My 1916 T turns 100 today! Engine cast 11/22/15 but darned if I could start him up in this cold weather so to honor him I took the '14 for a spin around the block and he ran beautifully! A little chilly on the face but nice and sunny. BTW, still trying to find a home for Old Joe.
Happy birthday old Joe! Hey Bill, try putting a 100w lamp (I use one of those painters lamps or a brooders lamp) on the head/manifold area for about an hour. Jack up one wheel and open the carb a half turn extra and I bet he'll start. Good luck. Now get going before it gets dark! LOL He looks good! And he wants to go for a spin.
The coldest i ever ran our 14 was 7 above zero and it started with no help.Bud in Wheeler,Mi.
Two nice looking Ts!
He can live at my house for nothing. Send him over. I will provide him with gas, oil, and antifreeze. My other gal in the garage will keep him company.
He is too old to reproduce isn't he???
I don't know, Dave, but when he can get going he has a lot of pep in his step so anything's possible!
Bill, Did you name that after the guy that found it for you? cute name!
Actually, the old fella who owned it just happened to be a Joe as well and I took to calling him that every month when I called him to ask if he were ready to sell it to me or not! I'd tell my boys "Time to call Old Joe about his car." When he finally did sell it to me, I had no problem naming the car - especially since you were the one who gave me the lead on it! Thanks again, Joe Bell!
Nice. Happy Birthday! I love to see Model T's turning One Hundred years old and still on the road. My 1914 Runabout Engine was cast exactly two years to the day before yours. 11/22/1913, Exactly 50 years to the day before President Kennedy was assassinated. My T was made on 12/16/1913. #395707. Happy Touring!
Beautiful 1916 Bill.
I wish I could squeeze it into my budget.
