I spent some time looking through my 1926 Canadian Ford parts book. In no particular order are some things I found.
1. from 1920-1924 they list a "torpedo" and a touring, no roadster. They both have a sloping ventilating windshield. (remember this is Canada and the one man top started in 1920 and both halves of the windshield opened)
2. the 1920-24 tops and curtains were offered in both black and "khaki" on both the touring and torpedo.
3. In 24-25 now we have a roadster and touring, no torpedo. Again both offered with black or khaki tops and curtains. These are a new part number and the windshield is also a new part number from the 20-24 version.
4. In 26 they offered a roadster and a "sport roadster". You could buy a new roadster body less windshield, rubber floor mat, and top for $110.00. Now a sport roadster with similar equipment was $130.00. A "light delivery body with box" (the roadster pickup) was also $130.00. The touring was not available as a "sport" and the body could be had for $115.00!!
5. Now here is a poser. "Light delivery van body complete $180.00" Unfortunately no picture. I will guess it was some type of C cab, but I sure don't know for sure.
6. So back to interiors. Available in black or grey (for more money). The seat back went from $4.70 in black to $6.75 in grey
7. Now the top with curtains cost $28.60 in black, but in "fawn" it was $40.00!!
8. Available lacquers for $3.75 per quart (I will assume imperial quarts) in Grey, Green, Beige, Cobalt Blue, And Black.9
9. Wire Wheels. Ford Canada was selling the Hayes wire wheel with a Ford part number. The 30 x 3 1/2 Hayes wheel was offered in 1925-26 for sure (for $65.00 complete set). The "balloon" (29 x4.40) was offered in '26 for $44.50 for a set LESS the rims!!! Available standard colours; black, napier green, casino red, and straw!! You could also buy individual spokes for the wire wheels. Wooden wheels were only $4.55 each in either 30x 3 1/2 or balloon less rim.
10. The sediment bowl was offered in both LH and RH versions for both the '25 and older and the '26 cars.
11. Now for my favorite. The Marine Unit (boat engine). All the part numbers end in MX. With out starter it was $250.00 in either LHC or RHC. with starter it was $282.50, again in LHC or RHC. One of the interesting parts was the "high speed reverse" drum. I need to try and figure out how that worked, as it was there was not a different triple gear offered. It is extra wide and so obviously replaces the low drum.
Anyway this engine came on a short bit of frame. Many years ago I saw one at a swap meet and didn't buy it. I have been kicking myself ever since. I bought this parts book at the same swap meet. There are probably other little oddities in there.
Thank you Les for taking the time to share these tidbits. Every one of them, I can recall reading threads left hanging about these points. Thank you.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
