Re: Model T’s in the movies.

There WERE two 1915 Model T's in RAGTIME. Here's the other one. This is when "Younger Brother" played by Brad Dourif drives the car away from the hideout, because the police are looking for a Model T full of "colored folk" as Cagney described them. The car here has "ford" across the radiator grill, ...

Re: Model T’s in the movies.

Well, there was more than one. Unless the movie production company had it shipped to England. The JP Morgan library sets at the end of the movie when the car is driven were filmed at Shepperton Studios in the UK. I believe the reason for that is because they needed several blocks of city streets and...

Re: Model T’s in the movies.

Here's a picture of Howard E. Rollins, Jr. driving a 1915 touring in RAGTIME that's been "backdated" to about 1909-10, even though logically story wise, (if you know the history of what's going on in the movie), it doesn't make sense. This particular shot isn't in the movie. This scene was filmed in...

Thank you for those. Now that I know what they look like, I can check a friend of mine's stash and see if he has any. Probably not.

I've seen a frame that has a 26 rear cross member, but the extensions on the front were welded over the top of the existing frame. Maybe a backyard job?

differences in 25 and earlier frames from a 26

Other that the extra extensions that were welded to the front, longer rear crossmember, and the possibly the brake quadrant, is there any differences in a 1926 frame from earlier ones?

I was thinking how one could modify a 26 frame to fit an earlier car, IF a regular frame could not be procured.

Center Door Splash aprons

Anybody got a set of these? for a 1922.

It is my understanding that they are different from regular splash aprons from the other Fords of that era.

a repopped set is $190, but I'd like to go original if possible.

Restoration Supply sells individual spring coils so you can replace just the damaged ones. That is if buying a complete spring assembly is out of budget.
