The engine castings (head and block) were made before December 1, 1911. Since most blocks left the factory installed in cars within two weeks my car is now officially 100 years old! I thank all the previous owners for keeping the car largely intact and bearing most of its original parts for all these years.

Even the guy who painted it this color!

Gotta admit, my favorite Model T is the 1912 Step-Body Touring.

Happy Birthday Royce.

I heard that was a "special order" color. :-)

Enjoy, and Happy Holidays,

Rob

Royce,

Happy B'day celebration! And thank you for posting the body number photo. I'm a little tired and for some reason I think the photo has an optical illusion or maybe just my eyes. It looks like the wood piece is not flat I suspect it really is. I would guess you lifted up the front seat cushion and the number is stamped on the wood frame located in front of the gas tank. But in case it is in a different location, would you please confirm I guessed right or let us know where it is stamped?

Again -- great car and I know you have and will continue to take great care of it.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

Royce,

Congratulations on your car turning 100! I wish I was lucky enough to own a 12 T.

Paul

Royce, you are indeed fortunate to have such a complete and pretty much original car. Have you been able to determine just why one of the previous owners painted it that color? Happy Birthday for the T. Dave

So far as I can tell any of the known previous owners are deceased. Funny thing, the car was entered in the Greenfield village show in the latr 1970's and no one remembers seeing it.
