what are the best ref. books to get. I have from here to obscurity, the car that changed the world,ford service manual, owner hand book and ford service bullitins what other books are good to have? any one have any ideas? my reading skills are a lot better than my rightin!
Tin Lizzie by Phillip Van Doren Stern (1955 or so) is a classic, along with the Model T Restoration Manual by Leslie. And anything by Floyd Clymer.
The various repair and refurbishing books by MTFCA are also good.
For reference and practical use, Bruce McCalley's Model T Encyclopedia and all the MTFCA books.
For entertainment, Stan Howe's Adventures of Herman and Freida.
Floyd Clymer's "Henry's Wonderful Model T, 1908 to 1927" (1955) has always been one of my favorites. It is an excellent overall view of model T lore and history. Quite a few great pictures, as well as general information and background.
For accuracy of information, the newer books are better. We really do know a lot more about the whats and whens of model Ts now than what was known fifty years ago.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
The Model T, A Centennial History, by Robert Casey
"The Model T FordOwner" (best of) by Murray Fahnestock is a good read.
For the speedster oriented there are "Model T Ford in Speed and Sport" and "Model T Speed Secrets - The Fast Ford Handbook"
