Bob J. Asked me for the size of the rear rug on our 16 I thought I would post it. Well it's kind of rough with mouse damage it doesn't fit perfect hope the pictures help I can trace it on paper if that would help I don't think it's ever been out of car there is no wear on floor boards
Great pics Paul! I like the "crease" in your splash apron, some folks don't know they're supposed to be there! The body wood details are helpful too.
The Rip Van Winkle had a similar rug, but it only covered the wood floor boards. It definitely was not a cocoa mat.
David thanks for pointing out the crease is supposed to be there! I spent some time going from side to side wondering how both sides could have got bent the same! Here's a picture of the left one
Yep, factory crease! A neat detail that often gets "fixed" during restorations!
Interesting to see these original cars. Yes, I put your original price list of parts in the mail today! When is your car's 100th birthday?
Thanks Jeff your parts book is from 4-16 I have one coming from Kim that's 8-15 not sure which one is correct I don't know how often they were updated but I should be close! Our car has serial no 973687 cast date is 11-16-15 the body tag is 12-15 so I guess it is safe to say it is 100 years old! I am sure glad I got it running for my 98 year old uncle to drive it!
Paul, My touring is a little newer than yours, 12-10-15 (999,9XX) so they're probably almost twins! Mine, however did not survive intact; it was disassembled for restoration about 1960 and has been that way since (well, I am getting back together slowly). The guy who took it apart bought brass rims for the headlamps and sidelights to "correct it" even!(NO, they're not going on the car!)
Would love to see more detail photos of your car!
