Ford renews search for the punch bowl won in the race that helped kickstart the company – Daniel Strohl Hemmings
As those of you who are kind enough to reads this blog will know I’m an early Ford history buff, so of course this article from Daniel Strohl as Hemmings was right in my wheelhouse!
The punch bowl that formed the winning prize in the famous Detroit Driving Club hosted race won by Henry Ford in 1901 has been missing since around 1951 after the death of Clara Ford in 1950 when it sold for $70.
