I just found this on Ebay and wonder what are these coils and in what car were they used?

Interesting. Already sold, and for $100 maybe for a bargain. I do not know early coils well enough to identify the make or model coil, or even whether or not they were originally for a Ford. But I would guess they were from about 1910 to 1912.
I do hope one of our early coil experts will come in and tell us all about them.

(My comments as much as anything are to kick this back to the top)
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Wayne is correct; they are the Kingston coils used for a short time in 1912. Andre, the ones you have linked to are Kingston used earlier, in 1909 and 1910.
