WELL USED FORD - TRICKED OUT WITH A BIT OF ADVERTISING!

Here is a fine Ford Runabout with a bit of exterior "advertising" on Shorpy today! 8-) Girls beware!! :o Maybe we just stopped off for shake or sundae but caught the photographer's eye!

Re: Texas T Party 2019 Brenham, TX Day 3

I was one of the hearty souls. Also known as not too smart! :? The wind was straight out of the north and climbing a hill with a 29-mph headwind almost stopped the '14 Touring car. While some were getting out of their modern cars for lunch, picking up pecans and getting used to the "cool breeze", I ...

Re: 1913 T Photos

Nice detail on an interesting 1913 RHD runabout. Black & Brass lamps.
E & J side lamps (could be CLASCO) and what appear to be electrified John Brown 16 headlamps.

Re: Cleaning a concrete floor

In the areas of the shop where I park the Model T's, I use a layer of cut open large corrugated boxes laid on the concrete under the Model Ts. On top of the corrugated, I put the drip pan under the engine area. I've found the corrugated catches the "here and there" drops of oil, front to rear, cause...

Re: Rebuilding a Model T

Welcome aboard. Looks like you may have a wonderful trip ahead! Auto Inn is correct, although beginning with a running car is an advantage, there are many aspects of a reassembly that are a real plus.

They are not Clasco which are easily distinguished by the large all steel round bowl font. The headlights are U.S. E&J Black & Bra...

Re: Odd Ring Gear

That 48 tooth Ford gear goes with a 12 tooth Ford pinion that is smaller than the 12 tooth offered by the vendors today. I discovered that while looking for what the teeth are on the " 1 to 2-4/7 " in the add. I have seen the 2-4/7 advertised and in old articles and was just curious. The aftermarket...
