For those who requested. Attached are photos of my three original Ford parts bins. They are part of my Model T ford Museum. Also visable are my original Ford key board and gasket board.The parts bins and display cases are filled with my NOS Model T Ford parts collection. We also have a full shop of KR Wilson and Stevens equipment and tools. The central point of the Museum is an original Ford Dealer Sign. I am sure that it dates back to 1909 or 10. It is identical in design to the more common porcelain signs but this one is painted and framed in a wood frame. The blue paint is very rough because it is filled with sand. Very strange but very beautiful. I have never seen another Ford sign like it. I found it in an old garage at Pismo Beach, California.
Thank you Glen for sharing your great collection with the Forum Members.
Best regards, John Page, Australia.
Thanks John, glad you enjoyed the pictures. It took me 40 years to find the bins. Had to pay dearly but it was worth it
Very nice, thanks for sharing.
I have been to see Glenn's collection several times and still haven't seen it all. He has many wonders to show including some interesting project cars. Well worth your time if you are in the area.
Glenn, I have an identical set of those shelves in my garage. They came out of a Model T Ford garage in western Penna. Some of the bins still have the original ford parts numbers on them.
Your a lucky man Earnie. There appears to be few of these left. There was a set in Corona when I moved here but someone else beat me to them. I then had to wait 40 years to find another set. I didn't care what they cost. I paid the price just to get them. Mine also had some of the parts numbers on them.
Glen - Would it be possible for you to post a photo of the early sign you mentioned in the first post? It sounds really neat. Thanks.
Sure Mike, I'll take some photos tomorrow and post them.
Here are a couple of mfg. brands specializing in parts bin storage for Model T parts in the day.
Here are some more literature on parts bins.
Can you tell me the location in Pismo Beach where you got the signs,I am curious as I lived there for 10 years
Don, Pismo Beach is north of Santa Barbara and South of Morro Bay. See Ford Dealer sign post
