So you own a 19** Model T. But do you really? You know by appearance it is a Model T Ford.

The car was constructed by the Ford Motor Company between 1908 and 1927. But when the company began building the cars, the model year was based on the motor number, later the motor number was added as the frame number too.

Then there was the issue of FMC suggesting that if you changed the motor of your 1912 Model T Ford, you use a stencil stamp set to place your original model year block number on to your replacement block.

Then if you do own a 1912 Model T Ford, are the valves open or closed, does it have a generator and starter, electric lights or acetylene?

Oh well, it's just a Model T.

That floor is too shiny for a T. Get it out of there fast before it becomes accustomed to such a nice home!!

well, not sure what the question is, but the motor currently in my TT project is a 26-27 style motor but has a 1921 motor number leading me to believe it has been a replacement motor at some point in its life. - Matt

George,

Not sure what your point is... I don't worry about it. I just drive my cars.
