written contract between Henry Ford and Tom Cooper, I'll try to find it.
