Here is some info on my 1913 t that I purchased last year from the grandaughter of the original owner. Her husband who had enjoyed the car with her was dying of cancer. She was an only child and had only one daughter herself that was not interested in the car. After 99 years in the family she figured it was time to sell the car. It came with extensive pictures and news articles from when the car was new to the present. It included a photo of her grandfathers family in the car when it was new. I also got the original registrations from 1919 and 1922 with the engine and body numbers on them. The car even had the original side curtains under the back seat.
You gotta post pictures when you get time, sounds like you got a great piece of history. What's your plans for the car preserve it or restore it?
Welcome to the wonderful world of T's
Sounds like a lot of great documentation that could be helpful to others also. It would make a great addition as a story to the "Vintage Ford" etc.
While it is a real long shot – one of the photos you have may be early enough and might also have the coil box in the photo – and might answer your question about what type of coil box it originally had.
We are looking forward to additional details about the car as you have time.
I would really like to see all the stuff you have, including photos of the side curtains! Great find!
