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.
Rob, Ford had a great car for the time. Priced right and fast and fun. Win - Win Scott
Rob,With all the usable power of the six Henry proved there was no need for more gears and i think he proved it more than 15,000 000 times with even less power.Be safe flying two machines at once!! Bud.
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.
