Note it appears to be a Canadian touring based on the equal size 30 x 3 1/2 tires all around and the Chadwick Windshield that can be seen by the large windshield hinges. It also helps that the Grandson of the original owner has posted a photo on Flicker. I could not get the link to work from our web site as it kept dropping everything after the "@" sign. But if you copy the link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/50312897@N02/4620413290/ and paste it into your browser it should work. There you can view a slightly better copy of the photo.

The Grandson dated the car as a 1911 based on the 1911 license plate. But I believe he is probably off a little on the date. I believe it is more likely a late 1909 (bills on the front fenders) to mid 1910. And it does not have the 1911 style body or top. Of course Canada did not always make the same changes at the same time as the USA. But the car does not appear to have the radiator reinforcement bar on the lower part of the radiator. According to Bruce (RIP) at: http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/P-R.htm#rad about mid-year, 1910, a number of modifications were made, including a higher filler neck and the addition of the support bar across the lower part of the radiator core. [on the USA produced cars].

If someone is familiar with how to communicate on Flicker -- if you could ask the Grandson if they have the date the car was originally purchased etc. That might help us better understand how long Ford of Canada continued to sell the 1909-10 style tourings.

Respectfully submitted,
