Re: Post a photo of your antique Model T License Plate

Most Texas license plate collectors will swear that 1924 is the first full size Texas plate with the year on it. I have original small size Texas plates dated 1921 and 1922. But also have this rare 1923 set (rare because state issued to owners weren’t dated) The Key is the first letter ‘D’ for dealer.

Yeah, it has the hard to find, not-reproduced but correct compound curve splash aprons. I guess in late ‘14 Ford came out with the front fender bills.

Re: Trolling Craigslist, Brass Model T lamp?

Yep on the T era but nope on the T...E&J furnished brass lamps for the early T s but they were 2 tier chimneys. The lamp in the 1 picture would be correct for an 09-10 EMF.

Re: Headlight rings

But isn’t there a difference in the Ford script used on the brass 1915 and the nickel plated brass runs of 1927 ? If Original Smith saw the smaller script (1927) with the nickel plating buffed off on your 1915..... he wouldn’t like it.

Re: exhaust cutout

Mack, I’ve always heard an exhaust cutout does away with back pressure created by a muffler thereby ridding the engine of exhaust gasses at higher RPMs quicker. It probably has as much HP increase as making a topless roadster’s upper windshield horizontal adds to MPH.

Re: Steering column

That’s fine Tim...”not a very nice thing to say”....and my opinion is that cutting the sheet metal column of a pre 1915 T is not a very nice thing to do - especially when the bling bling is to be grafted onto a ‘New and Improved’ square flange steering tube.
