Four (4) hand made / painted radiator caps to fit your Model T / TT Ford.
I designed the 3 different Michelin Man caps with service trucks in mind.
Coffee Grinder: $80 + $15 shipping
Michelin Man: $100 each + $15 shipping
I will entertain reasonable offers & combine shipping on multiple purchases.
Noticed the Bibendum man..... near where I was raised, there was a Michelin Tire plant in Milltown, NJ......
Unfortunately, at present, Michelin does not make a tire, as they did for many years, for the 4.40-4.50 x 21 size.
Had they made that tire, I would have been one of the first to purchase and drive in the Milltown July 4th parade. After years of neglect, the factory buildings were destroyed by a fire in the early '60's. Michelin closed it's Milltown plant about 1934.
I have fun looking for parts and making these. I thought that they would look cute on someone's service truck / wrecker. All the profits go to a local autism awareness organization.

That's good of you! I will take the one with the tire down low and the hand up high!
I have your address I Think, Damn senior moment.
All the Best,
Send me a PM with your address please.
Hank, You got it and thank You again. I used to think that it was funny when my grandma would go thru all the kids names til she got the right one. It's not so funny now that I do it. HA!

Just received my COOL radiator cap from Kim, pretty awesome!
All the Best,

Glad you like it! As I have stated before, I enjoy looking for period pieces that are automobile related (mostly). Some were selected for "cuteness". I just started one with an elephant with front leg on the earth (very similar to the Jumbo Giant logo). I thought it would look good on someone's TT with a JG aux trans.
Henry. Could you please post photo of what ornament looks like installed on your vehicle ? I would like to see what it looks like on a vehicle. Also, very thoughtful of Kim to pass on the profits to a non-profit organization.
Janet, Thank you for your purchase.
The red racer, the coffee grinder & Michelin Man with arm and leg in air have been sold.
Keep watching as more are added.
If you are looking for something specific, send me a PM. I enjoy the hunt!
