I have a 1914 T and am replacing the glass- this is my hinge on the windshield. Can someone help me identify the year of this particular windshield? Doesn't look like a '14 style. Plus, for anyone who has replaced glass- what do you recommend? Naturally safety glass, but besides that any details would be welcome.
not ford !I have one like that. I saw one on a 1912 reo a long time ago.charley
Danged- I wonder if I can at least get the top up with this style windshield? Any thoughts? Thanks.
Did you just buy that 1914 touring in Waukegan this week? It looked like a nice car on Craigslist. If you are putting in new glass, you may want to find a proper 1914 windshield. I do not think that it would be that hard to find.
Yes, I did- you called it. It did come with a 1914 windshield but it is fairly rusty and I have to determine if it'll handle the weight.
The 1914 windshield assembly is one of the most distinctive features of that model year. It is black painted with brass weather channel beading around the glass. The screw heads are also brass plated steel. The windshield folds to the rear, unlike the 1913 windshield.
I own an original 11 X 17 print of this photo. The negative is at the Henry Ford, along with several other shots of this same car from various angles.
Thanks Royce, nice pic! This is the current condition of my 1914 windshield. This particular hinge has two open holes in it, am I missing a part? I will definitely try and clean it up today and see how it is underneath the age.
Royce, (and others) do the '14 windshields use the hooks to hold the roof straps down in the center of the hinge? In the pic above the hooks seem to be missing from the center screw.
The tubular braces that are fastened to the body and extend up to support the windshield have two holes on the upper ends. The lower hole is fastened to that big screw in the center of the hinge, the top hole is for the top hold-down hook.
You can see the top straps connected in this photo.
