Re: Model T gas tank?

Prior to '26, Model T gas tanks were under the front seat unless modified to otherwise.

In '26 and '27, the gas tank was typically in the cowl.

Re: Reeds Rat Rods

Typically a T's number will be found on the left-hand side of the block.

Re: Should I buy a Model A or T ????

During my one and only drive of this car, I ran it just over midway through the 12 different ratios (high-direct-high). I never did throttle it up, and the car was scary fast. The restorer who was...

Re: Should I buy a Model A or T ????

I have driven my '20 T once, and it was a monster!

The seller said he remembered his father building (rebuilding?) the car about 1950, but rarely ever driving it. The seller did get it out on an...
