I wonder if I could call my local Ford dealer and find out what oil is best adapted for my Model T?

I had a suspicion that this was another classic case of a dealer
talking the big talk and getting scarce when you need them !

Let us get you in the door and then we can really start selling you the services you probably don't really need. Today you can buy the "free oil change for life" to get you sucked in to the service department. Great for the dealer, pretty iffy for the consumer.

I dunno Walt,....??? I bought a brand new 2008 Mazda Miata from Fugate Ford/Mazda in Enumclaw and after 8 years, they still honor my $299 "oil change for life" thing! Actually, a couple years ago, the card that the service writer fills out each time I have the car serviced was all filled up. He gave me a new blank card so as to continue making entries every time I have the car serviced, and I noticed that the front of that new card no longer says $299,.... it says $399. I mentioned that to the service writer and he said,.... "yeah, and not only that, but we don't even offer that "free for as long as you own it" plan anymore either"! But guess what,..... they STILL honor it! One of the best purchases I ever made! I really think it has to do with the "credibility" of the particular dealer. And, I'm not gullible enough to believe that the fact that I've bought three brand new cars from that dealer just might have something to do with it too! Whatever,.....harold

Looks like a blown opportunity for the Model T hobby. This dealer service ad could've settled the "Which oil is best?" argument once and for all. Sadly, they only tease us with the lure of them being the supplier of the right oil.

I'm very thankful that we don't have this problem with my non-Ford antique car. The period Maxwell advertising emphatically recommends Havoline brand oil.

Fred: I think I see your problem. You're in New Hampshire and Berlin Auto Sales is in Conneticut. You have to dial the area code first.

Area Code?? What's that?? Don't you just ask the operator for the the Connecticut exchange??
BTW, I can still call my childhood phone number and talk to my brother: CEdar5-2721. (He lives in the family resort)

The only Ford dealer that I could find in a search of that area is the legendary Tasca Ford. I wonder if they took over Berlin Auto Sales.
