I am new to this site and although I do not have a Model T I do have a 1934 Ford Pickup truck V8. I am attempting to trace the ownership of this truck. I understand it was once owned by Edward Towe, placed in his museum in CA. During his IRS issues, he possibly moved this truck to Genoa, NV, where he ultimately sold it to a local resident possibly in 1990 or so. It eventually ended up with me in 2014, has only 7,000 miles.
I would very much appreciate any info you guys may have to verify this tale. The truck is unique in that the body has been re-painted red over red, the fenders/running boards a yellow which I think is Tacoma Yellow. The wire wheels are yellow.
Thanks in advance for any help offered....Bill
Bill try over at Fordbarn.com also. They have a very active V8 section;
You might try contacting Karen at the California Auto Museum in Sacramento. This is where a large portion of the Towe collection was until the IRS got involved. There might be some old records.
John - I had the same idea, except I thought her name was Kristy, or Kristie, or Christy, Christie,........? At any rate, she is the daughter of Edward Towe,.........harold
Harold, Kristy is no longer with the museum. Karen McClaflin is the executive director. Hopefully there are records in their archives of the disposition of cars that have been at the museum... John
Thanks John,....shows how much I know, huh? Everything changes eventually I guess,.....harold
Well, I guess that shows how much I know, huh? Seems that everything changes eventually,....thanks John,....harold
Well THAT was weird! Went back into the thread after I posted my 02:29 post and it was not there! Thinking that I did something wrong, I re-posted my comment at 02:31 and went back in to check,....AND THEY WERE "BOTH" THERE!
Oh well,.....whatever,....seems like I can find a more than one way to double post,....ha,ha,....harold
And Harold! We love ya for it.
Harold, You need to remember that how things change the more they remain the same. After all look at Henry and his T. It was a low priced, economical to own and put America on wheels. Other manufacturers ( even today ) are emulating Henry with their volume. But no matter how you slice it there is probably more T's registered
than there are VW. Bugs.
my Nichols worth FWIW
