The MODEL T FORD
!! The Car that changed the world !!



 
My thanks to Laurent d'Entremont for submitting this picture.
It is a 1923 Model T Ford and a 1951 Ford Convertible.
Laurent had the following to say about the picture. 
"It is a 1923 Model T (Touring) bought new by Len Wood of Tusket Nova Scotia Canada. He put a pickup truck box on the back when new and drove it until
1962...today his grand nephew Gordie Wood of Tusket owns the car and  has 
restored it as a touring car again...he does not drive it, it is now a museum piece in Gordie's garage. 
The driver of the 1951 was Eric Taylor of Yarmouth....no longer living...

If you like old pictures of cars and trucks you might find this site interesting
It shows a number of original photographs from the early 20th century

Early Car Pictures


No one knows for sure if Henry Ford actually said, "You can paint it any color as long as it's BLACK" but that phrase has survived for almost a century and does indicate something about the beloved Model T.
No other car has done what it has done and no other car ever will.
The Model T was not the first car that Henry Ford produced but he had a dream of producing "a car for the masses"

After two unsuccessful attempts to establish a company to manufacture these early Fords, the Ford Motor Company was incorporated in 1903 with Henry Ford as vice-president and chief engineer

I have shown some of his earlier cars which were produced from 1896 to 1907 when at which time he introduced the world to the "MODEL T".
The first production Model T Ford was assembled at the Piquette Avenue Plant in Detroit on October 1, 1908. For the next 19 years, Ford would build more then 15,000,000 cars and trucks with the Model "T" engine. The only other car to exceed that number was the Volkswagen Beetle.
Considering the years when Henry did it, 1908 to 1927 it is surly a record that will never be beaten.
Henry Ford had succeeded in his dream of building a car for the masses.

With the development of the sturdy Model T in 1908, Henry Ford made his company the biggest in the industry. The moving assembly line, which Ford introduced in 1914 enabled Ford to produce far more cars than any other company.

Contrary to what we may have heard or read The early Model T's actually did come in a variety of colors in the early years but beginning with the 1914 model year and for the next eleven years after, the Model T would be sold in only one color: black. The reason for this was that the black paint used dried more quickly than other paints, which sped up the production line.
This lowered costs and that sold more cars.
The Model T continued to be produced until 1927 when the other low priced manufactures offered many new features that Ford couldn't match with the old design.
In 1928 the Model A was introduced. It too was a great success although it's production run was much shorter then the Model T.
Automobiles were advancing at such a great rate that models had to be updated much more often. Something the Henry Ford was reluctant to do.
Business pressures however forced him it to follow the same trend as everyone else.

I would also like to invite any of my visitors that have a picture of a Model T Ford that they would like to have shown on this page to e mail me a copy. 

 
One of my visitors has made a special request. His email is shown below in it's entirety.
After stock car racing for 12 consecutive years and building a lot of chassis around the country, including a lot of custom fabrication in many respects, I have the need to build a late 20's early 30's Ford Sedan or delivery.  I'm not sure why, but I am having a difficult time finding a chronological history of this period, including the production numbers, variations, and pictures of each.  I am an engineer by trade and also plan to design and build my own chassis, and a lot of the body; however, I can't find any detail drawings/prints in order to effectively build or refer to.  I know that someone out there has put this drawings in CAD (computer aided drawing) format over the years.  This is how I will do most of my design to build work.
Do you have any ideas on how I might get some of the above information I am searching for?  I really appreciate your help in advanced. 
If anyone has any information or can help on this matter please contact Joey direct at

Model T Ambulances
This picture was submitted by Marsali Taylor
In 1917 a group of 75 women went out to the Russian Front to found two field hospitals under the auspices of the Scottish Women's Hospital, an organisation funded by the Women's Suffrage society. They were led by an early Scottish woman doctor, Dr Inglis.  An old lady that I knew when a child was one of their ambulance drivers, and she titled the diaries she kept 'The Diary of a Ford Car Stunt'. 
They drove their converted Model T ambulances over impossible terrain, under fire, and, at one point, behind the retreating army, 
picking up wounded.
This picture shows the ambulances in front of the hospital.

 
Don Pate of Arkansas City, Kansas submitted these pictures of
a late model Model T Mud Buggy. He found the T a short
distance from where he lives

 
   
   

 
The following pictures were submitted by Tom Barnard
This  is a remanufactured Model T....A total of 5 was manfactured for the 100 year anniversery 
The cars ended up in several differant places but it was known for sure one of them was in the Lobby at World Head Quarters WHQ and has been used at the Henry Ford Museum.
Several differant groups participated, the original was set for 100 Re-Mans but got changed as the program went on. Tom was part of a team of prototype fabrication specialists that helped produce some parts and the roof system, gas and ignition levers and so on, the body was made in Sweden, because of the Rotunda fire some years ago not all of the original drawings were available. But we had a good part of them on CD. and He think are still around here somewhere. The engine was scanned by X.Ray and a full scale cad file was created and the engine was re-cast....because of the tighter tolerancing we are able to hold that first one purred like a Kitten.

 This 1924 Model T truck was originally a ranch truck in

The little green truck still boasts her original engine,
and operates daily on the island of Coronado running 
errands and promoting business. This truck has been 
nicknamed "Olive Oyl," because she is tall and skinny, 
spinach green, and her shrill horn sounds like Olive
yelling for Popeye.

Opened it up on the California Freeway and at 65 mph it was still pulling but shut it down because Daddy lost his nerve with NO safety equipment.

In approx. 1985 Daddy and I were at the drag strip here in Ark City.  We dialed both the cars in...his Model "T" and our 1969 Cheve Chevelle.  I caught up with him right at the lights after what seemed a forever wait at the starting line. He won at 55 mph. I lost because I broke out.

Momma and Daddy have toured in the '15 as far east as Detroit, MI; as far north as Calgary, Canada; was shipped to Europe for month long tour; and shipped to New Zealand and Australia for a month long tour.

Home for Daddy's 1915 Model "T" is Hawthorne, (L.A. area) California.
