Here is a photo from my grandfathers collection. Sunnyside, Washington. It's a polo tournament.
I'm waiting to hear what year this car is!
Allan from down under.
Assuming the guy in the car is your grandfather I suppose he had his kid(s) already or you might not be here.
It looks like a high radiator and I don't see a coil box on the engine, so maybe a 1925? Of course, it could easily be a "put together" using parts from several years.
I think i see leather straps on the front axle just like Mark's T . Ken
We do like old photos. If the front spring/motor mount is correct for that car it is 1921 or before. The round gas tank and low radiator would be '17 to '23.
We have seen some of these "Polo" cars before. They are very interesting.
I have the book your Grand Father penned. A fantastic insight into the Ford Dealership he had in the Model T era. I bought the book when it was first advertised in the Vintage Ford magazine, back in the 1970's.

Yes!! We love old photos. They sure lowered the steering column on that T. Dating the chassis, doubtless it's from before Dr. Sulk developed the polo vaccine.
I would love to have a pair of coveralls like the guy on the left has.
How about a picture of your dad's polo car?
Say hello to him for me.
Round fellow wheels​ and over axle wishbone. Clues all point to 1917 if everything was from the same car.
Note the coveralls on the fellow on the left:

What a fun book to read. I enjoyed it greatly.Really interesting stories and very well written. Your Grandfather was a very interesting person..Cheers, John in Nova Scotia
Not my grandfather in the picture. He owned the dealership that sponsored the tournament during Ford days.
That is a fantastic book. I think I've read it more than a dozen times.
I'll try to get a pic of my dads polo car next time I'm in town.
Brian I just finished reading your grandfathers book and I was wondering do you have any pictures of his logo Reasoning Ross?
