Sometimes it;s better to leave the women at home. Heat, heat you DON'T NEED HEAT IN A MODEL T, If Henry wanted you to have heat, he would have supplied it. Trying to explain the wisdom of Henry Ford to my daughter Cyndy, why there is no heat in a Model T Ford. Thatís because YOU DONíT NEED ITĒ.

Happy motoring,

Warren

You don't need it and when you do have it, it is never enough.

A fun video.
Thanks

Warren..cool video. Unfortunately for me, I DO need it as my herniated disc between L4-L5 gets all "pulled outa whack" when my back gets cold and muscles start to contract. It can get so bad I can barely walk, so needless to say I really go into hibernation in the winter. I'm glad you have the wherewithall, both physically and materially, to enjoy a T ride in winter! Wish I could. I would love to go to AZ in the winter to visit my parents, as the warmth there made all the back aches go away. I'd move there but the wife won't let me! :-)

Thanks to all for your kind words and useful information.

Tim, your my kind od guy, we have the same problem with our wives.

All that being said, what exactly don't you understand about my statement, "If Henry wanted you to have heat, he would have supplied it." :>)

Happy motoring,

Warren

While flushing out the coolant system today, my son read the directions on the bottle of flush cleaner. Pour into radiator and with engine running, turn heater to full on. Well, I watched him pour in the bottle, start the engine and stare at the dash looking for the heater controls. I had to break the bad news to him. No heater. Then explain about heater cores and why the coolant flush wanted the heater on, etc.

It's a learning curve for both of us.

OH, wait. He did!!!
As Kenneth said above, the gap between the firewall and the floorboard lets in tons of heat!
As Dallas said, it's just at the wrong time of the year.

This is how you dress for those cool weather days that may happen during the winter months in New Hampshire.

A well known Forum contributor from Gawler South Australia refers to the summer heat in a Model T similar to being in a fan forced oven! Eh Allan

There is a heater in a Model T...it's commonly called the engine...usually the problem is trying to keep all the heat from the engine off you, not the other way round. Some of it does tend to sneak it's way up past the pedals and from around the firewall though.

Or you could do what my Granddad did...take the top floorboard off during winter month...plenty of heat come off both the engine and the exhaust manifold to keep you right toasty (sometimes waaay too toasty and start feeling like you'd rather ride on the running boards). :-)
