Here is a picture of two 1926 headlights. They are both Ford script. Is the rounded one perhaps Canadian?
Tom, wonders never cease!
Our T, December 1926, New Orleans plant is neither but more like the one on the left.
That is a difference I look for on '15/'16/'17 buckets. Did not expect it to be happening ten years later!
Tom's photo is a fender mounted lamp (early 1926 model year) whereas Vern"s is a bar mounted unit
I think you might be looking one lamp made by E&J and another made by Brown.
How many companies were used in '26?
Earlier lamps have some markings around the thimble hole.
: ^ )
Vern's lamp is the 1927 style. I found three 1926 buckets in my stash, all of them of the left style in Tom's picture. Two are marked "Ford Brown" and the other is marked "Ford E.&J. 440. Pat. April 14 - 14".
How about the different mounting holes. Have one that has square bolt holes (carriage bolt?) and one that has round holes. Think they're both 26/27.
All of mine have square holes.
I was thinking the flat style would be Brown made. Interesting that E & J is that way too.
Our '26 TT is an early version, and has the same headlights and supports as the '25 coupe. Suspicions are that previous model parts were used up before any 'improved' came along...
The TT never used the improved style fenders or headlamps. About the only improved style feature on TT's except the engine was the oval switch panel, but it wasn't used until 1927 model year.
Another Improved Car era option for the TT was the Improved Gas Turban.
I realize that the topic is 1926, but my '27 looks like Vern's.
Here are my early (November '25) '26 headlights and one I picked up somewhere (the rusty one).They all have the Ford script on the support that wraps around the bucket. All have square holes. The rusty one is not flat where the socket attaches where the other ones do. Two drain holes in the the early '26 buckets.
