I'm doing some repairs on a Model T Tudor in my area. It is an original appearing, Canadian, 1926 Tudor, Made in Canada block and head with '26 casting dates. Serial number starts with "SM" instead of the usual "C". Anyone know what that means? # is, SM548508
SM may be a marine designation. Or possible State Municipality restamp.
Ed may be onto something. In 1926 Ford Canada did sell T marine engine outfits complete in the parts book!!
Interesting. I will be back there in a week or two and will try to find a frame number. The owner has the car registered to an entirely different number than what's on the engine. Please keep the replies coming. Thanks.
That's an interesting puzzle. Here in New Zealand I have come across three Canadian engines with engine numbers beginning SC. They are all very close to one another in numbers being SC 702004, SC 702009 and SC 7020025. All tourers. Numbers I have recorded either side are simply C....... I have never come across any reason for this. Was it a special batch? Does anybody have an answer for this wee question?
