Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2014: How many T's do you own?
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Bill Elliott on Thursday, February 06, 2014 - 07:31 pm:

I currently own only one T, an early 1916 Touring car. I am really considering expanding my "collection" by buying a '14 Touring. Just wondering how many of you own multiple T's and how many own just one?

Be careful! I am up to around 10 and have enough sheet metal for a couple more. It is amazing how they multiply.(I tell folks to not turn the lights off in the shop.)

I have 3 complete and all the parts of #4 to make another driver. All 4 are 26's but only 3 have titles and only 1 runs and drives right now. The list is 1 tudor, 1 huckster, 1 touring, (wife's project car) and the parts will be a cut off touring made into a pickup/hillbilly truck. On my wish list is an early 12 touring.

I have four.
'15 Rajo Speedster.
'21 cut of TT/Fond Du Lac tractor.
'24 pickup.
'24 Tudor.
I drive the Tudor year around and the open ones summer only.
Tractor not running yet...it was yard art for about 50 yrs before I got it. It's getting close to running.
Fun stuff.
Also have restored '40 Ford coupe and PU but drive the Ts the most.

Just a measly three, have room for four, so guess I am looking :-)


Moving the '21 Autowa bodied touring to its garage space, the trailer is now available for storing another T. He He.

Bob
The 40 ford pickup is my all time favorite pickup.
I envy you.
My 28 ford open pickup comes in second on my list.
Well maybe a 32 open pickup could push it aside.

Three, 26 Tudor, 26 barn-fresh Roadster, 25 Fordor(for sale) and a very large building full of parts. Wish list includes a brass touring someday. Wife would like a Roadster pickup.

I only have the 1926 Tudor... I just received my disk brakes this morning from Texas T. I will be installing a Ruckstell next month...I finally found one and if all goes well with the deal and shipping(I sent the check,just don't know the person I sent it to) I hope to install it next month. Saying all this, when I finish all the upgrades to this one I want I may buy another if one comes my way....I really am interested in buying and rebuilding another 26 engine for a spare...I like driving the T and would hate for something to happen that would keep it parked for a long time.....so I would like to be prepared.....I have a nice hot rod "48 Studebaker truck" but it seems to stay in the garage since I have the T.....I seem to enjoy it more....

Bottom Line Up Front: 3 Ts

As I live longer, I think I understand better that I don't really own any of my Ts. They all had someone else's name on the title before they were in my possession and they will most likely have someone else’s name than mine in the future. I'm the current caretaker and I hope to one day pass them on or even sell them to someone that will give them a good home. Technically I own them -- or at least the state would say I owe taxes or need to purchase tags etc. if I want to drive them on the roads. And if things went south I would sell them rather than starve etc. but I would sell a lot of other things before the cars. So right now I'm the care taker for about 3 Ts or 4 if you count Donor. [You don't want to be a car with the name Donor -- it doesn't bode well for your future. But Donor was in a accident and was purchased because it has a lot of usable parts to repair / keep the others going. And then there is the collection of body parts one 1915-16 Beaudett front half of a touring with the wooden seat frame and a 1917-20ish rear seat tub with a metal seat frame. It would have been nice if they were both wooden seat framed or both metal seat framed sections. ]

More than how many Ts a person is taking care of, I think a more important question is, are we enjoying them? Having fun and enjoyment with one T is much better than 5 causing stress in our marriage or budget etc.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

I have 4.

As it turns out, most people I know own at least 1 Model T, but very few of them own only 1.

What is 1 Model T? A start.
2 Model T's are a pair.
3 Model T's are a collection!

I only have one, a '19 Runabout and it is probably the only one I'll ever have. Some day down the road, I might like a closed car as well. Most likely a Coupe.

Been through 4.
The first was the '20 Coupe, then the '19 Touring followed by a '25 Fordor and finally the '27 Tudor.
I loved the Touring and Tudor so much I sold the Coupe, bought a Model A and filled the other slot with my '25 Dodge sedan.
Got a '59 Chev too....... :-)

I like that thought Royce!
I have 4, '12 Roadster pickup, '15 Touring, '20 Runabout, & a '25 TT firetruck. Pretty much all I can afford. And the barn's full. It seems best to have more than one as it is becoming obvious to me that at any given time, at least one will be "down".

1/2 of a Model T. I say one half because, the engine is dismantled. When I get the engine together, I'll have one Model T! :-)

Ok, back to the point. I have a 1926 Model T Fordor Sedan.

I only have 1 "T" '27 roadster looking for another the rest of my list goes like this
'50 dodge PU (rat because it was too far gone)
'26 Buick (Current project)
'65 Corvair Convertible 140 4 speed
'74 MGB GT (every one should have one English car to drive them crazy)
'46 Plymouth P-15 (Fathers Day gift from wife 2007)
And because my wife complained that all of my old cars had transmissions she couldn't operate I bought her a '72 mercury Comet 302/auto then went to the flea market and got an airbrushed tag that reads Grandma's car.
