How many of our Model T's have Celebrated their 100th Birthday in the Club? My 1914 T Runabout. Engine #395707, 12/16/1913. Ford dash plaque #371928, 11/13/1913. Engine casting date 11/22/1913.
Stamped on the wood under the seat, 131..951..3M14?? On the metal kick plate under the seat, Large M, Smaller B. ? Thanks Mark.
Mine's just a kid. Turned 90 in March of this year...
My '14 Touring is April 22, 1914. While at Hershey I got a 100 Year plaque for it from Carl Pate.
Five of mine so far. A '10, '12, '13 and two '14s.
My 14 Touring turned 100 July 2nd.
'14 touring, Aug. 11.
Two 11's here.
According to the encyclopedia.
Four more years, in 2018.
the 2015 cars are out
I forgot my 1907 Model R.
'08 Maxwell LC Tourabout
My '14 has the same thing. The casting date is January, the serial number is March and the body number is April.
My roadster will hit the 100 mark next June.
My 13 and 14 tourings.
1910 touring, 1912 roadster, 1905 F toneau, 1907 N roadster
The engine in my 14 turned Oct 21 2013 and the rest of the car has caught up
My '14 is a hundred... but it's also apart. <grin>
My Dads Touring turned 100 back in 2010. We celebrated by driving it over a 4 day 600 mile tour back to the town where it was sold new. I still have 2 more years until my 16' Touring turns 100. Will give it a repaint for the occasion!
My great-grandparents took delivery of the '14 Touring on Oct. 7th 1914, according to the original Bill-of-Sale.
Block casting date is mid September, so the car didn't sit around long during production.
With an engine number of 14488XXX most model t's are older than mine she just turned 87 in April!
Derek, that's another birthdate! Poter Nilson didn't take delivery of the '14 that I now own, until early July of 1914. I guess that Ford had their supply chain bugs sorted out a little better in the fall. Or perhaps, it was just easier to get to Adams, MN than to the sprawling metropolis of Luck, WI, where my car was sold new.
My 1914 (495181) turned 100 on April 10 with a casting date of 3/9/14 and my 1916 (984605) will be 99 on Nov. 30 with a casting date of 11/22/15.
My 15 Pick up will hit 100 March 5th (casting date) next year. Not far away!
When our T turned 100 in 2012, my wife hosted her doll club for a theme party in which they all wore period costumes and brought dolls from that period. We took photos of each lady holding her doll in front of the car.
The Caddy turned 110 last June, the Brush turned 102 last month. The T's must be their kids at 88 years old.
My '12 Torpedo Roadster #126992
Count in my '14 Touring.
2 for me last year, still have another 12 years to go for the 26 Tudor.
52 years for the bird and 58 years for the Ranchero GT.
It doesn't have the original engine to provide an exact date, however the original body manufacturer's tag indicates that my runabout should turn 100 in about seven months. (Feb '15 body, plus about two months for supply chain and the rest of assembly should make it a May '15 car?) Sadly, it is likewise a basket case.
The gasoline carriage, sadly, also lacks a definitive date. However, it should be about 115 next year.
My mostly '13 T speedster? Well? Yes, it is mostly 1913. But it is assembled from parts of many different Ts. Although it is "mostly '13", I really don't claim it as being 100 years old.
My coupe turned 90 about six months ago. So it has 9 1/2 years to wait yet.
Happy century to all the brass Ts!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Three 14's and two 11's. Mike
