26-27 Canadian Accessory Ford Stop/Tail Light

Post by Humblej » Thu Nov 14, 2019 8:25 am

My earlier post about Canadian improved car accessory bumpers got me thinking about other accessory differences between USA and Canadian/import model T's. I know there was a different stop/tail light but have never seen one, or may have seen one but didnt know what it was. If someone could post some pictures I would like to see them. Besides stop light and bumper medallions were there other Ford accessory differences?

Would think this Australian Parts and Price list would be from products supplied by Ford of Canada, as export to English speaking countries. Shows a variety of accessory parts for the T. April 1927,

Looks like it is an add-on to the stock Canadian tail light.

Hell Jeff,
I tried posting this one yesterday when I sent the previous information. It would not load!!

The dual Tail Light & Stop Light were made by " CLASCO".

Will try again. Best regards, John.

John,
I don't know the origin of the hubs, a period accessory? they are made from aluminiun. This photo was taken in 1963 and they are on the car then. The T has some interesting history, staged for a photo's on the Geelong Ford production line for the 50th and 75th.
I'm aiming for Geelongs Ford 100th on the National Rally.

Those hubcaps look like accessory ones that came with hub covers that covered the hub and bolts like these. http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/59 ... 1460498107
