Hey guys, I have a '26 T Coupe that was restored in 2007. I was recently chatting with a guy who said that all Model Ts had a split glass windshield from the factory, but mine has a one piece glass front window. He said it must be the windshield from a Model A. I've been trying to find information either way,but am having no luck. I see that there are other Ts with the single piece window like mine. Do any of you know what original spec was?
The 26 coupe and tudor had one piece windshields. The other models had an upper and lower piece.
All 1926/27 coupes and tudors had one piece windshields.
The early laundalets and Town Cars also had one piece windshields.
The guy you were chatting with, isn't a T expert. A lot of people think and claim they are experts and know everything, but in reality, are morons. Even someone like me who has been around T's, particularly 26-27's for 50 years, learns something every month from this forum.
That's the beauty of the forum. Everyone has blind spots - but it won't be the same blind spots for everyone, so together we can patch it up until we get (almost) the full picture
Thanks guys, good to know!
From about 1915 to end of production with the exception of the 1926/27 coupe and tudor all Model T's had split windshields including Ford supplied cabs (open and closed) for the TT. The 4 door was a carry over with only a new cowl designed to fit the new hood so still had the split windshield.
