Happy new year to all. The postcard below is on ebay. It's date stamped 1912 and shows some great detail of a 1912 Touring Car including striping. What is really interesting though is the tool roll on the fender.

Too bad it's not an original tool roll, nor some of the tools!

Whaddya mean "too bad" ??? Is that some sort of purist arrogance attitude, or something
else ? Like it's somehow less cool that those neat old tools and roll weren't used by Henry
himself ?

I guess I should junk my truck because it no longer has original paint, tires, ... hell the air in
the tires ain't even original !

It's unlikely that the tools in the tool bag were even used by the Ford Motor Company. Those tools in the bag were put there to get the job done by the owner, not necessarily same as used on an assembly line.

If you refer to the parts book that photo came from, it mentions which tools were included with the car.

Burger, I think what Larry meant was that it's too bad FOR US that it's not an original; otherwise, we could see what a nearly new one looked like.

Really like that photo Andrew.

Did this close-up of the tools. Looks like screwdriver handle is painted black. The early plug wrench as forged. Pliers with tip on handle like a screwdriver too.

Other items, 2 tire tools, the # 1917 small open end wrench, early hub cap wrench, a linesman pliers, and what looks like a small wood handle chisel.

Fun!

Just because ford supplied the tools doesn’t mean they were the best for the job. I would prefer the socket for removing and installing spark plugs vs an open end wrench. I know people today that have a pristine set of ford tools but they are just for show when they actually work on their "T's" they go to their modern tools for efficiency :-)

I have seen one other tool roll like the one on the post card. It was for sale several years ago and I saved the picture. Les

anyone notice the 2339 stewart swivel wrench? Guess the 1912's had an 1800 swivel instead of the 1913 model
