Thanks for posting the catalog. Boy if you could buy at those prices and sell at todays prices you would never have to worry about making any payments again. Just look what a new crankshaft cost in those days. I remember overhouling my first T Motor in 1949. At that time Montgomery Wards catalogs were full of model T parts including a complete short block.
Thanks for the posting Dick. I have enjoyed looking at them. It's amazing to see all the products, and accessories.
Glad you enjoyed the catalog items.
When I bought my first car, a '26 Ford Coupe in '53, I bought a set of new coils off the shelf at a local hardware store in our small town! Also, both Sears and Monkey Ward still listed many Model T parts in their catalogs.
I located a Ford dealer who had been in business since the Model T days. I bought a pickup truck load of NOS fenders from him for $26!
Those were the days.
Dick, thanks so much for posting these pages. Just might help identify some suff at swap meets! Dave
Man....gathering from all that I have to say this...
They developed allot of gadgets to repair things half ass back then.
