Jay,

As always thank you for posting so many great photos.

It appears to be a 1913 model year English Ford. The roadster was shown at the Sept 1912 Olympia Motor Show and announced to be available from Oct 1, 1912. And the touring came later in Dec 1912. [ref: page 61 & 62 “The English Ford Book” available from the vendors.] Bob Trevan posted a photo from the Sept 1912 Olympia Show on the forum at: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/257047/289166.html?1337239617 and I have reposted it below:



From: http://www.modeltbook.co.uk/index.html the 1913 model year touring that is on the cover of “The English Model T Ford” is shown below: Note the cowl (they used the term scuttle, windshield, brackets holding the windshield to the cowl (scuttle), the air vents on the cowl, and the curved fenders.



For a review of the chapters in “The English Model T Ford” see: http://www.modeltbook.co.uk/chapter-by-chapter.html And to purchase a copy (I’ve really enjoyed the book and learned a lot about the differences between the USA and the English cars) it is available at: http://www.mrmodelt.com/the-enlish-model-t-ford-book.htm and the vendors.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

The slant, one piece windshield strikes me as a most unusual difference between 1913 Fords from both countries. And in Jay's incredible picture above, comment has to be made about those gargantuan cowl lamps. Thanks Jay and Hap
