This picture is from a recent horseless carriage tour around Parker Dam. It's labeled 1905 Model N. There's no crank in front. How do you start it?

It's not a "N" It's a "F" and you crank it from the side

Steve, it's a Model F. 12 hp two cyl, cranked from the right side. My guess is it belongs to Carl Pate.

Am I correct in thinking that in a Ford Model F the engine is under the seat? I seem to remember seeing a photo or drawing that showed there is no engine under that hood.

Yes the engine is under the seat . There is a water tank under the hood .

Vintage Ford volume 5 no. 6 (Nov-Dec 1970) had a wonderful article including many pictures of an unrestored Model F. It shows the car with body on and off. Nearly every detail of the car is shown. It made a severe impact on my impressionable mind at the time and took me 35 years to acquire a 2 cyl car.
Early Ford Registry also has some nice pictures also.
Steve, thanks for posting that great picture of the F with those beautiful Gray and Davis "Bullet" lamps.

Rich
