Would the spare tire carrier on the rear of a 25 roadster been an option? If so does anyone have a picture of the alternative tail light/license bracket? thanks
No, not optional equipment. The car would have had a spare carrier from the factory.
The loss leader $260 non electric runabout with non demountable wheels wouldn't have had any spare tire carrier - it would have the sideways mounted Ford - O kerosene tail light, but I haven't got any picture of the proper bracket.
Here are some pics of the non starter loss leader tail light bracket for the Ford-O light. The car should also have kerosene side lights if it is a non starter, as well as a blocked off ammeter hole in the switch plate. The starter and generator holes will also have block off plates.
