Are there a lot of 1926 27 Fordor Sedans stills around? I would like to find out more about them. There do not seem to be many 26 27 Fordor's, but there are a lot of Tudor's. Are there wood blueprints/diagrams that can be bought? I would like to see more photographs of restoration and completed FORDOR's.... Please post more photo's.

Go to the fordwood.com website.
They fabricate wood structure body kits for Model T's.

They have some drawings of the 26-27 T fourdoor sedan body wood that will give you a good idea of what you will need for the fourdoor body.

Daniel - There are lots of '26 & '27 Fordors around. The thing is they're not seen as often as more desirable body styles like Tourings, Roadsters etc. Further, they are harder to restore than other body styles due to the amount of complex wood work often required. In addition, because they are so heavy, they do not perform as well as the lighter body types.

My '27 Fordor weighs 2300 pounds, lots more than a touring that maybe weighs 1600 pounds. Our Fordor was our First T and we used to take it on lots of national tours. With 4 people in it and no Ruckstell, it is really slow on hills. I spent lots of time in low gear :-( but we always made it.

There was a thread back in 2009 on how to identify where a Fordor was built: www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/80257/111490.html#POST195985 Go to Hap's entry on October 24, 2009 for a picture of the body stamping showing where that body was made. It shows "HP" for Highland Park, and the 5 digit body number. This is stamped between the left front door sill and the hand brake lever hole.

Daniel, the top picture is looking at the bottom tack strip from behind the front seat (what is left of it). The bottom picture is the top tack strip.
