I picked up two original Ford tools yesterday, an open end wrench and a monkey wrench. They both appear to be forged at Moore Drop Forging Company from Springfield, Massachusetts. Does anyone know much about them? It's cool to see tools with the Ford script.

Doing some quick research on ebay, they seemed to be from toolkits that came with Model A and T Fords.

According to my Dad, all the Model T's and Model A's came with tool kits which is where those tools with the Ford script on them came from. Yes, they are very cool and I buy them whenever I can if I can get them resonable. While we're on the subject, several years ago I bought a really old socket and ratchet kit at a flea market that came in a wooden box that was stamped Mossberg. The box has individual compartments for each of the sockets and ratchet. The really neat thing about it is the sockets and ratchet are designed so that there's no need for a deep wells. The bolt or stud can pass right through the ratchet. Some lady was looking at them before me and trying to get the guy to sell her just the box without the tools. Good thing he didn't split up the set.
