Neat photo postcard with a lamb on the hood. Good view of a 1913/14 front end. You can see, faintly, through the windshield it has the 14 style rods, but it has the bent/formed 13 style lamp brackets and jeweled sidelamps.

That is exciting to see also. This shows the '12-'13-'14 Minn. plate very clearly. We saw this on a previous post. Black on Aluminum, no paint on the years.
Thanks
Rich

FWIW Minnesota used 3-year plates in '15-'17 Red on Aluminum and '18-'20 White on Black.
Photos that clear should be helpful to many.

I could tell you who owned the car if I could see the complete number.

On a side note, my grandmother moved to Fertile, MN when she remarried.

I could tell you who owned the goat if it had it's 'Property Identification Coded eartag. Having drooping ears that long it is more likely a kid than a lamb.

Whoops! I should know better since I've raised goats before. So thats embarrassing. Yes, not a lamb. However, in my defense, I did not pay too much attention to the critter in the pic! I was more interested in hardware. haha!

Is that dash painted black? Sure looks like it.

I don't think so Bill. You can see some contrast between it and the hood former.

Great photo, thank you for sharing. I really like the kid, what a great auto accessory, wish I had one. Allen, won't that be a much better investment then buying a $5,000 riding lawn mower?

Happy motoring

The acetylene gas generator is the Victor "hook" type pointer. The lamps must be Corcoran or Victor. The headlamps are both left hand.

The photographer shows upside down in the Mangin mirror of the headlamps.

Spot on John! While I was typing.

Really neat, I enlarged & rotated the driver side headlamp and you can see that the little girl is patiently waiting for dad to take the picture so she can go get her pet Kidd

Ken good catch, they look like Victors because of the bonnets and bezel. Also the sidelights are Victors based on the caps and oil fonts.

My guess(s) on the plate number is 54106.... or 34106

OK Erik, let's see some possibilities.

The dash certainly is not shiny varnish.

When are the baaaa-d jokes going to start about the lamb?

Maybe no one wants to "get your goat" by kidding around ?

If you mutton heads are going to start sheep shots or pulling the wool over our eyes, it is shearly a waste of time Wether you know it or knot.

Rich, trust ewe to come up with a flock of puns quicker than two shakes of a dead lamb's tail. We'll all have to band together to keep up with the yarns you can spin !

Arnold, that is one interesting variation of a radiator cap!


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Arnold on Friday, April 21, 2017 - 04:11 pm:

I have never given the radiator cap a second thought. It came on the car when I bought it. It's a stock radiator cap and a stock motor meter. How else would it be mounted?

Rich, it would be udder neglect not to dip into some dyed-in-the-wool humor for a quadrupedal, ruminant mammal. I'm sure we would take a fleecing if we didn't come up with a range of sheep puns.

Rich, thinking back, puns have always been a staple of our brand of humor. We don't want to hogget all, though. Maybe Dennis and his parakeet will contribute to the thread? That always cheers me up when I'm bummed out ! I gotta fold for now.

Ken:

As you indicated, it is a five digit plate which would be correct for a 1913 or 1914 Ford.

My father has a public directory which lists Minnesota 1912-13-14 registrations from January 1, 1912 through June 1, 1914.

I looked at every plate number that ended in 106. None of the Fords listed that had plate numbers X106 or XX106 were from Fertile.

The public directory ends at 53999. I would have to research the state ledger at the Minnesota Historical Society to look at the numbers that were issued from June through December 1914 to see if I could locate the car.

Also, there is the possibility that the car could have changed hands.

Erik,

Pretty amazing you can find that information. The front fenders are the "1913" style without beads on the apron so the car was built between July 1913 and May 1914.

It was hardly a year old when the kids got it!

Ken in Texas
