The date on that ad was good information.  Some of the sources I've read show the Jaques version coming after the Jaques-Frazer tractor was done with production.  If it was being sold in January of '48 it had to be simultaneous or earlier than the Model T.

I was thinking the exact same thing concerning the dates that the Jaques-Frazer and the Mighty Mite were produced .  You're right: the date on this ad doesn't really work with some of the other things that I've read either.  I guess that makes this ad another piece of the puzzle.

I don't have any other ads, unfortunately.  I've owned a couple others over the years, but I gave them away to different people I've met, and at the time I didn't have a scanner to scan them in before I gave them away.  I do enjoy them though and would like to pick up more of them.  I love the images.
