Fredrick Williams of Forestville, R.I., offered his Model K touring car for sale, because he had bought another car....

A Ford Model K Roadster........(been there, done that...)



The newspaper published an article about Mr. William's buying a large touring car in 1906:


And a separate article about William's purchase of the Model K Roadster:



Our Model K Roadster also came from Rhode Island, and it was the second Model K owned by the family who bought it. However, this is a different owner. I'm sometimes surprised to learn that 1906 Model K owners bought 1907 and 1908 Model K. However, all things considered, it probably shouldn't surprise. Ford's had a simple transmission, were inexpensive compared with similar horsepower and features of competitors, and had a great reputation.

Interesting to see how they spelled "gasolene". I wonder how long and what geographic areas used that spelling? A quick Google search provided no results

Gasolene, that's the English way of spelling it.
