Model T Ford Tractor Plowing
Model T Ford 1927 Model T Ford home made tractor. It has two additional
3-speed transmissions and has a Model TT rear end (Truck). The plow is a
John Deere walking plow modified with linkage to raise and lower the plow.
My dad purchased this tractor in 1941 for $15.00 "My older brother is
running the tractor" (This homemade tractor was used to plow Victory
Gardens during the depression)
Hauling Hay with 1926 Ford Model TT 1 Ton Truck
Bringing in the hay with my 1926 Ford TT 1 ton truck. The truck has a New
Zealand 'Colonial' built cab and deck.
What use is a vintage truck if you can't use it?

(I think over 60 bales of hay was the biggest load)

How to start up and drive a 1925 Ford Model T
While still in the Ely neighborhood of Fairlee, Vermont, we get a quick
lesson on how to start up and drive a 1925 Ford Model T. I am not sure how
comprehensive a lesson it is, but I think with a bit of practice, I could
drive this car. Once the car is started, we take a drive down Old Federal
Route 5, which has been truncated, since the new Route 5 was built in the
1930's. The road is also unpaved, which I am sure is the way its been for
years. Imagine being on this road 80 years ago and seeing this car coming
along down the road; this would have been a pretty common sight. At the
end of the road, we turn around in a neighbors driveway, where we see a
couple of newer, yet vintage, cars. I am not sure what the white car is,
but the Chevrolet pick-up looks like it's from the 1960's. Enjoy the view
from the car, as well as the lesson on starting and driving it. If you
have any questions about the video, feel free to message me. Comments are
welcome. The video was taken on August 25th, 2013.
Rare Model A Ford US Mail Car.
Saw this cool looking US mail car from the 1930's today in a private
collection. It was used to deliver mail during the harsh Nabraska winters.
The owner said there was two of these built back in the day. It looks like
a Model A coupe body sitting on a 1 Ton model AA frame and running gear. It
would be fun to take for a spin.

This Model T was a Connecticut 'barn find' in April 2012, and had been
sitting since 1976. The car is all original and unrestored and will be
kept as a "driver" in its original condition.
