About

This may have been my Dad's version of a "kit" car. He gathered parts from around New Mexico, Texas, and who knows where else, and the put them together. Dad earned a living as a mechanic/parts man/automachinest for many years. His Dad before him was also a mechanic/blacksmith. That helped him to assemble an "authuentic" '27 Ford Roadster, which went on to be a show winner.
15,458,781 Model Ts were built between October 1, 1908 and May 26, 1927.

Specs

4 cylinder, 4 cycle, internal combustion gasoline engine, cast-in-bloc, 3 crank main bearings, "L" head with 2 side valves per cylinder, splash lubricated, water cooled, 177 cubic inches - 2.9 liter, 20-22 BHP @ 1600 Maximum RPM, 83 Ft-Lbs @ 900 RPM, 3.75 x 4.00 inches, 4.5 to 1, Cylinder Pressure 50-70 psi, Planetary transmission, 2 forward speeds, 1 reverse, rear wheel drive via torque tube driveline and bevel cut gear closed differential, final drive ratio 3.64/1, Approx. 45 MPH, normal cruise 35 - 40 MPH, 1400@35 MPH, 1600@40 MPH, 1800@45 MPH. Weight was about 1200 pounds.

Factory Options

Wire wheels were an option on the 1926, but standard (I think) on the '27s. Bumpers may have been an option also.
They came with side curtains for inclimate weather.
