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.
