Did ageing travelling snake oil salesman from the Wild West end up running advertising firms in Los Angeles, Boston and New York? What's your favourite Model T accessory hyperbole?
A friend has this spring set up on one of his T's. He may have it at regional meet this week, if he does I will post a pick
There was a car made in Aus in the 20s that had that interconnected suspension.
Manuel in Oz
Now wait a minute ... if you are going to reference a snake oil salesman .... you should, at the very least, illustrate with a traveling medicine show that used a model T Ford as the mobile stage! Check this out.
Dan, make sure you go for a drive in it.
Mark, thanks for the Dr. Bumstead(!) link.
Believe the Citron had a suspension system vaguely similar. Not an add-on though it was the suspension.
So did the Curved Dash Oldsmobile
"What's your favourite Model T accessory hyperbole?"
Well, it's not really an accessory, and technically it's not hyperbole, but I have always believed that the term "One Man Top" was the biggest exaggeration that Ford ever concocted. I've yet to see the "one man" who can do it. I have done it myself, but it was NOT pretty or even close to the illustrated method. I do not consider it a success and hope that nobody was watching.
I think only about a week ago, somebody linked to a "for sale" site for a model T with that suspension system on it. It was a nice car, I wonder if it sold?
Still for sale Wayne:
Looks like a good deal for something unique too. Those springs would be extra neat on a speedster where they would be on display for all to see.
Thank you Tim! Someone should buy that. Fair price for what it is ('26 coupe). Looks like it should clean up fairly nice. I can't buy it, and do not need any two passenger car at this point. Otherwise. I would be considering it. I don't know how the ride is with that suspension, but I would love to have one and find out.
