Hi
Recently got this Model T coupe and am trying to help gather some information about it.

According to the log book. its a 1924 Coupe model.

Engine marking indicates a 1921 model (Dec 8th 1921).
Engine block

There is also a number stamped on cross beam just in front of the seat.Seat Frame stamp

Its had a major restoration a few years ago as all of the chassis looks new

That looks to be a 1926 or 1927 body and fenders.

The picture of the full car is of a 26 or 27.

Yes. 26/27 body with replaced earlier 21 engine.

The absence of a headlight bar says early 1926. Nice car! (Wrong horn, just if you care to know)

Nice car, welcome to the forum! :-)

Body should be a 1926 (no headlight bar) has engine mounted coil box which is 26 or 27. From what I can see of the valve cover looks like one piece with throttle linkage going through. Engine serial number looks to be 5626165 or December of 1921,so it looks like this is what they call a BITSA car (Bitsa different pieces of anything "T" cobbled together).
Are the transmission pedals roughly the same size or are the clutch and brake significantly larger?

The fan pulley mounted on the water outlet is also a 26-27 feature. I'd be interested to see those pedals too.

The generator cut out looks strange and it looks as though there is a water pump on the engine. Not critiquing just informing. Nice looking car wish it were mine. Jim

thanks for all the information. Keep it coming....
As far as I was told, I was build around a 26 model, but needed a 'full restoration' --- hence the various parts...

It has a water pump, starter and generator....

drives very well !pedals

25 or earlier transmission, After-market locking steering wheel (Very Nice)

I think it is a W.P.Seng like this one

Is that a '21 casting date on the block? Looks also to be a '21 serial number.

OK, I need to start reading more of the posts..I see Mark & G.R. beat me to it! My bad!

The presence of a water pump suggests possible cooling troubles. That's often a Band-Aid applied to a bad radiator.

And it looks like you got the earlier transmission too. Hope you have some auxiliary brakes! Large drum rear axle?

The pedal in the last photo indicates it has the later 26-7 transmission, or else the pedals have been swapped.
A minor detail is the longer manifold studs from earlier cars, fitted with the later style clamps designed to be reversed on shorter studs.
It looks a really well done restoration which has produced a nice drive able car. Enjoy.

Allan from down under.

Allen, the last photo is of a different car, just showing an identical accessory steering wheel.
