1909 Roadster questions

Post by Alex Dragone » Thu Nov 07, 2019 9:04 pm

Here are a couple of questions pertaining to 1909-10 runabouts:
#1: Did all roadsters come with a mother-in-law seat on the rear toolbox? If not, than does anyone have any period photos of one without the seat?

#2: Does anyone know what was used as a latch for the rear toolbox (under the mother-in-law seat) on the 09-10 roadster? So exactly what held the lid down or held it from opening?

Any help is appreciated!

Re: 1909 Runabout questions

I can help on the first question.
Ford literature shows no Runabout for 1909/10 but had the mother inlaw seat on the fully equipped Roadster in 1909/10.
1911 Runabout had a fuel tank on the back and in 1912 called the Torpedo Runabout with the tank. Roadsters still with or with out the mother inlaw seat.
