Would Love to see your TOY Model Ts or a
Collection of Toys if you have any.
What is the oldest, Rarest etc...
I have a couple of Decanters and toys.
Would love to know what else is out there.
Last year in a weak moment, I bought one of the supposed dealer promo salt and pepper shaker Ts on Ebay:
That reminds me, I have a photo etched early touring car kit somewhere that I still need to build.
Wow, very nice so far. Anymore
Here is what I have. A reproduction cast iron penny bank. Pencil sharpener,debatable if the sharpener is a Model T, and a 1925 Model T Roadster model kit with Laurel and Hardy figures.The model kit is a favorite of mine since I have a 1925 Roadster and Laurel and Hardy are my favorite comedians.Only wish I still had my wind up Tin toy Model T's from when I was a kid.They'd zip around the floor,go in circles and zip around again. No batteries just wind it up.
Tim - like this?
Hey, a 2 lever!
My dad gave me this little Matchbox "models of yesteryear" Model T touring when I was a little kid. It was my prized possession and I credit my love of Antique automobiles to this toy. None of my older members of my family or friends as a youngster was into antique cars, but because of this little T, I couldn't wait to be old enough to own my very own "Old Time Car" as I used to call them. I bought my first T at 17 yrs old and built a speedster which I still have 35 yrs later.
Motorized Model T coupe. Not sure the vintage, but I would think late 1960's.
The link below will take you to one of the best toy/miniature Model T cars I have ever seen. This thing actually runs! Someone put a lot of time and effort into this.
A friend made these for me.
Dallas, those wooden toy cars are really cool!
A screenshot of the model I linked to above.
Have more than 1 toy:
And yes there is more
Just a small portion of the collection
I like these tin keywind "Flivers" produced by Bing in Germany. They were made as a coupe, roadster, touring and sedan. Nice detail. It's still possible to find them in very nice condition too.
Terry,when were the key wind T's made. I know that I had two in the early 1960's. Made very well.
The main rod is loose on the other side of your 1947 American Flyer Atlantic engine! I can get you the special nut to keep it on, if you need it.
Here's some of my T models with a Model A I restored some decades ago (long since sold off).
The Pickup with a more appropriate background!!
I found this model at a junk store years ago.Wheel broke,parts missing. I kept it a long time and found a fellow on another website that said he would fix it for me.And he did a fine job but just could not find a hood for it.
I see another 1 posted above like this I was just given last week. I think it says 1955 on the bottom..
The all black large T was my brothers from about 1965, the other 2 large ones I got at a garage sale they are about 10 inches long
My father's toys: (1) Buddy L Model T Coupe; (2) a wind-up tin Model T Center-door Sedan with funny 1920's slang expressions hand painted on the panels. Such expressions include:
"This is a Henry, not a Lizzie"
"Shakes well while using"
"Still going strong"
"Chickens, here's your coupe"
"Leap In Lina"
"Honest weight, no springs"
All this nostalgia and being so close to Christmas has me looking for that Model T tinplate I had as a kid.
Re: Model T Toys - Ive been collecting plastic and die-cast metal Model T toys for over 60 years and currently have around 100 toy models in scales of 1:12, 1:16, 1:24, 1:32, and 1:43. I use the 1:43's with my "027 guage" Lionel electric train which I set up around out Christmas tree annually. Lot's of memories with all these toys. Also have 3 real Model T's and a Model A.
Here are some more of My T toys.
This is a model of my first attempt at building a speedster.
Note to David D, the AF went to auction and I no longer have it. Thank you for the offer.
You are missing a foot of the white stuff!
Tom Butterworth - All I can say is,.....WOW!
Thanks to ALL who responded. Some great toys out there.
Check this model out
Scroll down on previous link to see details of build
Here are a few photo's of some of my toys, Bob
There are some non Model T's but a lot of them are and mixed in the cases
Sorry for the sideways photo - can't seem to get it to post in proper orientation.
Here is one of mine. If you subscribe to the Times there will be an article about some of my other 1:24 scale T's coming soon. Please forgive the "brand X" Thomas Flyer.
Replying to Tom Butterworth's post above - very nice speedster model! After seeing your model, it reminded me that we have the "full size" model of what looks like the same car here at the Ford dealership where I work in Dallas, Texas. Just thought you would enjoy seeing it too.
Mr. Bergstadt, that is borderline show-off. None the less, most impressive. My envy is showing.
I think Bob just won.
Mark, Rats, thought I'd found another T guy who also was into American Flyer! Oh well. . . .
I believe that may be the car built by Bill Barth that won Grand Champ at Greenfield Village Old Car Festival in the early 80's. It had headlights that turned with the steering. It looks as if the one you've pictured has that feature. NICE!
Here is a little Truck I made for my son almost 50 years ago.
We still have it. ( Pictured Below )
Around 10 years ago I made some for his sons.
Best regards, John Page , Australia
Here is one I started seven years ago.
And two more that I made for my Grandsons.
Jerry you are right Bill Barth built that car. When I first meet Bill he had just finished it. I was hooked and built my first T the red speedster.
I'm really digging those home made wooden Model T toys. I wonder if the magazine would be interested in running an article with plans on how to make them in an issue a couple months before Christmas?
Well they can always take a survey to find out.
