My 1918 T with 4 valve RAJO, counterbalanced crank, lighten flywheel. Gary in MN
1927 T roadster with De Paul OHV on a T block with A crank and rods. Gary in MN
Damn, I'm really liking the 27 above with the 32 frame and that serious T engine in it. How much power will that make? Does it use a regular T planetary trans with the hog's head and all that or does it convert to a clutch somehow? That looks like some serious machinery on a T block, wild.
My 23 Parade car. Merry Christmas everybody!
Dual plug head, V8 pressure plate and trans, friend machined a new flywheel. HP, I am not sure, the complete engine and trans weighs in at 700 lbs. Starter housing and oil pan...Himico from the 1920's..... are cast iron. Gary
Here's a picture of my car. Either I need a wide angle lens, a bigger garage, or to get off my butt and finish the thing to get it out of the garage.
goldmountain, tell us more about your coupe and where are you located? Looks good............
84 + ten of you guys may have a few more. Still think there's more. BTT before I go to bed.
Thanks to everybody that has played so far.
Put me down for a quarter. I'll post pics tomorrow when I take a couple. It just the engine\trans, firewall, and the front 6ft of frame. Thinking old tractor conversion?
Here's my 17 T. This is the only driver T I've owned. I can't begin to count the number of T bodies I've had. I must say I'm amazed at all the stock or near stock T's shown. Almost like a Teekers forum instead of a hot rod forum. Teeker ie: Restorer of Antiques
My 26, now going back together after fixing some bad things from a past life. JW
I know of at least another 14 HAMB T's that have not shown up here yet. JW
The fauxbanger. Now tucked away for winter, but looking forward to the trip to Autorama in March.
91 plus a few extras for you hoarders. I should have known a lot of you guys would have more than 3 and provided for that in the poll. Sorry.
96+ I know there are more.
My mostly stock 27 Roadster. Also have a '16 speedster in the works.
Here is my pile of parts, just waiting on me to get over this damn sciatica so I can finish the motor swap in the '50.........
Just got over a bad bout of sciata. Left leg. 3 traction sessions at the chiropractor fixed it up. 10 cords of firewood did it.
I actually think the prices of Ts have gone down significantly and dont see them going back up. There was a time in the early 70's when a T coupe or roadster was the hot ticket.....practically as popular as a 32. Unfortunately not now. I dont think I will ever get out of my 26 coupe what it was worth even just 10 years ago.
I blame sitting on the floor fixing Christmas lights and squatting funny on the roof.
My neighbors wife is a massage therapist, that works better for me than the chiropractor.
I'm not wasting this time! I'm polishing my Weiand valve covers

1926 on model a frame, french flathead and 39 running gear.

My friend has aT for cruising and had aA pickup convertible that burned in his other storage unit. It is a good reminder for me to keep my toys separated.
I come up with 117 plus a few for you more than 3 guys. I'll bet there are still more from the HAMB. I wish I could find that model A thread that took the similar poll. I have used every search phrase I know to use to no avail. Anybody remember that thread? They asked for cars by year - 28, 29, 30, 31. As I remember there were at least 2400 model a's accounted for. 117 T's only puts us at 4-5% of the model A guys. I expected way more than 120 or so. I guess we are a smaller group than I thought.
1920 my Dad picked up a few years ago. In my shop now & it’s got a ”Ruckstell “ rear axle. Flux
