Model T Ford Forum: Classifieds: For Sale: Early Heinze Coilbox

For Sale: Early Heinze coilbox in good original condition. The wood is solid and joints tight. All original brass hardware is present. The key can be removed and the switch handle moves freely. It is missing one out of the four metal-topped coils. Note that the coils have two asymmetrical brass pins that extend through the bottom of the box into electrical contacts. There are 6 small holes in the lid where a homemade sheetmetal cover was fastened to keep it dry from the rain.

I have been told that this was not used on Fords, but have not been able to positively identify other applications. Hoping someone out there needs it to complete their restoration or original car.

$550 or best offer, plus actual shipping costs. Or can hand deliver to Hershey for pickup at my space.

Please contact me via email shown below or PM. More pictures available upon request.

Looks like the Heinze used on the 1909 Hudson.

This coilbox is still for sale, as the buyer has reconsidered.

I have added pictures of the back and bottom.

Thanks,
Dan

R.V.,

My friend's '09 Hudson used a very similar box but used the style of coils that were keyed together. "M" & "F" marked on the coils.

Yup; that was Heinze's patented mortise and tenon design, claimed to help with coils bouncing around and losing contact in the box. The earliest Heinze used on the T ( early calendar 1911) had them. "M" was for "male" (the tenon) and "F" for female (the mortise).

After eliminating the mortise and tenon, the coils retained the thick side but the stencils changed to "L" and "R", and then finally "Y" and "Z" before the coils changed to the somewhat simpler 1912 style.
