Hello my name is greg and I'm new to this site so please bare with my slow responses or lack of this sites lingo or short terminology I just picked up (cheap) a 26/7 ? Coupe. I have a very strong 22 touring car and know nothing about 26/7 coupes. My main question is... WHAT THE H#LL HOLDS THE FRONT FLOORBOARDS IN??? I'm trying to upload pics. If anyone has pics of the front floorboards removed so I can see what holds them in place It would be appreciated. I found at macs front floorboard brackets for touring cars only. UUGGGHHHH!
Thanks for any and or all future help
greg

There is a simple, flat piece of steel (4) that is riveted (?) to the risers that you twist over to retain the boards - that was an improvement as the earlier cars had no such provision.

The boards are notched on the edges to fit to one another.

The upper set are held with two 'clips' that rotate from the holding rivet and swivel to lock or release.



Note the clip on the metal riser.

Wow mine doesn't look like that. Lol.
I do not have that bracket on either side hmmmm!
So that whole angled bracket is a separate piece for both sides?
I tried to fit my new boards in and without these brackets you can imagine the look I had on my face!
Thanks so much for the help. I'm sure joining here was a good idea. I hope sometime I'm able to help someone else
Thanks again
Greg

Greg, The angled braces that hold the floorboards on each end, occasionally come up for sale on this site's classifieds or on Ebay. I do not know if they are reproduced. If you are missing the angled brackets, or even just the floorboard hold down brackets riveted to them; they should not be impossible to find.

Thanks Dan - I couldn't remember if there was 2 or 4 clips - I don't have a '26 - '27 in the stable !

Greg:

Perhaps the early production vehicles did not have the clips. Do you know if your vehicle was built in calendar year 1925?

Thanks for all answers.
Arnie , I'm not sure there is no numbers on the motor at all by water inlet. I guess the motor is a much later year. I'm heard t motors were made into the forties. Are their any other numbers on this body or frame?

When I put the boards in they just flop on the tranny and are very loose.
I'll be taking pictures today when I get to shop, my wife thinks she can upload them
Greg

If you have the triangular end braces, make sure you have the right floorboards. If you bought them from a vendor, they could be mismarked, or they could have sent the wrong year set.

Greg

Your body is missing the left and right risers, so you will have to find those parts.

And the steering column is '25 or earlier, your body needs the square base '26'27 steering column.

You may have a serial # stamped in the top frame rail, just ahead of the running board brace strap bracket riveted to the top of the frame. Ford began stamping frames for the Improved Car in Dec 1925. Look close, usually under rust or paint.

Dan I'll check it out.
I bought a semi restored reliable 26 chassis for the coupe body. Going to get it next Sunday. I'm going to keep this chassis and try to build the speedster I always wanted. I'll call it FRANKENTEE
thanks for the help with risers and numbers
Greg

Greg; I had some of the 26 floor board risers. I will try and remember tomorrow to look and see if I still have some.
