Don,

You might want to post this in the Classified section if you're selling it.

I will buy it from you to donate it to the Bruce McCalley Library and Research Center in Richmond, Indiana.
Or you could donate it and save me $400? :-)
Please email me at modeltcoilsatwindstreamdotnet.

Thanks Ron, that's a nice thing to do and a very nice piece of literature! I see that it's mailed from Ford Motor Company but from Troy, NY.

I wondered about that too.
Notice it is addressed in pencil. Manlius is not far from Troy, NY.
Perhaps these postcards were distributed/mailed from the regional dealership network who would have had a better sense of viable prospects??

That has to be one of the few examples that has survived after over a 100 years!
That ought to be put in a double sided glass or plexi glass frame of some kind to preserve it. Continued touching it with bare hands isn't good for old paper. I have some post cards from the turn of the century that My Grandmother left the family and some have begun to deteoriate from to much handling over the years.
Not meaning to offend anyone.

Excellent suggestion.
Several of the original document contributions I made to help establish the Bruce McCalley Library and Research Center were encapsulated in UV protective glass to prevent further deterioration. I will do the same with this 110 year old post card.

Well, let's all remember that this is not a photo of a car, but an artist's misconception...so I'm not sure one can use it as a detail guideline...what a great piece, and great generosity by Ron...
