hi all I'm looking to come firm a engine number and year ,I sure the engine is a 1911..its a early in the year engine ... the numbers are 111577. I'm I right in saying its a 11 year engine . also can I get some ideas for a paint scheme fenders are black stuck on the body not mad about red.
That's a late april 1912 engine number. Do you have any patent plate on the car? it should have a number some thousands from the engine number if they came together from Ford.
All Ford cars were painted a very dark blue in 1912 (OK, except for a few delivery cars)
Most had black fenders, but some originals have been seen with blue fenders.
Pinstriping was done in French grey. http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/257047/275589.html?1331894915
