I have what I believe is a dealer display box for Ford Emergency kits. The kit is the small box on the left that isn't in very good condition. Were these Model T era and has anyone ever seen a picture of the display box in a dealer showroom photo?
I have an Emergency Kit that is mint and has all the contents (which are also mint). Everything is T.
Wow, that is cool! Would love to find one for "my girls". (and Pete)
I keep one under the seat in my '27. That's where I found it when I bought the car along with the original 1927 Florida license plate.
Yes those were counter top displays in a Ford Dealership garages. There is a photo in one of the Ford Service Bulletin s that shows the display on the service counter. I have one. They come up occasionally on ebay. Obviously they are not as plentiful as the kits themselves.
Here is mine - NOS, everything there in original packing. Ford script plug, box contains original bulbs and the patch kit has the original patches:
Ron, that is a really nice kit! A complete set like that has to be really hard to come by.
Justin - thank you!! Have had it about 12 years now. Paid more than I wanted to at the time, but the condition was just way too nice to pass up (told myself I was never going to find another one that had been untouched). Supposedly it was found in an old dealership that was closing and being cleaned out. Would LOVE to find one of the dealer display ones like you have.
The tire repair kit is usually missing the patches and the sandpaper and the cement. Here are the original patches:
Here is a picture of the envelope that contains the patches and the emery cloth (looks like sandpaper to me)
