Interesting. My 1910 serial number is 996 less than yours and the casting date is one month earlier. My T is not for sale, as I have owned it for 71 years.

71 years!!! You must have gotten it the day you were born, Darel! And Mike, are you advertising a 1910 engine or the whole car? Either way, pictures would be nice as well as an asking price.

Mikes engine number was stamped on 16 May 1910 and cast in March
Darelís engine, which was 996 less, say 24146, was stamped on 7 May 1910 and cast in February. Now production had doubled, close to 2000 a month, since mine was stamped in November 1909 when monthly output was just over 1100 engines.
The big difference? They moved production from Piquette to Highland Park in January 1910.
The next major move was improving manufacturing tolerances to allow the moving production line to operate. With my 1910, the most important tool had to have been a set of files to make the parts fit together. The lack of interchangeable parts on the early cars must have severely limited the daily production without a vast increase in the number of employees.
