Restoration of An 1914 Model T Ford

Pictures always make cars look great. When I bought my ‘14, I thought I was buying a ‘15 and by appearance looked quite sound and as I said to my wife, “It’s a bargain”! Lifting the bonnet to see the 1914 motor with the screw in welsh plugs I noted that all the fittings were […]
