The 1919 item in this week’s Times Past reporting the delivery of four Ford touring cars and three trucks by the late S. F. Amyx reminded us of this photo of other early Ford automobiles that were offered for sale at Amyx Auto, which operated on the Gainesville square. The photo, from the collection of Susan Amyx Ault, is reprinted from the December 2012 edition of the Old Mill Run. The photo accompanied a 1991 story by Becky Bell that commemorated Amyx Auto’s 75th anniversary. The story quoted the late Ralph Amyx saying a Ford roadster sold for $325 100 years ago, and a touring car sold for $360-$375. Ralph, one of Amyx Auto founder S. F. Amyx’s six sons, became the company’s manager in 1934 and its owner in 1952 following his father’s death. He was succeeded by his son, Donald, in 1980. The business closed in 2002.
