Hi all. A few weeks back Herb posted these. I was lucky enough to buy the original photographs. The car has a lot of early features, and I'd say it was a lower serial number than about 1200. Pity you can't see the lever or levers but I wonder whether the pedals are the giveaway. If it was a 3 pedal wouldn't the third pedal have been visible in the side picture?
Its certainly not a new car, BUT is it new for them, an early second hand car purchase ??
Looks to me like these people had money...I'm not so sure it's just the poor picture quality giving the car an "old" look.
As we discussed before the 4 bolt rear body to frame bracket is a clue, as is the low door handle position. Both features were typical on the first 2500 cars.
There is a reverse pedal, so it is a 3 pedal car, likely with a water pump originally. If it were a 2 pedal car both pedals would be about the same height.
It looks as if it could be a 2 lever 2 pedal but the pedals should be in line with each other. The windshield must have been installed latter in 1909. I don't believe that windshield was used that early in production. I have no idea what the headlights are. Good photo of an early T.
Thanks Andrew on revisiting this photo and glad you got the Originals
Would you mind if I used these photos credited to you and the forum on The Old Motor .com?
Sure David. I've sent you a pm.
The young fellow is bare-footed and has his foot on the spoke of the left front wheel. Must be summer.
