Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Before and after pics...
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Michael Warren- Huntington, VT on Saturday, November 26, 2016 - 06:26 pm:

I am getting about half way done my 1926 Model T Touring project. I have the Chassis all done, and the engine cleaned up and put back in the frame. I just need to finish some of the wiring, paint a few misc. engine parts (trans cover, starter, a few brackets, etc.) then the only thing I have left to do is paint the body and reassemble... I think that most of the body work will wait until spring but I am hoping to have the car running in the next few weeks.

In the mean time, let's see some posts of before and after pics of your projects. This will help motivate me and remind me that I'm not the only one who has been in this boat before.

Mike

Mark,

That looks nice! Came out great! Did it come with all the parts (fenders, top irons, etc.) or did you need to buy them all? Mine was missing a bunch of parts when I bought it. I've spent more than I wished to on mine so far but I do it a little bit at a time so it doesn't seem too bad...

If I'd known then, what I know now, this would have been a parts car.
But knowing that makes me twice as proud.
Cheers,
Rob

Michael, mine was pretty complete as far as bodywork and mechanicals. It was missing its top bows and top (it started life as a touring car but had been made into a pickup long before I got it), so I bought top irons on Ebay, and top sockets and bows from Lang's. I re-upholstered the seat base and back with a Cartouche kit (came with the car) and installed a Classtique top kit.

These are great pics! Thanks for sharing. I am hoping to get back out in the garage tomorrow night and get some more done on mine. Almost ready to test fire it... Hoping that I can hear it run before the snow stays for the next 4 months...

I haven't done a T that was bad enough before to make a real contrast with after, but I think the before and after shots of my Packard show a bit of a difference.

My first T was the Coupe, We picked it up in Duluth MN in 1975.



Here it is two years late on the front lawn.



A few year later we bought the 17 Touring from Al Vivian in San Bernadino



Ain't she cute. This was it a few years later, I think it is now in England.



I can't find early pictures of the Speedster, 14 Touring or Town Car.....

However, I must issue my own disclaimer ! As a guy with
too many project vehicles, I bought the "before" truck first,
and then decided to shorten the restoration process by
purchasing the "after" truck as a way to not add another
major project to the list of cars the wifeperson sees plugging
the shop. I recently sold the "before" truck, as I really don't
want two nearly identical trucks. While it was fairly "pretty"
when I got it, the "after" truck is not restored and a lot of
detail and fine tuning was done to make it a decently reliable
old truck.

Currently building a race engine for it to push the high speed
gears and overdrive. I plan to sweep the Montana 500 TT Division. :-)

Oh. John. I don't feel so bad no more.
Nice thread!
