is a wonderfully old and original Ford Motor Company invoice for the sale of a Model T Runabout, fully equipped, including freight, gas and oil, for a total of $507.30...my goodness, they sell shoes for more than that today. The car was delivered on May 15, 1913 to a Claude Rader of 507 Studio Bldg., in Kansas City, Missouri. The motor number of the car was 227881, and the car number was 194562...just imagine if that car still exists today. Amazingly, I was able to locate information about that person on the internet (please see research below). The man was a violinist, and although I am not able to confirm it, he may have been a African America musician.

nice, but with folds and minor, unobtrusive tattering, otherwise moderate wear and patina

Ebay now does not allow a seller to solicit payment using Western Union Money Transfers or cash. I would be happy to ship to foreign countries, and have done so many times in the past. However, I DO NOT use PayPal. Thus,
