The 1926 has arrived safe and sound.
Seasonal greetings to one and all and lang may yer lum reek !!!!
Looks like Neal Tuckett's place. Nice one!
Royce, young Neil was driving the Machine
Nicely done. That is a wonderful shade of Maroon.
I always enjoy seeing other Fordors. Thanks for sharing.
Very nice Norrie, Best of luck with your new '26 Fordor. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year ( remember not to eat all the Haggis, save some for me).
here's my new '26 touring, I think I will be able to pick it up next Saturday
Translation for my non Scottish friends...........
A Scotticism is a phrase or word which is characteristic of dialects of the Scots language. ... Lang may yer lum reek" (a Hogmanay greeting, implying "May you never be without fuel for your fire!", but more literally translates to "Long may your chimney smoke!")
Aye, 'tis a bonnie 4 door sedan
Congratulations Norrie !! That is a nice looking ride. Enjoy, but check all the nuts and bolts along with the cotter keys first.
Don thanks very much for the advice the car has been undergoing restoration since 1977 perhaps a little bit earlier it appears to be 98% complete with a little bit of wiring and interior to finish.
Rest assured I will start at the top to the bottom and check everything.In so far as I can tell the quality of the restoration has been amazing done to an extremely high standard with no expense spared.
Oh man that cleaned up nice! Looks like you scored.
Congratulations on your really nice Christmas present!
And if anyone should ask you about your natural rather than black wheels you can refer them to the Wheels section under: http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/U-Z.htm#wheels That states for 1925:
21” wheels finished in natural wood were available in addition to the standard black.
And under the notes section for 1925 at: http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/doc25.htm it has:
May 14, 1925 Factory Letter: ...
NATURAL WOOD WHEELS announced. T-291-1 front wheel, balloon, with hub and less rim, at $5.50 each. T-2815G rear wheel, balloon, with hub and less rim, at $5.50 each. These were sold as a set to the dealer for $13.20. They were to be sold to the customer on an exchange basis (for black balloon wheels) for $15.00. Ford would allow a credit of $6.00 for the returned set.
And then under 1926 at: http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/U-Z.htm#wheels it has:
21” wood wheels were the same as 1925 except for the 11” rear brake drums.
And at: http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/doc26.htm
MAR 22, 1926 Letter 1463 from the Fargo branch
"We can now furnish khaki or black top boots, khaki gypsy curtains and windshield wings for the open models; automatic windshield wipers, open and closed types; and natural wood wheels in unlimited quantities and expect to be able to furnish bumpers, snubbing units and the combination stop and tail lamp assembly within a very short time, therefore, we ask that you make immediate necessary arrangements to line up your organization to properly merchandise the complete line of Ford accessories."

Norrie, I'm not finding you on Facebook now. If you can find me send another friends request please. Thx.
Nice Fordor Norrie! Is that the one from Duluth? That took awhile to ship.
Happy New Year!
