Alemite - Zerk for Fords old advertising post card.

Post by dobro1956 » Sun Jan 27, 2019 10:40 pm

I have always wondered why there is so little advertising trying to sell Alemite-Zerk fittings for Model Ts as aftermarket items. Even though they were around for some time during the T era. They became standard equipment on the Model As, and sometimes show up on Model Ts put on by previous owners thru the years. But again very little advertising targeting Model T owners.

I just acquired this advertising Alemite post card, with a model T in it. The only Alemite/Model T specific item I have found. I know there are probably other items out there but this is a first for my collection ... :D :D

Any idea what year the card was printed? To me "zerk" fittings are superior to what came installed on the car so I have tucked a few away on my car.

The "Artist's" rendition on the card shows the forged "L" front shackles & r.r. mounted below the perch so somewhere between '19 & '23 according to the Encyclopedia so assume it to be in that era.
