Found this interesting add. You get to share in the profit if enough cars are sold.

The rebate was for all models, not just the Coupelet.

My Great Grandpa bought a Touring in October 1914 and received a $50 rebate. :-)

Just going by memory, but wasn't 1914 the year that the 'experts' said that Ford would be bankrupt?

The $5 day, plus the $50 rebate per car suggested that Henry had overstepped possibilities.

As it turned out, IIRC, the overall sales were in the region of 400,000 and a small but worthwhile profit was achieved.

Does anybody out there have the original paper work on the $50 dollar rebate. We own the touring Derek has mentioned above and have the original bill of sale and pictures of the dealership were it was purchased. It would be great to add that to our collection even it was a photo copy.

This article tells a little about the check issuing process, and a description of the check itself. It would be great to find a copy of the original refund check:

Rob, thanks for the info. We have an envelope from Ford Motor Company that we believed the $50 dollar rebate came in. It is dated Sep 8 1915 and your story is dated Sep 6 1915, so our guess is maybe wright? We keep the original Bill of Sale in that envelope. Now Derek will you please copy Rob's info being I don't know how?
