It has to be authentic since it says so right on it. I think that if you look close you will notice that the upholstery leather is not correct. :-)

Maybe the water in the radiator was around in 1896...

The description from the ad:


"I have a 1896 ford car . It starts right up and drives. It is in very good condition. Need gone asap."

If that vehicle was here I would also want it gone asap.

Too bad this wasn't for sale in time to register it for the Old Car Festival.

Well, at least the body can be used to help heat your home.

Since we're discussing fantasy cars, I think I would rather have this 1885 Delorean.

Awesome restoration. Probably took decades tracking down the correct parts.

How come no pictures of the engine?

Don't get to upset folks....I might try to sell that guy my ocean front property in Arizona.

1896 should be 1986?
Ford should be Dorf?
Wondering if it has a water pump.
Looks like fun!

I'll side along the lines of Dallas. While it may or not be a genuine misrepresentation by the seller, it's clearly no Ford product. Rebodied, w/o fenders and running boards, it could make a pretty cool swap meet buggy/parts hauler :-)

With a fresh coat of paint to cover all the Oxen Schizen it might be ok?

Its pretty obvious what its not, but what IS it...
At least the rear axle and 'diff' look intriguing.

Oxen schizen? Now, that's funny right there.

I do wonder what the seller thinks it is. I have looked at several '40s/'50s buggies and home-made horseless carriages that people believed were the real thing because uncle so-and-so said so.
The description doesn't really have the flavor of that sort of passion. Maybe someone figured it out?

Too many people today don't know a new commemorative by franklin mint from genuine historic treasure.

I would want it gone asap too.

I didn't know they had cup holders in 1896. I learn more and more things every day!!

I have an 1897 Olds Trap....One in the Smithsonian, one in the Olds Museum, and mine. Shucks I'd let it go for $25,000. And mine has 2 engines....

The above posted in fun....

Looks to have been built using one of the Popular Mechanics set of plans sold in the 1970's and earlier. Someplace I have a set for the Dulton(sp ?) that was kinda based on the curved dash Old's that had a diffy sorta like that one.
