FJ - Dodge Brothers made the first 4 and 6 cylinder engines for Ford Motor Company - Imagine If ....

Post by FreighTer Jim » Mon Feb 17, 2020 8:42 am

Imagine if Henry Ford didn’t force The Dodge Brothers off the BOD of Ford Motor Company ... 🧐

Part of the journey of getting The Friendship Ford 1904 Model B running again ( yes KD got it running on all four cylinders ) is the opportunity and motivation to re-examine history.

For those interested - the transmission is back in the car - the brakes and linkage(s) have to be checked & adjusted - then the car should hopefully drive.

This is the only acknowledged 1904/1905 Ford Model B known to exist as close to original when it was assembled at The Piquette Plant.
