Thanks to another forum member alerting me, we now own an original Ford Motor Company "24 Hour Record" pamphlet. I have a copy of the brochure, printed by "Floyd Clymer productions," but didn't think I would find an original.
In my opinion, this is one of, if not the most important early Ford racing victory. It's the first stock Ford record (Sweepstakes, 999 and the other early racers were not stock Ford cars, but racers built only for the track). The Ford record was made against the best cars of the period, including the 60 h.p. Thomas Flyer, considered one of the best early cars, and later winner of the New York to Paris race (1908).
Apparently this pamphlet was originally sent to, and stamped by "W. H. Hobbs Supplly Co." of Eau Claire, WI:
William H. Hobbs, owner of the company, sold several makes of automobiles between 1907 and 1913, according to this Wikipedia article:
The full brochure. I had to paste and cut (electronically) to make it more readable:
Rob, Go for it! This chapter, together with the rest of the Model K information you've collected
wull make a great book. Of course, it will also permanently dispell the idea that Henry Ford didn't like the K.
What Keith said!! I think a well written book that will stand the test of time is needed for those who have never had a ride in a model K!! As one of few the K made a believer of me!! Bud.
