Approx. less than a dozen.



Fordchanged the design, believed today after about 500-750 Model T’s were built, asit wasn’t one of Henry Ford’s ‘Better Ideas’! And owners did change them, with parts kits provided by Ford, so today finding an original two pedal / twolever car is rare.
The engine mounted water pump on these early T’s wasdiscontinued after 2500 T’s were built.Interested in seeing a 2 pedal T? #220 is on display at the Piquette Ave Plantin Dearborn, MI and #337 is on display at The Model T Museum in Richmond,IN.

The correct answer to your question is none because there's no such thing as a 1908 Model T. 1909 to 1927. However Tmodel's info is correct.

According to the "Encyclopaedia" 3 pedal cars started production on 19th December 1908.....as below,


DEC 19 Ford Archives Three-pedal cars under production. (Model T) Numerous modifications in design were made. A factory letter indicates that after 500 cars the three-pedal modification was made. At about car number 800 all used the three-pedal system. (Evidence recently found indicates that there were 750 two-lever cars made; the original run was 500 and then an additional 250 were added.)


Cheers,
Rob

I saw a two pedal in FL a couple of weeks ago owned by a guy who lives near Odessa, FL. I forget his name.

From serial number 2500 the 1909 Model T was produced with major design changes. You can see all that here:

Ha. i would have guessed more than they originally made, if plywood bodied replicas on ebay were counted. Which they're not.
