I'm not sure of the make of auto is but the owner has pulled the floorboards out at the right location, at church!

I have pulled the plugs at church when I flooded my '14 one time years ago except I had an audience.



It's at:

Looks like a "torpedo" style runabout and it seems to have one of those early wood framed windshields. The date was indicated as ca. 1912.

We haven't had too many Ford photos on Shorpy lately but curious about what this one is.

Bill is correct. I believe it is a 1908 Gentleman's Roadster with a different type of rear seat and an accessory windshield. As I recall that was the only year that cowl was used.

Richard,

You are correct about the cowl. I have a barn fresh 1908 roadster without the windshield.

just sayin'

REO's are truly wonderful. I have dreamed of having one since my good friend Joe found a chassis and some sheet metal in 1967. He found a "Maxwell or something" hood that might work. He was delighted when we placed the hood on the chassis and found matching bullet holes in the adjacent fender. He was able to transform his into the beautiful red one in the picture. He let me make the front sheet for the hood and cover his top. I finally had to settle for a 2-cyl Buick but I am recovering from the disappointment. I'd love to see the barn fresh one.
