I came home from work this afternoon and found a manila envelope had come in the mail. It contained an original Ford manual dated 1919. A friend of mine in the Midwest was cleaning out some of his dad's things and came across it, so he sent it to me. Original literature is so cool!

Very nice ! Sooo, does a '19 reside in your garage ? If not, I have one in mine - hint - hint !

No, but a '24 touring does. It has a lot of good info that applies to my '24 also. Sorry, but I'll keep it for now.

"That's a joke, ah say, that's a joke, son." - to quote one of my favorite Disney characters !

Senator Claghorn from Fred Allens Alley always said that.

Foghorn Leghorn appeared in Merrie Melodies and Looney Tunes cartoons, which were Warner Brothers Pictures not Disney.

He was my favorite too!!!

Steve T, that's a very cool pic, the lighting makes it look almost like an illustration.
Steve B. There were some very close reprintings done of that booklet, others will have to tell you how to spot the "fakes"--just in case, as yours looks soooo clean!

Thanks for the correction, Henry - I was lucky just to remember the rooster's name !

I wish I would have used the opposite background - a row of Arborvite trees !

The manual looks old, but how old? Who knows. The pages are slightly yellowed, the back cover is missing and the front cover is a little rough. The 2 staples holding the book together are rusty. 3 newer staples attach the front cover. It may be a reprint from many years ago or an original. How can I tell?

Here's one way to tell. This manual (top photo), looks like yours and original but, it is not. Look on the back cover to see if it has a "Polyprints" mark. That means it's an older reproduction.

Then there is my parts price list. No mark on it. Is it original? I don't know.

Unfortunately the back cover is missing.
