Seems like one radiator would be enough. :-)

The horn, upside down?? I thought I read on one of Royces posts that the bell should be away from the hood?

The horn is upside down. When it is installed correctly, water doesn't stay in the horn.

It's all in how you look at it...The horn is right side up, it's the car that is upside down!

What are those brackets on the upper face of the dash (firewall)?

Never mind--Cowl lamp brackets. They looked odd.

For what it's worth, that was filmed at Highland Park in 1953. My dad worked there at the time and saw them film it.

The tires should have been the thing that said the picture was later?? Bud in Wheeler,Mi.

I knew right away that it was a screenshot of a film recreation because I have seen many times before. It shows up as stock footage in documentaries on PBS on a regular basis. Note that I included "1953" in my first post.

I think it's a foreign photo. Some of the late '12s had horns like that, but it's the crank handle that puzzles me.

That screen shot is from the 1953 motion picture "The American Road" narrated by Raymond Massey.

Larry,

As I said, it was filmed at the Ford Highland Park Plant. As others said, it was filmed in 1953. I'm certain they got a couple tiny details wrong.

OK then.
What's the back story to the making of the film?
Where did the parts come from to assemble the cars?
Were they provided by enthusiasts?
Do the cars still exist today?
It's just interesting because everything looks "new"
There may be a few inaccuracies but still very entertaining.

David

1953 = 50th anniversary of Ford Motor Co.

Most likely one of the reasons the film was made.
