1931 Ford roadster

I purchased a 1931 Ford roadster from Mr Carole Fader in 1974.
I still have this old roadster today! It is undergoing a major
restoration. We value it very much and all the stories that I
have heard about it during its many years in Ketchikan. It was
shipped to Ketchikan NEW in 1931 to the LIBBY OAKSMITH FORD DEALERSHIP
THERE IN TOWN, or so I have been told. Prior to 1974, the old
Model A had always been in Ketchikan.
If anyone can share a memory or may recall seeing this old Ford
around town or remember it in a parage as Fader used it for carrying
political types in parades when they visited town, I would most
enjoy hearing from you. May I say a good word about Mr Fader
who I purchased the car from. He was most honest and forthright
in how he presented the car. I wonder about any of the Fader
family still in Ketchikan. I presume Mr Fader is not alive today?
I have not yet read all of the information contained in this
web site but, look forward to doing so. THE HISTORIC CONTENT
OF THIS WEBSITE IS MOST IMPRESIVE. I LOOK FORWARD TO LEARNING
I also look foreward to a response
from you and any of the good folks of Ketchikan AK.
