Great video, enjoyed watching, so many workers and the different body styles. Had to laugh at the comment " henry ford always said you could have any color you want as long as it's black" , curious to know when color was actually introduced to automobiles back then now, will have to do some searching on that, but again thanks for the link back in time TBE .

By-the-way! Did you happen to observe that some of the autos being driven out the door were driven on the "RIGHT" side??? I surmised from this that they were for export to countries that drove on the opposite side of the road........check it out...... for your nice comments about the link.....lucky I ran across it.....:..



I was making a quick search to try to determine when the paint was changed from "Black" to other colors and ran across this link which has information you may want to be aware of........click and watch the short "video" explaining paint matching, etc.

This old car, a 1909 EMF, is American made and is the predecessor in a way to the out of production Studebaker automobile, also American made. But it was not a standarization left hand drive until later, (mid 20's) both with the EMF (nicknamed, every morning fix) and Fords or any US manufactured car.
