Hm. 1914 seven passenger touring !
No more room on the seat just kneel on the floor.
I wonder how far you would get today driving with a car overloaded like that.
You can barely make out the "brackets" hanging over the edge of the rear door for a "jump seat" - I have one but I'd say it was for a child.
The fellow could read a blue print! Are those side lamps strange to only me?
Not 1914 standard issue side lamps, that's for sure Bud.
Interesting, in a lot of these old photos the tires are half flat. If they ran them like that, no wonder they had so many flats back then. Maybe horse shoe nails weren't to blame for most of them.
Thanks Steve I never thought of a jump seat and now when I look closer I think I can see brackets on the door.
a repost but my '14 Speedster in '68
Certainly not Ford issued sidelamps. Do have a slight look about them reminding me of the rare (?) Victor 2 taillight ?
While these are not those this shows some lamps were made for the earlier mounting brackets.
A Town Car was sold as a 7 passenger car,
32 in the front, 3 on back seat 2 on the jump seats.
Common load in my Town Car over the years.
But seven is not a load what about this (see last paragraph) from a Ford dealer column in a local paper in 1926.
Meant to say 2 in the front, 3 in back seat 2 in jump seat in back.
This could be the type of jump seat which Steve discerned hanging on the right rear door.
That's the one hanging in my '14 Touring - I couldn't find the photo - thanks !
That's what I'm here for.
Very interesting photo. Thank you! I work with old photo restoration in https://damagedphotorestoration.com so I am interesting in photo like this)
