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.
Here is all the info anyone could want for the Ford model f!
David and Richard, thank you for the video and references. Below is a specifications page from a 1906 Ford Motor Co. sales catalog:
