Wishing I had just one of those cars today...
Thanks Jay. I would say they are Model N (based on the round pressurized oil tank on the right front of the engine), at Piquette. At one point Ford completed 120-130 cars a day in the summer of 1908.
Wow. Cool pic Jay. Gotta get back to Piquette again. Would sure be fun to watch the guys go at those cars!
Makes me wonder if one of those cars is the one in my garage. Same engine and oil canister.
I would guess this photo was taken between 1907 and the summer of 1908. The radiators look like 1907-1908 style, and news articles said Ford was only producing model S and K Roadsters in quantity after May 1908.
I am also guessing that most of the work seen in this photo was completed by Ford Manufacturing at a different location, prior to March 1907, but that's just speculation.
Wouldn't it be cool if God pointed out today that the bolt (or whatever part) on the third car from the left is on YOUR CAR now!
Or for that matter, any of the old pictures might be parts of our car today.
For what it's worth, it's the third floor at Piquette. There, now you know ;o)
Must have been a backup on rear axles.
