Hi,
I have made a couple of Model T's in glass - 3D scale replicas (plans courtesy of another glass craftsman). I now want to do some of my own design and am trying to find scale drawings and accurate photos to make a 1913 Fire Engine. I saw a thread from a couple of years ago, and hope one of those enthusiast can help.

This may be the earlier post on a 1913 fire car conversion.

Hi,
Those pics are awesome, thanx a million (I must have done a male look as I missed them in my search). I am coming to the conclusion that that there was no one official build, but different mods. I will just have to choose one I like. I have scale plans for circa 1914 Model T pickup - Does anyone know if I can use the same size chassis/engine housing, or was it a different wheel base?

Ford didn't make a factory T fire truck. But Ford sold thousands upon thousands of bare chassis. So all 1914 would be the same 100" car chassis, same engine, same everything.

Only after 1917 did Ford make a longer chassis, but that was the Ton Truck, used the same engine and front axle, but all frame and chassis and rear axle parts were very different than the car chassis.

Many companies around the world would have made fire apparatus to place on the Ford chassis, so you can find many styles and examples of fire 'trucks' on car chassis.

Hi,
Thanx a million, that explains loads. I couldn't figure out the different sizes I was seeing, but can now get down to designing one. Will use my standard chassis for "earlier" model, and If I can get my hands on drawings for a Ton truck, then can make a large one as well, which looks like more fun with accessories.
You guys have been extremely helpful for someone who doesn't even own a real one. Totally awesome.
Here's a pic of my first "Model T".
