Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Barn find of 3 Ts in Vermont

I spent yesterday with my good friends Ken, Paul, Mike & Pete, uncovering and pulling 3 different Model Ts from a barn in Vermont. We had a lot of fun working on getting them out in the sunshine, even dismantling part of the barn and then reinstalling all those old barn broads. I can hardly wait to see the finished results, Ken is going to build a snowmobile with his TT engine #12680706, Paul is planning on restoring his unique December 1915 Model T tractor (which we removed from the second floor of the barn) and new friend Dick got an early T frame & chassis which we could not read the engine number. It was a great way to spend the day and a very rewarding one as well.

Happy motoring,

Warren

Burger, thanks for sharing "the power of positive thing" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ru0TrbQew-s


As for Mark, Dennis and Richard thank you for your comments. Paul really lucked out, with a honeycomb brass radiator and brass carburetor. Not to mention "the story behind the story".

Happy motoring,

Warren

Pullford tractor? Where is our tractor historian Ron.

Would LOVE to own that tractor, if only I had a place to put it......

Damn good find gentleman. I would have loved to been there just for the comradery. Sounds like a great day.

What a great way to spend the day! And thanks for sharing the adventure. It shows that there are still a few out there in barns, lofts, etc.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

That is a great find and right in my neck of the woods. Nice to see a group working together with the intent of putting all of the T's back in use.
The tractor conversion does not look like Pullford large gears have external teeth and the hubs look smaller the steel wheels have rolled edges Pullfords I have seen have flat steel wheel rings. Are the caps on the end of the axles marked? Again great find good luck with your projects. I will be looking for updates as the project move forward.

There was a crew of 5 Ken, Paul, Mike, Pete and myself, working on the TT and tractor. Dick was there working on getting his T out of another building, so we just gave him a hand. The owners George & Judy were great folks, helping in anyway they could. They let us remove the barn-broad so we could get the tractor out, supplied us with drinking water while we working and then feed us a delicious lunch.

Happy motoring,

Warren

I have it on very good authority that it is a Montgomery Ward kit.

Happy motoring,

Warren

Would defer to your good authority. Definitive proof is bull gear as the two kits are very similar. Montgomery Ward will have an MW with a part number cast into bull gear.

I want to hear more about the old barn "broads"!!

Frank, the old barn broads are the ones that were removed in order to get the tractor out of the barn and then Paul put them back in their original place.

Happy motoring,

Warren

Great photo Steve, thanks for posting. Looks like they are in need of a lot of barn broads. Maybe you could check out that barn today for some hidden treasures.

Happy motoring,

Warren
