Here's an accessory to keep the car warmer by stopping drafts from the open pedal slots. These are pretty road kill from over 80 years of hanging out folded in the box. I bought a set of new repops of these and found them to be to thick and bulky when installed. These original ones look like they would fit alot closer to the pedals and look cleaner when installed.

Is the one for the emergency brake really that tall? Oh, if they only quit using so much salt on the 12+ inches we received last night. Took over an hour to clean up the driveway.

In all the freezing weather I've driven in the Speedster with no pedal pants, my feet never got cold.

One of the Durkee-Atwood buildings still survives in Minneapolis - it has been converted to lofts.

This one was a little tougher! Nothing under the names
used on the product or packaging was of any search use, so
I assume the patents mentioned by date only, were licensed
for use by Durkee-Atwood and not assigned to them.
Here are 2 patents each matching the month and year
of issue as shown on the packaging (Jun 1913 and Oct 1916).
Both seem like possible matches.

G.W. Dunham
Patent number: 1065668
Filing date: Dec 2, 1910
Issue date: Jun 24, 1913
http://tinyurl.com/yeed7e3

C.W. Small
Patent number: 1202441
Filing date: Jan 22, 1916
Issue date: Oct 24, 1916
http://tinyurl.com/yhl4or4

In June of 1913 there would have been 4 possible issue dates, 3, 10, 17 and 30.
In October 1916 there would have been 5 possible issue dates, 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31.

Regards
Art

Whoops - the possible dates for June should read 3, 10, 17 and 24.

That is slick idea. I could sure use those in the summer in my '13 RHD. It gets pretty warm with the exhaust pipe going under/past the pedals. I need to make a set for myself.

Les, an old sheep skin with slits cut in works well too (especially in summer to keep the hot air out)
Cheers

Adrian: Sounds like pulling the wool over on your fliver to me! I couldn't resist adding that.

I suspect that old sheepskin is more common where you live. I suppose a person could brand Ford on it and call it a "original accessory". Do you put it hair side up in the winter and hair side down in the summer?
