Yes, that is a great photo of a Ford "Knocked Down Kit". They built almost 1900 of these kits and they were shipped by rail and by truck to Douglas in Tulsa and to the plants in Fort Worth and Dallas to keep production rolling.

I see the Tulsa Douglas plant every day--it's just south of the hangar where I work and I can see the huge doors where the finished airplanes came out if I look there! The kits came in the south end from the railyard and were assembled and came out the north end. Now the Douglas plant is used to build school buses.
