Pulled this out of a barn in February of last year.
This is where I'm at currently- runs real good.
Wish I could make such progress. Nice job.
Lookin' good Tim, keep us posted!
Looks great Tim. Fun stuff...
Great thing about Model T's is that a guy can restore one without a lot of sophisticated shop equipment and lifting devices.
Great pics and a very nice job going on there!
For your viewing pleasure...
Had to remove a lot of rot from the lower portion of the passenger side body panel and weld in a sacrificial piece...
Just received the upholstery kit. Now I know what I'll be doing this weekend.
Is that a 48 Ford Sedan you have in your Garage? Looks neat with the fender skirts.
46- flathead with duals that sound like a million dollars.
In '46, when the auto makers began to make cars again, everybody needed one. Folks were driving rattle traps with leather under the rod caps and 50 weight in the oil pan. But the new cars were in such short supply that you almost had to be the dealer's brother in law to get one. To pad their profits, the dealers loaded up the cars with dealer installed accessories which you had to accept. Fender skirts and sun visors were on all the cars.
Somewhat true Lester.
Our local Ford dealer did not add anything. My Dad bought a new '46 Ford on my 10th birthday.
He ordered a fordor, a coupe sedan came in its place.
It was take it or wait some more.
We took it. It had a radio.
The local chevrolet/Buick dealer put dual spot lights, fender skirts, a radio, fog lights and mud flaps on every car they sold.
A lot.of GM people bought Fords that year. And pontiacs & plymouths.
My Father in law wanted a pickup in '46, He had a 39 or 40 sedan (I forget, and no one is around to re-tell the story) and was able to trade straight across, as folks wanted cars and used cars were not price controlled like the new ones were.
In 46 all makes were warmed over 42s. Studebaker was the first to have an all new post war car.
...replacing rotten wood.
