T's Not Buckets
« on: November 16, 2012, 03:13:08 PM »
Sometimes people forget that all Model T's were not Buckets.  Here's a few from my past and present...
The first one is my '26 coupe from about 1967, The second is Del Austin's '26 roadster.  The third is Frank Hamusek's '26 taken at the second LA Roadster show in 1962 or so.  And last is the '26 roadster I am currently building.

This coupe was from Quebec, came to Ontario for a show or 2 in 1980,  then Ford stepped up and bought it, took out the  v6, put in a 4 cyl and toured it around the motor show circuit................nice car.

Here's my favorite T coupe .  Originally built by Joe Mac of Ford Parts Obsolete fame.  Powered by a B block Cragar.  Note the subtle 2" chop.

Here are a few build shots that go back a ways. The bare metal and black/grey primer are 2001 or so and the other two are 2004/05. The car has been pretty much done since 2006 but is still a work in progress.

Nice looking track. I noticed a chopped nomad in the background, we did one several years ago at our shop. Just wondering if that was possibly the same one? We did just the top, it left in primer and never seen it again.

No, It was a 25 year project in my shop. I sold it 8 or 9 years ago  locally, it got un-chopped, finished and eventually sold again.

I also did a Nomad roof conversion on a '55 Plymouth two door post 20-25 years ago for a pal. It got sold a couple times within the last couple years and is here somewhere in the mid-west. It was being driven a year or so ago with a long ram equipped 440. I hope it gets properly finished and gets some attention. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of the Ply-mad as we called it, but I might be able to find some from one of the last two guys that owned it locally.

I know many here, will not like this one, but I think it is a well planned and built with great craftsmanship, just in a "road race, high tech" style. Maybe it should be in the "Dare to be different" thread, but that would be an insult to the builder's, high level of craftsmanship. Yes, I really like it, and would love to own such a radical looking ride.

Sometimes people forget that all Model T's were not Buckets.  Here's a few from my past and present...
The first one is my '26 coupe from about 1967, The second is Del Austin's '26 roadster.  The third is Frank Hamusek's '26 taken at the second LA Roadster show in 1962 or so.  And last is the '26 roadster I am currently building.
That sure is a nice body.

Jack Thompson's 1927 Ford Model T Roadster Track-Nose Flathead. Hot Rod magazine cover car, August 1958. From the firewall back, the body is basically 1927 Ford. Claude Hampson shaped the nose section, belly pan and built the front and rear nerf bars. Photo by Eric Rickman

Dad bought a T coupe, when he was in high school, but didn't keep it long.  He's wanted one ever since.  Last year, we found this one up near Kansas City, and he couldn't resist.  Lots of stuff was done wrong, so my brother-in-law I did a front end rebuild and put some new coil overs on the back, and sent him on his way.  He's been driving the shot out of it and having a blast.

I still think it needs whimbleton white steelies and caps, but haven't convinced Dad if that yet.

Mines a '26, so it came with individual headlight stands. I am thinking about putting a '27 headlight bar on it, but kinda have mixed feelings, the headlight bar/stands is the most readily identifiable difference between a '26 and '27. ???

As a general rule, I am not as "enamored" with hot rods of the forties as the current crop of so-called "traditional" hot rodders seem to think they are, but Paul Schiefers T is one of the best ever. What a beautiful car. And it has shiny metallic paint and chrome too, just like a real hot rod... ;) ;D

1927 Ford Model T Tudor Sedan street rod "Tall T". One time show car built in the 1970's. Placed in storage since the eighties.

Original steel body in good condition. Jag rear end and drop front axle with deteriorated chrome. Ford 289 V8 engine with custom headers but never tricked out. Oversize custom radiator. Automatic transmission. Custom interior in good condition. 4 people can ride comfortably.

Owner moved offshore and put the car in storage in 1985. The "T" was driven to many rod shows in the Midwest and was very drivable when put into storage. The car needs refurbished but the basics are there to bring back a very nice street rod.

Located in Cincinnati, Ohio
18,500 or BO

There was a very similar one in better shape for sale in Oregon for around the same price last year. Someone bought the Sheldon Bardin Tudor in VERY nice shape a couple years back as well, I don't know what he paid for it, but man, if you want a survivour T-Tudor with historical significance, it doesn't get much better than that!

I'm not crazy about the leading edge of the rear fender, given that the car is not a French Delahaye "type" design.  Would have liked the fenders to come down a little like the rear and then do a sweep into the body .  That being said, thee are so many deign elements that are spot on perfect, that they carry the car.

If it matched the back a little then had a smaller french curve into the body.  The car is just beautiful.  It's a great piece of rolling fun and history.  Wonder how the driver felt? I know that when I sat in the La Mesa (Ricky Nelson) car it was uncomfortable!  Also when Fretwell redid the frame on the Flint Roadster, part of his requirements were that the driver had to get "down in the car" and that the ergonomics were considered for a man of Flint (or Orosco) to drive it comfortably.  A lot of these cars look great as this one does...but you always wonder.  The King roadster fit really well.

Its funny, I am 5'9" and 175, when I was a young guy, I thought I wished I was a little bigger, now I am glad I'm NOT! I'm "hot rod" sized!  ;D I LOVE the La Masa car. I hear what you are saying, but honestly I like the fenderline on this car as is, its not perfectly proportioned, but it fits with that whole early sixties aggressive look. If it was smoother and better proportioned, it would take away from that.

They are narrow too, REALLY narrow! I was surprised the first time I got inside my Tudor, its funny, you don't notice it as much in the roadster, but get a roof over your head, even if its a high one, and you start to realize just how small they really are! Families were a lot "smaller" in the 1920's, people weren't "Wal-Mart" sized! ;D!

8) A T I might fit in.
They are narrow too, REALLY narrow! I was surprised the first time I got inside my Tudor, its funny, you don't notice it as much in the roadster, but get a roof over your head, even if its a high one, and you start to realize just how small they really are! Families were a lot "smaller" in the 1920's, people weren't "Wal-Mart" sized! ;D!
I'd have to build it as a center steer 1 seater! ;D
