We've followed individual early Ford owners through newspaper clips, now, an early Ford dealer.
Otto and Edward Conrad became a large Ford dealer by the time the Model T was introduced. However, Conrad Brothers sold other products at the turn of the last century.
In 1900, Conrad Brothers of Scranton PA sold, among other things, Pierce bicycles:
1903, Conrad Brothers are now handling Pierce Automobiles:
Another Conrad Bros. Pierce Arrow ad claims the "largest shipment of high-grade automobiles ever received" in Scranton:
Between 1904 and 1906 I find no other mention of Conrad Bros. selling automobiles. Then, in April, 1906:
A few days later, a Ford Model K demonstration car arrives at Conrad Bros:
Conrad Brothers-Ford advertisement:
Finishing out 1906.
The first Ford Runabout (Model N) arrives at the dealership, August 1906:
By early September, another carload of Fords, and two new owners, one six cylinder and one four cylinder (K and N). The Model N demonstrator has over 1,000 miles on:
A week later, another train car load of Fords and a Model K sale:
And by year end it sounds as though the factory is catching up with the demand for cars. A December ad announces the new (improved) models for 1907:

William V. Added additional info about Conrad Bros. on the thread.
Back to 1907.......
The dealership announces the largest automobile order ever placed for Scranton PA, and a sizable order for any dealer at the time, in my opinion.
Below, a chart showing the gross commission the dealership would receive from the sale of this order based on the Ford board of directors approved commission schedule for 1907:
Conrad Brothers begin to move a lot of Fords. I wish I had a photo of the next scene:
Arrivals of Fords become more frequent. Conrad Bros. also pick up the Reo dealership:
