Here ia a photo of a "1911" torpedo in a museum in Long Lake MN. It is a private collection of about 250 cars with perhaps a 100 are Fords. Most are 1932 to 1950s. About 20 32 Fords including a nice B400 Model 19 V8. There are two Model T Fords. A "factory" 1927 pickup and a "1911" Torpedo. Most of this example seems to be reproduction. The steering column appears correct. All the brass are new reproductions. The radiator has "made in USA" on it which is not correct for 1911. The gas tank is the 1912 style, which is the style available new. The body looks new as do the top irons and the fenders. The rear end is large drum and the wire wheels 1926-27.It is a nice looking car. I spoke to them about the auto and they stated it was mainly for display and as an example of an early Ford.
That is "Model 18" V8 for the 1932 B400.
Plus it is an open runabout not a Torpedo. Torpedoes have doors.
PLUS It is an open runabout (no doors) not a Torpedo anyway
Darel, what is the car seen behind the 1911 Ford?
It too looks Fordish.
Herb IT looks like a car that Ford only built four of.They were beveled to be the prototype for the Model F . They had a touring body on a Model C chassis with running boards . I owned one of these cars . The person I bout the car from had a litter from H F Museum telling about these cars and were interested in buying this car at the time of the litter. The body at the time I bout the was missing the back set ,but I was able to track down the back set to put back on the car .I sold the car in 2000. I have a few pictures of the car and the body in this picture look to be the same.
Can you put a picture on here?
Definatly a open runabout.
