On this date in 1895 patent attorney George Selden filed for a patent for his "Road Engine" He stretched out the process for 16 years from 1879 to 1895.

And Henry didn't kowtow to the 'machine' of monopoly that was the ALAM!

He was there in 1909 showing the NEW Model T, and in defiance of Selden too!

Yes,NO,and None of the above? When Henry tied to join ALAM would not let him because they considered Ford a mear assemblier ?? Makes one wonder what the world be if they had let him in? Bud.

Yes and on the day of the trial Selden brought his machine to the courthouse on a huge horse drawn wagon They unloaded the wagon and could not get it to run. In the meantime Ford had several young children giving rides around the block in Model T Fords. The judge threw the case out court on the steps and didn't bother to hold a trial inside of the courthouse.

We worked on 3 WWI Liberty trucks.
One of them was a White and I THINK it was the White that made mention of several Selden patents on the build tag.

USA truck
