Space is the problem for most of us. That is the only reason I had for selling my '55 Ford & my '66 T-Bird. I miss the '55 the most, had a lot of fun with that car. My youngest used it at her wedding. I may replace it one day.

Re: location of the oil can

Maybe Ole Henry figured everyone would oil up his T before leaving home, and wouldn't need to lubricate things again until returning home. And that is why there was no Factory mounting bracket on the car, for the oil can.
