Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: 1908 T expert wanted!
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By G. Wayne Miller on Tuesday, March 10, 2015 - 10:22 am:

As some of you know, I am an author whose next title, CAR WARS: The Fight for Supremacy between Ford and Olds and the Dawn of the Automobile Age, will be published in November. One passage contains a technical description of Ford's first T, which was shipped on October 1, 1908. Is there a T expert out there who would be willing to read what I have written and confirm its accuracy -- or correct errors? I have drawn my description from trade journals of the time and other sources, but would greatly appreciate a look from an authoritative source. Many thanks. You can write me at: pascoagwriter@yahoo.com -- I will then send the passage for critique. Wayne Miller, www.gwaynemiller.com. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CarWarsBook

Don't forget there is no 1908 model. The first model year was 1909.

Did you get enough about Ernie Keeler from Carol? I hoped to be copied on it.

Recommend you also review the posting at: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/411944/492557.html?1415528250 especially the entry at:
Sunday, November 09, 2014 - 09:56 pm: which contains the entire article Trent Boggess wrote "Model T Number One" article from the Nov-Dec 2004 "Vintage Ford" magazine. It includes a copy of the original shipping document for car #1. Other parts of that posting are also great as there are two different views of what most likely was car #1.

And yes, Kim Dobbins would be an excellent person to review the information as would Trent Boggess.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off
