I just bought this after looking at it a month ago at a garage sale for 10 bucks after kicking myself in the rear for not buying it. I looked at all the old threads I could find it looks right but it is so small i am not sure. I went back and asked the guy if he still had the jack after he spent a hour digging in his garage he found it!

It looks very close but it should have FORD cast in the handle with a part number 8390. The usual price for a FORD jack at swap meets is $20 - $25. If it is really dirty and you can't see the FORD then maby $10

Similar style, but quite sure it is not Ford. I've never seen a Ford jack with the handle hollowed.

Meant to say 'hollowed like that'.

You do have a Model T jack but it is up to debate whether or not it would be considered original equipment or aftermarket. As far as I know, nobody has really studied the screw jacks.

My unrestored 1917 roadster came with an Ashland jack. The 1917 Rip Van Winkle touring also has an identical Ashland jack. Both cars were assembled in in Minneapolis and have serial numbers one month apart.

Your jack looks like a Eureka.

Who knows when "Ford" and the part number were included with the factory equipped jacks.

In my opinion, Ford was probably using jacks from a number of different vendors.
