Hello everyone this will officially be my first post on this site and as of 1 hr ago I am now a member of the model t club of America.
I would just like to say hi and how great this site seems to be. I've watched people helping each other for a year now and finally joined
I've have a 22 touring car that runs great and just purchased a 26 coupe project that I'm worried May just be a parts car. It was CHEAP!!
I'll upload pics of the coupe when I figure it out and maybe ask a few questions
Thanks for any and all future help.
Hope someday I'll be the one answering the questions
Welcome to the club and the site! Looking forward to seeing more pictures.
Greg: Welcome to the disease, or what ever you call it?!
As a member for a bunch of years 20 or more and enjoy everything I read on here.
What do you mean a parts car, Model T's are parts cars. A few parts here and a few part there and look I have a a car ready for the road.
Just be careful as if you have one or two the could soon be more, kinda like Rabbits!
I started with a '19 touring and then it caused a Depot Hack to appear. I have enough parts for the beginning of a speedster. A frame, front and rear axle, complete motor transmission, with starter gen fan carb and timer, almost ready to install in frame and drive off.
Get the Model T Ford Service Manual, unless you already have one. They are the Bible of Model T's. I have about three copies, one at my desk here and two in the shop, so if I think of a problem I have a copy to fall back on. God luck and "Happy T'ing
Welcome Greg ! From another newbie ! All the folks here have been great to me and are a true wealth of information and knowledge . Everyone on here has been super helpful anytime a new or old question arises !! Congrats on your 26 coupe ! I'm working on a 26 Tudor and a 26 roadster pick up , they do multiply , !!
Welcome Greg. This is a good place for any questions you may have. You will usually get a lot of good answers to any question you may have. You may also get a few opinionated answers. That is just the way it is when a bunch of old opinionated men get together to discuss stuff. As to your car being a parts car. I know of cars built from little more than a grease spot on the floor. Please post some pics, we love pics of the projects. submitted with respect, Donnie Brown
Hi everyone. Thanks for the nice welcome
I will def post pics of the so called parts car.
I did buy a very nice amateur restored 26 chassis to put the coupe body on. The guy has had around 12 self restored cars and of the three he still owns I'd have to use amateur carefully. They are beautiful restos.
Thanks again and hope to talk soon
