Do my eyes deceive me or is this an electric Model T Ford?

Looks like Ford himself was a bit of a sparky... http://www.flickr.com/photos/fordmotorcompany/3177571945/

The car in the first post is "Ford Electric Car No. 2" which was completed on June 10, 1914.

It's top speed was 17 mph and its longest run over average roads and grades, completed at a crawl, was 59.1 miles.

For further details regarding Ford's electric car endeavors, read the book "Taking Charge, The Electric Automobile in America" by Michael Brian Schiffer.

The man in the photo driving the electric car is Fred Allison. Here is another shot of him driving an electric car.

Allison is credited with designing the FA (Fred Allison)/Liberty Starting and Lighting System adopted for the Model T in late 1918.

Is the coupe in the photo link above, mounted on the chassis that Mr Allison is on that Ron posted above? Is that Henry on the far right hand side of the picture?
