Default 60-A photo

There is a photo of a bunch of people surrounding the new 1928 2-Window Fordor Sedan at one of the auto shows. I can not remember if Henry and Edsel are in it or not.

Just where is that photo?

Thanks.

Pluck

Is this the one that looks like an auto show or one from what looks to be manufacturing. There are several photos in the "The Ford Model A, As Henry Built It". It would help to have the photo or a link to it.

Is this link it?

Steve,

I think I recall seeing the image. I believe that it was supposed to be a photo lost to time until someone just happened upon the negative of the image. If Im thinking of the right one, there a clearing in front of the camera with people gathered around the other side of the car and to the right and left of the space, with someone in the driver and passenger seats. The driver had his arm hanging out the window with his hand up above the window slot. I think he might have had a cigar in his mouth. Does this sound right to you or am I way off?

Joshua

Well after a few hours of racking my brain and going through a few books...I found it!

It is in the book "The Legendary Model A Ford" by Peter Winnewiser, 2nd edition page 27.

Yahooooooo!
