White tires on a 24? Blasphemy :-)

And what about the colour of the engine (here we go again)? It looks like a staged publicity photo. Tires and engine painted white so they stand out.

Probably a special run. Photos with Henry & Edsel posing with the Quad & the T show white tires too. A later pic with movie cowboy William S Hart shows black tires.

Grey??? Not white. It would show up very light in the photos.

Look at the front drivers side tire. Black showing in the tread grooves, uneven white on the inner sidewall, black showing close to the rim. Clearly these are black tires painted white. The engine too.

And where is the car now?

Ah Rob

That is a 1926 engine, Improved car.

Note the pedals, and braces to the hogshead bolts to block.

Bet that many of the old timers got to stamp that engine, its #15,000,000.


Note the black starter motor and no hole in the block for throttle rod.



Here is #10,000,000


Same white like paint, but white starter, and hole in the block.

Dan,
Thank you for the clarification. I was only 5,000,000 off.

:-)

Think that engine stand/dolly is beefy enough?

There is a picture of the eight men who each stamped a number on page 117 of Tin Lizzie by Stern.Bud.
