In 1906, Ford introduced two vehicles, a low-priced and simple four-cylinder Model N, and the six-cylinder Model K. The Model K was large and luxurious and weighed in at 2,500 lb curb weight and had a wheelbase of 114-inches (it was increased to 120-inches for 1907-1908 model). This was the first Ford to feature a six-cylinder powerplant.
It is believed that the first public showing of the Model K was at the 1906 American Motor Car Manufacturer's Association (AMCMA) Show held at the 69th regiment Armory, Lexington Avenue and 25th Street, New York in mid-January of 1906. Total Ford production for the model year was 8,828 units.
The Model K was available in either a Five-Passenger Touring car or sporty Runabout called the 640.
This Model K was part of the Clyde Ensor, Sr. Collection and formerly part of the Harrah's Collection in Nevada. Other noted owners included Elmer Bemis and Warren Anthony. This Touring car is one of just 25 known to exist.
This Touring Car is painted in a combination of dark blue with cream pin-striping, black interior, and black canvas top. Brass trim is included in the radiator, lights, cowl, horn, brake lever, gear shift handle, wheel hubs and steering column. There is black canvas top and is lined with red cloth.
In 2010, this car was offered for sale at the 'Sports & Classics of Monterey' presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $275,000 - $375,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $192,500 inclusive of buyer's premium.
