I though it was an interesting car that one doesn't normally see on eBay. Not mine.

Looks like a 1907 Model R in the photos.

A Model S - introduced in the fall of 1907 as a 1908 model- would have splash shields and a mother in law seat. Like this:

It looks like to me it has a small body like the Model N . The the S Runabout had the same body as the N but with Model R running boards and finders .This car my be a Model S Runabout with Model S Roadster running boards and finders. Or a Model N with the same. Do your home work before bidding .Great car ether way I would love to have it.

The "Model S" listed for sale:



The body appears to be N, S Runabout or R Runabout. However, the car has the Model N exhaust pressure oiler, instead of the McCord mechanical oiler R and S models came equipped with.

Model R Runabout:



Model S Runabout:



The fenders and running board resemble the S Roadster posted by Royce. Just because the fenders may be incorrect is not always an indicator a car is assembled or "made up."

This photo still appears on the website "American Automobiles" and is incorrectly listed as a Ford Model S. It's in fact a Model N with aftermarket rumble seat and fenders-running board package. The photo was taken in 1925:

For those that cannot afford this nicely restored (if questionably correct) Ford are interested? There has also been a NRS project pile on eBad (about a day to go and reaching reserve). Even though it is nearby me, I have decided that I cannot go after it. But if a potential buyer may need a hand with it? I could maybe help a little?
Disclaimer, I do not claim to be an expert on the NRS Fords, and am saving this thread to my bookmark file for future reference.

Thanks Rob and all for the additional information.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
