Likely shown before but thought I'd post it again for anyone who missed it.

I've seen that car in person several times and many photos and videos but, never that actual photo so, thanks Gary for posting.

I have seen that one before. I don't know whether it is the real original Quadracycle? Or the re-creation made late in Henry's life for some of the museum displays. I am fairly sure (but NOT positive) that the photo was taken in the recreation of his shop for one of his earlier efforts at his museums (1930s).
Thank you for posting it! I always enjoy seeing the best ones again, and again.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Henry looks deep in thought almost like he is thinking about how he would have made changes in the Quadracycle.

I would bet he is thinking about how much the world had changed since the time he had to build his own car! In the three decades since, tens of millions of people bought new cars from his company, because his company made them available. Hundreds of millions of more people bought his cars used, and the cars of people that followed him, new and used.
I have often wondered if Henry ever really knew how much he personally changed the world?
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Wayne, I agree Henry Ford must have taken great pride in his accomplishments that had changed the world at this point in his life. However I wonder in this photo if he isn't wondering where he left his tea cup, what it was he needed to do this afternoon and how wrong that doctor must be that he saw the other day.

Or he is thinking how funny it is that no one found that 1.2 million I hid in the front gear box.

I think Henry is contemplating the upcoming storm of "global warming".

He has the radio on and Jerry Reid is playing Lord MR Ford What Have You Done!! Bud.

I believe this is taken in the reproduction of the Bagley Avenue workshop at Greenfield Village. I also think it is the original Quadricycle because George DeAngelis, the builder of the reproductions, didn't build the first one until 1963.
