Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: Hinges for Deck Lid Below Seat 1914 Touring
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Dennis Sanford - Lucas, TX on Friday, September 18, 2015 - 04:47 pm:

Did both the front and rear deck lid below the seat cushion have hinges on a 1914 Touring? Was this a wood or metal lid? Were the same hinges used for front and rear?

There is a diagram posted on November 7, 2005 http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/29/7861.html that shows hinges on the front above the gas tank. On June 19, 2011, Hap Tucker posted pictures (8th picture and by pennies) on a different subject which shows hinges on the rear. http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/179374/218626.html?1308579191
Are there other pictures of these hinges posted on the Forum? Does one of the suppliers sell these?
Thanks

Snyders has them maybe others carry them too. jb

From on-line catalog: Model T Under Seat Hinges

Under the seat cushions, there is normally a wooden lid that allows you access to the gas tank or a storage compartment. These are the authentic style hinges for the lid. Made in Sweden.

T-9500 $43.50 / pr.

The hinges that Keith shows are available at any Ace Hardware store for about $4 a pair. They are brass plated but look perfect with a coat of black paint.

Royce-

When I was needed a set of these hinges a few years ago, I could not find them locally. Not at the Ace nor any of the specialty hardware stores. I finally found them from Hippo Hardware and found that they got them from Kennedy.

If you can find them today at your local Ace Hardware, I'm sure there are guys who would be interested.

The key is to search as, "trunk hardware".

They also have them here:

Here they are in steel:

...and here...

No, they are not cheap.

Dennis, the hinges would be the same for the front and rear.
