Remember the photo of the Ford Model T climbing the Courthouse steps? I think this might be one better!

Alright...now I'd be particularly impressed if someone can shout off the year on that one considering the angle of the photograph. My knowledge would guess 13-16 but I can't see enough of the details I know to look for to determine anything more than that.

Wayne, I believe back then they were called the Roadsters.

Looks like a parts store on the ground floor so maybe an advertising gimmick?

1914 by the looks of the windshield support rods.

The photo says it's from Litchfield Michigan.
Is that a clue?

Depressed by the fact that the little Ford lost the big race to the Chevy he decided to end it all!

Must have jumped, or been talked down. Not there anymore!

Well at least the building is still there, and in pretty decent shape too. Both nice pics guys. As for the car, RIP. Had to be a hard landing.

Chris, we must have been workin' the keyboards at the same time :-) You're too fast!

Looks like the building has an antique store now. I agree with Dennis on the year of the car.

Not there a friend of mine owns the building oddly enough though he owns a 15 roadster and a 16 touring. I lived a block from there for several years. Now I drive by that corner every day on my way to work and live about 18 miles from that corner.

Mark do you know if there is a way up there from the back that they might have used to get the car up there?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Dennis Henrichs on Tuesday, February 14, 2017 - 02:59 am:

They had Fred Macmurray drive it up there.

With Help from Nancy Olson?

Chris and Ed
How did you find the current picture of the building?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Mark Eyre on Tuesday, February 14, 2017 - 01:37 pm:

Went by there again this morning and there is no way to get it up there. It had to be a huge amount of tugging and heavy lifting.

Another Ford climbing the Capital steps. 25 or so years later . . .

Someone said Litchfield, Michigan, so I just "went" there on Google and "looked around". Google Earth view will give you a pretty good idea of what part of town is the old part, then you can cruise around in StreetView to find the particular building. Sometimes it's easier than others.

Robert,
that is a Willys Quad, not a Ford GPW.

(Odd ball, angular front fenders and headlights mounted between those fenders and grille, instead of behind the grille).

Thanks Chris

If it is an antique store that Model T is probably in various parts inside the store for sale?
