Re: Luray, VA Mid-Atlantic Pre-War Swap Meet Pics

You can park that original 1910 (1911 model year, but decked out mostly as a 1910) in my garage anytime - alongside my May 1910 touring. I really like "barn finds", that are still mostly original. This one was clad with brewster green varnish when new, as was my 1910. Original wood bodies on most of...

Re: Dec. 1910 Touring

Few of the 1909-11 Model T Ford engines have the original timer plate. Mine did when I bought it in 1946, but I put on a NOS later plate sometime in the 1950s. I gave the original plate to a friend who needed one for his 1910. I should have kept it. I do have a repro plate and have an original two p...

Re: Identify this event please

Except for the pilot auto the cars we can see are 1913-14 Ford tourings. Most likely new at the time of the photo. It is interesting. If it was an "open to public" event, what all Fords? Why is the pilot auto not a Ford.

Re: Dec. 1910 Touring

An interesting surviver. The serial number makes a 1911 - but basically it is a 1910 carry over. There are several features that are 1911 model, but the T should be restored with all the nice 1910 features. The rear wheels are still with the original green paint. The front timer cover is later and t...

Re: My 1910 will not start!

we did not use a guage to test compression, but with the sparks plugs loose, we put a bit of gas by each spark plug and the gas ran in. when we turned the crank, bubbles came up showing than the pistons were forcing air out.

This summer, we pulled the engine on my 1910 Touring. It is a May 8, 1910 build. Open valve, original one piece pan, original head and trans cover.
