In 1914, Huntsville’s first car dealer, J.E. Mosley, ordered 20 new cars to sell. At the beginning of that year, you could buy a Ford for $650, a price that dropped to $599 by the end of the year, and dropped further still in 1915, “bringing car ownership within reach of many people in Muskoka,” according to Huntsville: With Spirit and Resolve by Susan Pryke. In his ads, Mosley said, “there are only two kinds of cars – the Fords and can’t affords.” Mosley owned the hardware store at the corner of Main Street and Brunel Road (pictured here) and ran a garage across the street.
