Another example of just how shiny the finish was when new.

Did anybody else notice that the rear tires have some sort of tread but the fronts appear smooth ? If this car is as new as the shine appears to indicate, do you think it was delivered with two different tire styles, or had fronts or rears already been replaced ?

I have read many places that Ford began supplying treaded tires on the rear only for the first few years.

I wonder if his parents blew all of his money too before he turned 18. :-)

The car is an early '17 model.

The seats and top look factory new as well. Don't see any mud build up under the rear fender either.

It is a 1917 Ford but it does not have the riveted windshield so not exactly early in the model year.

Love those light grey tires on a black car.

Any one want to venture a guess on that tub shaped item in the store alcove? All I can make out is the cross design and some blurred words on top.

Erik, thanks for the added clarification. I was going by the equal length windshield hinges when I called it early. I did think about the rivets which would be even earlier. Perhaps I should have called it a mid '17.
