lets see some model Ts "the real steel"
Joey Tee, nice C-dan, welcome to the H.A.M.B., I am finishing up my all steel 26 P/U. I am about 2 hours south of you, my father in law is in Deland. When I get my rig done, I'll P/M. you, see if you wanna have a cold one and cruise A1A, Noticed something in the back window, Faith is Cool, glad your a believer!!!, BDM.
Mines not favored by many. But I sure do like it.
On the road with a tag this week after a year of money and labor.
Oh and I read the trim ring thread and put mine on.
Nice job gasser, like the stance
Tugmaster, a Ford in a Ford, awesome T. BDM
i went driving around my area to find stuff. and i found a 1925ish model tt C cab truck! all complete sitting in a guys yard! may go after it next year!
I'd like it more with a Flatty, but it still looks really cool to me. Sweet little T.
Thanks guys. I was busy racing off road motorcycles when a guy at work asked me if i wanted a lil hot rod project. I went and looked at it and had to have it. I really wasnt prepared for what I was biting off. It was a frame, body, engine and trans.
I have had to address everything on it. The body had never been mated to the frame. It was really an awful start. But I pressed on mostly by myself with just a 1 car garage.
The compliments are appreciated more than I can say. At first I thought I had a Rrod. Then the Rrod site ran me off so I came here after seeing this site get bashed over there. It was then I realized I liked traditionals way more than the other stuff. Mines not a real traditional, nor will it ever be.
Guy I got it from has a 32 with a flatty and yes, I wish this lil car had one as well. It came with this 4 bolt, double hump head, solid lift 350. If it is on par with the rest of the car when I bought it, I will be addressing that soon.
Actually not a Ford drivetrain. it has a 65 Buick 300 with a 2spd switchpitch trans. Todd
how about t trucks
My '26 Roadster is all original Henry Ford steel...Dearborn born and raised!
I like it, and congratulations on getting it going.
Got a tag!
Those are some cool T's.
Mr ModelT's car is so damn nice. Wow
Model T's are under rated!
You know, the front of that looks an aweful lot like a '28 A pick-up or wagon.
Monday this week
yes you would be correct proportions were to stretched with the big olds and the small cowl ( in my oppinion) so with help from a good friend we chopped the front section of the T's a pillars off and welded on A fronts so it now all bolts up perfectly. not as easy as just getting a new set of pillars around here
So, what your telling me is that you have T and A?
pretty much, its a bit of everything
My t. Its a bit of an older pic. I know i know, its low.
I'm pretty sure my grand dad started with a model T to make this car. Crude I know but the spirit was willing.
Here is one of mine. Started with the front of a 26 touring, the rest is made by yours truly. Sold it, cause that is what I built it for. Going to do another to keep someday.
1927 T Coupe
DId you buy this one out of Charleston? I use to see it down here.
Here's my new one:
fender lizard is that bagged? also is it a driver yet?
Sure looks like JeffreyJames old ride
Here's my '24. ALL steel.
