I have a 1927 Fordor sedan. How many people have the Fordor's? There don't seem to be many of the Ford Fordor Model T's around and there don't seem to be many 1926/27's around. Do you have a photo of your FORDOR ?
We took our car with us this last May. Six days driving it in Yellowstone, then the town of Custer and Sioux Falls and also in Devils tower.
Mr. Thum, You have a great car.
Great photo Steve, very cool!
I have a '27 Fordor and have owned it for many years. You can see a picture of it on my profile.
I have a 24 with the aluminum body panels and doors, i have pictures but can't post them, i have been unable to find a resizer that works on 10.
Mine (1927 original black paint) full of grandkids
Great Fordor you have there!
There are fewer "Closed"Ts because so few were made when you compare production numbers to the "Open" cars, and, they cost more money,possibly influencing the budget minded buyer.
There are also a few drawbacks to a closed model, one is weight (although the Fordor made use of aluminum body panels) the closed (heaver) cars had to make due with the same 20 horsepower motor. They can get a little warm in the Summer, even with all windows open, and the noise level in the interior is a little higher.
Now with the above being said, I'm partial to the closed cars being the owner of a 1925 Tudor. Someday if another T is in the cards it will be a Brass Era 1914 touring, but I will always have a closed car.
My Mother won a 27 roadster from the local Ford dealer in a raffle (in 27). Because she was a school teacher in a one room school house and had to drive at least five miles one way to school, down dusty or muddy roads depending on conditions and in the winter time (before global warming), her Dad paid the dealer $25.00 to upgrade her from the roadster to a coupe.
Ric, Use ( PAINT ) after you open it in it, go to image, then to stretch/ skew, stretch is in %, type in the same (%) in both horizontal and vertical. I usually have to reduce mine and I use 45%.
Lets try again,24 Fordor
Anybody interested in getting a Fordor? Especially near the West coast? Might I suggest checking Ted Johnson's ad on our site?
No pictures yet (it is his son's and some distance away). And I don't think I have ever seen the car, so I may not be much help. But Ted and his sons are good T people.
Now, continue posting pictures of Fordors! I love seeing them.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
I have an early 26 Fordor.
Manufactured, February 1926. Garage kept for 90 years and never restored. Only thing not original is a layer protective red paint, nicely applied by a prior owner. Body and body wood is in great condition. Jim Patrick
The one with wire wheels is my '23 sitting next to a '25 on the Land of Enchantment Tour this past June
Bryce your photo of your 23 sitting next to a 25 clearly show the distinction of the low cowl T's from the high cowl 24-25 T's.
Great looking cars and a good clear lesson of the noticeable differences.
26 in my shed:
And her body style appropriate "jewelry":
I have a '26 Fordor. My granddad bought it new.
Any of you 4 door owners have an original upholstered passenger front door panel? Red stripe that is collecting dust?
A little grouse hunting last fall. The gun is 6 years older than the car. Model 12 Winchesters are my other weakness. My other T has some Fordor body parts, too.
