The 1923 Ford Model T Touring Car (10 views) M60 Home     Restorations Gallery

This period advertisement shows a Model T touring car
					bursting out from behind a family outing nature scene. The Model T is black, the background
					for the nature scene is peach colored. The father is wearing a brown shirt with matching , and mother in a lovely yellow sack dress with white collar and cuffs, white stockings, and low heels hardly appropriate for camping. There also is a dalmatian dog, and a blond haired child in a pale blue shorts outfit with
					white sleeves and an aqua belt coming from within the family size white tent.

This particular Model T touring car is more a peculiar car than a particular one.

The Model T came assembled to Elliot's house in the back of his Dodge pickup truck. The photo is deceiving as the phaeton was very severely rusted and had rough metal
				for the body and fenders. This photo is of a pickup bed filled with various Model T parts.
This is a nice shot of the finished chassis. Unfortunately,
				we lack a 'before' photo. As an aside, note the workspace, which is generous and nearly spotless by Elliott's
				point of view. The man works miracles in the midst of chaos -- at least, chaos to me! Ok, this is one of two views of the undercarriage from below. This view looks forward.
This is a view of the undercarriage from below and looking back. The similarity to the Model A was eerie. Much of the T reveals the heritage upon which the Model A
				wash designed. With the engine in the car, the firewall in and wired from the magneto box to the engine, Elliot has a running chassis and a grin miles wide as he takes a spin in the driveway.
a very good view into the black, tuck and roll back seat. The upholstery is very nice as usual. A full-on view of the T Model interior from the rear. Along with	the four spoke steering wheel are the spark and throttle control rods, the three foot pedals and the, um, emergency brake handle...?
A top down view of the car from the left rear corner. The
				demountable rims in silver look great with the painted wood of the wheels. The spare is mounted at the
				rear. The body, splash shield, fenders and running board look beautiful in gleaming black. The driver's
				door is just a molded but non-functional impression. The rear passenger door is a working door. Bit of a
				stretch, though. This is pretty much a duplicate view of the driver side, but from the right rear corner. The top of the big, two part windshield is manages to look classy, to be honest, at least to me. A rearview mirror is attached to the windshield frame. Both the front and rear passenger doors work on this side. The back stop light is mounted to the spare tire wheel.
