    Cool pictures everyone!....Not sure mine qualifies as a T (still not sure what to call it), because it's got a 1914 Olds body, but is built on guidelines of a Ford T for the most part..."finally" found a 14' Olds grill...and I love the 2 doors, since I can barely get out of it otherwise, and my wife is short, so I don't have to 'lift' her into it:rolleyes:------just love any T-buckets plain and simple.

    Thanks for the kind comment....the car has wood in the body, but added square tubing to strengthen it...will try to get pics posted today out of photobucket (still learning the process)......having an 'odd' bucket for a ''T-bucket'' configures me to ''jalopy'' status...I feel I fit right in:rolleyes:

    Been away for a while but thought I'd bring this back up near the top. Heading for the Detroit Autorama with the T coupe on Thursday so if any Hambers are around the basement stop by and say Hi. We have a group of about 10 cars from Canada downstairs so we'll be easy to find. Ask for Mike.
     
  12. Go on, post the latest pic of you coupe.....its worth looking at.:D JW

    Wood remover,
    I like that. That's what I have needing, a pickup like that, that I can use for everyday use.
    Sure wish I could come across the parts to build one.

    What is the front axle?

    Presented herewith, for your amusement, is my modified project. I used a S10 engine/trans, because it was laying around the shop, and eight spring suspension. If it worked for Harry Miller at Indy, and all those 30s British sports cars, it should work for me. IMG_3924.JPG IMG_3925.JPG IMG_3928.JPG IMG_3930.JPG

    Was it shorten, or dropped to narrow it? I need to drop my A axle to get the tires to center on the fenders, and to lower the front.
    Or is the offset on factory wires wheels that different, that it doesn't need to be. I see that the '39-40 rearend fits the tire nicely
    I am putting a full fendered '27 T coupe, (hot rod style) together right now.

    These pictures remind me a lot of a 27 T that was the feature of a thread on here that was deleted.
    He had a suspension with multiple springs much like yours and was saying that the car was all over the road, almost uncontrollable.
    The poor design of the suspension was pointed out to him by plenty of members and eventually the thread was deleted.

    Well, if all goes according to plan we will know this summer how it handles.
     
  21. I will check with my dad tomorrow, it is a stock axle maybe I am mistaken on the year !!

    Good luck with it. While you are building, you should definitely figure out a effective panhard bar system for both front and rear.
    The other car had none and that was probably a big part of his problems.
     
  23. One of the factors on the ''other'' car was the springs were not set very far apart and you would be able to steer it like a skate board, that was a lot of the problem, but not all.JW

    The rear Panhard bar is already in place. Still considering how to deal with the front.

    I don't see a panhard bar there, just the lower tie rod for the steering.
     
  26. Much the same as this one. JW

    My best friend built this T a few years back and this had a same set up. No panhard bar needed as the springs kept the axle centered. This car rode and drove great. John\'s 23 Spdstr.JPG

  28. JW, mine doesn't have a panhard bar and it handles great, no bump steer, tracks straight and tru. I can take my hands off the wheel at 100kph, slam on the brakes and it doesn't move an inch off track.
