Re: 1917-25 Ford with colors?

The standard factory color for those years would have been black. However, Ford did do custom colors for fleet purchases. T's had factory color options, I believe, in the 1909-1912 model years and then again in the 1926-27 model years. Keeping in mind that the 1926 model year cars went on sale in th...

Keep in mind that the diameter of fan hub and the crank belt pulleys were different between 1915 and 1927, so if using a 1915 fan hub with 1927 crank pulley it will more than likely result in a nonstandard belt sizing.
