Just got it to the point it runs and looks fairly well!!!
Drive carefully, and do enjoy! W2
I see a summer of fun ahead Ray
Congrats - looks great!
I do want to take a moment to thank all who have given me great advice to get my Tudor to this point!
Yours and mine both have what people here tell me are Model A bumpers on them.
Ray- not being critical, but if you could see my son's '27 Tudor then you wouldn't connect your chain to the *center* of the front axle.
Dennis, I like your bumpers, but I am 98% certain that they are NOT Model A bumpers. Yes, they look similar, but the end curves are all wrong for Model A. (although, I suppose someone could have changed the bend, but that would have taken a lot of work, as they are spring steel!
I always figured they were stock 1927 Ford bumpers? It's the guys here on the forum that are telling me they were either Model A or aftermarket?
There's a Ford script emblem in the middle of the front one?
Ray,A very nice looking T and please use straps with endless loops for ty downs! Bud.
John: I do know that is a bad spot. But at the time bringing it home did not have very many options. Tore down to frame to rebuild chassis. Had a nice spare strait front axle that was going on it anyway. I do appreciate the helpful tip though!
Dennis: Your bumpers look almost 1928-1929 Model A to me from the pictures you posted. Mine are 1930-1931 Model A. I got a great deal on a rusty original set that were not beat up and I was not going for 100 point car. My color is hot rod black with John Deere green gloss strip and accent. The bumpers are painted to match the rim color of a flat aluminum. But drive train is all original. I feel these cars are all about having fun and the enjoyment that comes along with that. Also putting a smile on someone's face as you drive by!!
The stock T bumpers have open ends. The round medallion in the center is a Ford item, used on the T and the early A bumpers
I think the ones on my '26 are very similar, if not identical to yours (although I have a much larger center clamp where you have the Ford part). I don't have neat back ones like you have (and the back ones do look very similar to '28-29 A back bumpers--I would need a close up picture to tell, but I think I see some details that don't match the As from the pic you posted.
Ray.......I hope you love your '27 Tudor as much as I love mine!
It is such a joy to drive.......
I sure love mine Craig. The Mrs. and drive it around like it was the family 'grocery getter'. In fact, it has been the family grocery getter on more than one occasion.
Craig I really do love the Tudor. The wife and I drive all over town in it as well. Even my wife who is 6 months pregnant still loves to ride. I know that I am going to have put seat belts in the back seat for a pumpkin seat. Time to get another generation to love the Model T's!
That nice top Ray. Ha Ha Tim
Thanks Tim! I know a guy who does good work!!!
