I am pretty sure that is the 1906 model K that Rob Heyen, Kim Dobbins, and someone else got out of a collection and put onto the Lansing to Dearborn Run and OCF last year. They had four Model Ks together and driven for the first time in nobody knows how long! They said it would be for sale soon after.

I believe (but am not certain) that Tim Kelly's K was a 1907. This one appears to be a 1906. A couple inches shorter wheelbase, and "tulip" (European) style body. Tim Kelly's had the '07/'08 style body, which had straighter lines than the one shown above.

Yes, it's the 1906 Kim, Dean Yoder and I callaborated on. Dean got it up and running, and he and Kim took it through the New London to New Brighton tour and Old Car Festival. The motor and drive train are in great shape with an older reproduction body. Bruce Van Sloun restored the original 1906 Holley Magneto, making this the only running 06 with an original Holley magneto.

Our goal is to find the right caretaker who will keep it on the road. Below is a link showing Kim driving with Dean riding at last years OCF, with the other three Model K st the pass in review:

Great video Rob, that's the first time I've seen that. Hope the K finds a good home. That was a great experience getting all 4 K's together. I'm still planing on getting the model B Ford ready for NLNB this year.
