How did My Family Restore a “T” Model Ford

Australian Francis Birtles became the first person to make a west-east crossing of the Australian continent by car; a car mostly makes of wood with a one-cylinder engine. His equally tenacious Russian contemporary Andrei […]

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 […]

In 1984 we started off with a pile of rusty 1926 Model T Roadster bits, and great intentions to rebuild. So we were always on the lookout for parts. We noticed an add for Model T parts for sale in Bendigo early the following year. When we went to check them out – there stored […]

It was available in “any color you want as long as it is black,” according to Henry Ford, although in fact, the very first Model T Ford, which was launched 111 years ago, came in a choice of colors. It was only when Ford shifted production of his iconoclastic car to a moving production line […]

Anniversary May 31, 1927: the production lines leave the last legendary Ford T

By BZR 0 Comment January 21, 2019

Can we say that it was legendary about a car that was produced in 15 007 033 series? It’s definitely true about Ford T. You remember the dumb grotesque in which “fordky” was demolished as a running belt. It was part of Ford’s genius advertising strategy. Such Laurel and Hardy familiarized themselves with this car […]
