Here's a very nice lady in Florida celebrating her 110th birthday and talking about how she got married at 16 in 1922 and her husband drove a Ford Roadster :-)

Roger: There is one right here on this forum, me. I bought a 1913 Roadster out of a closed Ford Dealer in South Ga. The story was that it was the first car they got from Ford when they opened the Dealership in 1913. They never sold it, therefore I am the Original Owner? Hard to prove, but makes a good tale. :-) Dan

Dan: I usually have boots on by now, you know 12 or 13in tall boots, as I don't like it running over the top! Thank you

Guys: Like I said, can not prove it. Car was in the showroom for around 70 years. Story told at the auction was the owner of dealership never sold it. Here is picture of car in showroom.


And it is a Wide Track.

Those are fancy looking accessory fenders, not later T versions.

Derek is right, they are aftermarket fenders. Car is a really a early 14. Has 14 body, but casting date and engine number is late 13. Has 2pc DS, no ears on rear of frame, screw in freeze plugs, ect. When to the auction looking for T parts or tools. Did find a T wheel in the attic, they put it with the car. Was a neat place, the parts department was 1920 style still. With the counters and parts bins. Dan
