Wow! This is what we all dream about, having the complete history of our cars.

Thanks for Posting

I love my roadster, but i have always hankered for a 15 touring...definitely next on my purchase list to keep Mildred company. :-)

Is there a service that can research previous owners by VIN?

Nice car, very inaccurate statements from the owner regarding the paint and upholstery.

Chris: Unfortunately not. We do know the first owner, though:

















Ford :-)

That's nice... My '15 touring was bought new by my Great Great grandfather in Blanchard Michigan and as been in the family ever since

Watching that video brings a bit of sadness. I have lost our long term family owned TT.

The truck (1923) was bought new as a chassis here in Keene by a local company. The body was installed nearby. My grandfather bought the truck off the used car lot at the local Chevrolet dealer in 1930. Grandpa put it up on blocks in the barn in 1948. We "woke it up" in 1967.

Fast forward to 2010. Mom has passed. Dad died in 2000. He wanted my son to have the truck when he was old enough. My estranged brother got the truck. Three years later he dies and I don't find out about his passing for about six months. Attempts to contact his widow have been fruitless. She and the truck have vanished.

So to some this will sound like sour grapes--

In 2014, I presented the same form of documentation as presented by the video to a Commonwealth Historic Preservation Board - similar situation car never left its neighbourhood, documented original owner, and history of the vehicle - all to list a Model T on the national register -- similar to what Hagerty is doing. So with the youtube presentation I am not that impressed with the Hagerty presentation. Preparing a history of a car is basically genealogy of a family member.

What does it mean my 19 can be put on some type of national historic register because I have the complete owner ship history with the original registration, transfer documents, and bill of sales?

Will that mean i can't add a water pump, change the color, or replace the sparkplugs without getting permission from some historic committee?

No you can add the water pump or put on electric windscreen wipers.

The issue is the Historic Preservation officers in each state have never been asked by folks to add an unto mobile - until 2014 in Pennsylvania.

Nice old car. I like it. I dont have a well documented T. My model A coupe had every piece of original documentation from the original family. The car was still in horrible mechanical condition front to back. Now after many $$s and several years of restoration i drive the car anywhere anytime. Tim

As long as the current owner of that '15 is happy, that is all that matters, but there are a number of issues with it.
