I see that batteries were expensive @ $16.50 I can almost hear "that's outrageous what are they made of ,Gold?" :-)

It's the Midas touch, how to turn lead into gold. :-)

The problem I'm having with this picture is, I see the parts I need for m Decker locking steering wheel and the time machine is down.

check out the Fordson tractor cast iron toy in the left hand display case.

I just wish this dealership's parts department was right next door to my shop - with the stock intact!

Wishfully thinking,

Trent Boggess

My shop is wired like that. Drives the City electrical inspectors crazy, but it is SO cool ! :-)

What is the cylindrical container on the counter? I see a Ford script on it.

It appears to be an oversized tire repair tin, Keith.

An interesting thing is the large roll of paper that's on the end of the counter. By the looks of the pic the area in front of the large paper roll was pretty clean. Did this Ford dealership use paper to wrap the items in when they were sold?
What else would the large sheets of paper be used for.

John
That is what I thought too. Then it just hit me, maybe to put under oily greasy parts that were brought in to the store.

GREAT PHOTO! Look at the wheels next to the office on the top shelf they are packed in a create just like was recently discussed on the forum.

Thanks Jay for posting the photos that you find. It gives us a glimpse back in time to how shops were stocked and run. Looks like some knob and tube wiring on the roof joists. This one is cool:-)

I'll go along with Trent! It's a real Ford parts department. Look at the keyboard, and the stack of hand windshield wipers in the display case.

Looks like the "wheel" closest to the keyboard is actually a display of a "rim expander" tool for tire work, displayed inside a wheel rim.

Hmmm,....and then again, the diameter doesn't look big enough to be a wheel rim. Maybe it's two steering wheels, displayed one on top of the other, hanging on the one peg. Hard to tell.....?

OK, I'll take 3 of these, 4 of those, two of them there, and here's my wish list. There's my credit card machine. Chip or slide?.....J.
