Below are links to the Ford, or Ford associated photos that I've gleaned from the library site. I have now gone through 9,600 photos, so only another 21,000 to go!
There might be the odd double up in the list as quite a few of the library photos are repeated in other places.

The early 1911 Torpedo Runabout picture is fabulous. Notice the square gas tank and early style lamps.

Dane, you've helped "fill in the blanks" on a little Ford history. The two pics titled "Two men in automobile" are driving a Ford Model K.




Under the left arm of the passenger is a leather case with the words "Courier" "Gen. Carter to Gen. Grant:"




They were part of an automobile relay that carried correspondence between the two officers:



Ironically, an Aerocar hands off the correspondence to the Ford:



Thank you again for your research,

Rob

I believe Gaston Plaintiff, Ford New York branch manager, is sitting behind the wheel of the first pic. I suspect there were two Model K (and driving teams) on the relay?

Look at the 14. Note wheels and 13 windshield, front fenders. Owners preference or Henry's exacting standards?

Excellent photographs but not remarkable. Those photos were all staged due to the type of film used or glass plate negatives which required no movement at all.

Warren - It is a '13.
