There are owners who ask questions about the origins and production of their cars. But with out a build sheet /delivery sheet the car is an orphan.
To put it another way, those who own post 1911 Model T's are at a loss for having production information. Below are comments found on "The Henry Ford" (Museum) Site.
From the site:
"In the summer of 1970, a museum fire destroyed many Ford Motor Company production records. The table below indicates which records still exist.
Ford Model T Years - 1909-1911. Serial numbers 1,119 to 70,920."
A copy of the production card for the "first" Model T is available as:
Production card for first Model T 27 September 1908
"This is the Ford Motor Company record of the very first Model T which was assembled on September 27, 1908 at the Piquette plant in Detroit. The production card lists it as Model 2090, car #1. It had 4 cylinders, 2 levers (the second for reverse) and 2 foot pedals. 1,000 of these early T's were produced."
It can be viewed at
As stated those with later T's are at a bit of a disadvantage when seeking historical information about their car(s).
So, can older documentation be found to supply similar information found on factory production cars be put together?
