I wonder if the tank on the cowl is a fuel tank and, if it is, why was it necessary to put it there?
I believe that photo originally appeared in Ford Times with a corresponding article or at least a caption.
The original negative is probably in the Benson Center in Dearborn.
Looks like the tank is for topping off the radiator when needed. A good idea to carry extra water when you are in the desert.
It looks like that might be a water tank.
Ah ha! Water tank. Maybe I need a little more coffee.
Right hand and pushing down on the crank handle? That seems like a disaster waiting for the guy in front to get his chin juust a lllittle closer...
What is with the garden gnome on the roof?
The same photo is in Tin Lizzie by Stern and they also the use of the crank.Bud.
By the look on his face I think that's what the guy behind the wheel is waiting for!
Looks like a Kalamazoo trailer, and I think the T wheels are also Kalamazoo.
I think this photo was taken in Florida back in the first(?) land boom. The thing on the roof is one of those cops with the spinning arms. Barrowed from ebay for illustrations only.
If he is spinning the motor on magneto would not be the same as starting on battery so kick back not the same issue.
