Close look at 1910s 20hp Ford Model T, its ignition & light systems Price $850 FOB Detroit, MI
Close look 1910s 20hp Ford Model T, its ignition wheels and light systems. Price $850, F.O.B., Detroit, Mich. (1908) - Sunnyvale CA centennial event http://www.thehenryford.com/exhibits/showroom/1908/model.t.html The early Model Ts actually did come in a variety of colors, but beginning in 1914 and for the next eleven years, the Model T would be sold in only one color: black. The main reason for this was the black enamel used dried more quickly than other paints and therefore sped up production. Consumers were not offered a choice of colors again until 1926, due in part to slumping sales. It has never been proven that Henry Ford ever said, "You can paint it any color...," but the phrase has survived for 3/4 of a century and does indicate something about America's beloved Model T: its "steadfastness," its enduring and endearing "sameness." The first production Model T Ford was assembled at the Piquette Avenue Plant in Detroit on October 1, 1908. Over the next 19 years, Ford would build 15,000,000 automobiles with the Model "T" engine, the longest run of any single model apart from the Volkswagen Beetle. From 1908-1927, the Model T would endure with little change in its design. Henry Ford had succeeded in his quest to build a car for the masses. Ford Model T - 100 Years Later http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4KrIMZpwCY 1910 Ford Make sure you read all the statistics under the photo. This has only been 102 years ago?Amazing!! The year is 1910, over one hundred years ago. What a difference a century makes! Here are some U. S. statistics for the Year 1910: The average life expectancy for men was 47 years. Fuel for this car was sold in drug stores only. Only 14 percent of the homes had a bathtub. Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone. There were only 8,000 cars and only 144 miles of paved roads. The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph. The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower ! The average US wage in 1910 was 22 cents per hour. The average US worker made between $200 and $400 per year. A competent accountant could expect to earn $2000 per year, a dentist $2,500 per year, a veterinarian Between $1,500 and $4,000 per year, and a mechanical engineer about $5,000 per year. More than 95 percent of all births took place at HOME. Ninety percent of all Doctors had NO COLLEGE EDUCATION! Instead, they attended so-called medical schools, many of which were condemned in the press AND the government as 'substandard.' Sugar cost four cents a pound. Eggs were fourteen cents a dozen. Coffee was fifteen cents a pound. Most women only washed their hair once a month, and used Borax or egg yolks for shampoo. Canada passed a law that prohibited poor people from entering into their country for any reason. The Five leading causes of death were: 1. Pneumonia and influenza 2. Tuberculosis 3. Diarrhea 4. Heart disease 5. Stroke The American flag had 45 stars. The population of Las Vegas , Nevada was only 30! Crossword puzzles, canned beer, and iced tea hadn't been invented yet. There was no Mother's Day or Father's Day. Two out of every 10 adults couldn't read or write and only 6 percent of all Americans had graduated from high school. Marijuana, heroin, and morphine were all available over the counter at the local corner drugstores. Back then pharmacists said, 'Heroin clears the complexion, gives buoyancy to the mind, Regulates the stomach and bowels, and is, in fact, a perfect guardian of health' Eighteen percent of households had at least one full-time servant or domestic help. There were about 230 reported murders in the ENTIRE U.S.A. ! TilTul http://tiltul.com LinksYouWantToRemember CIMG0264 Red old Ford Sunnyvale CA centennial.MOV





1914 SAXON Runabout Roadster Model 14 (For Sale By Owner)
Offered for sale is this very rare Saxon Model 14 (not a type A-IV) Runabout/Roadster. It has a 12.1 hp, 95.0 cu. in. L-head four-cylinder engine, solid front axle with quarter-elliptic leaf springs, three-speed rear transaxle with quarter-elliptic leaf springs, and two-wheel mechanical brakes. The wheelbase is 96". This early Saxon has been preserved in very presentable condition. The body, paint and top are all in very good condition, and the brightwork in the carbide / acetylene lamps is still correctly plated in nickel. The paint has some small scratches and some small chips as it has been used in parades and driven occasionally. The plastic window on the back of the convertible top has turned yellow and there are some signs of light wear on the top. The seat is upholstered in black vinyl, which is in very good condition and nicely complements the wooden dashboard and black carpeted floor. The engine is clean, well detailed and runs well, and the chassis, running gear and tires are also very good. Car is equipped with a manual / hand operated horn mounted on the driver's door. There are some cracks in some of the sheet metal on the car as is expected of a vehicle that is nearly 100 years old. More photos are available upon request. An attractive light car and a very presentable older restoration, this Saxon is ideal for the collector in search of rarity. The acetylene generator tank is still intact, and also an auxiliary Prest-O-Lite acetylene tank included, but not connected. Carburetor is a Carter UT updraft and was recently rebuilt. Ignition box on dash is Atwater Kent. Battery is brand new. A 6V electric starter has been added to the car. Also included are the small side flags that are not pictured as well as a working antique/period bottle jack, lug/cap wrench, priming funnel, fire extinguisher and some other accessories. Please note that the vehicle does not have an odometer or speedometer. Vehicle has clear title. This vehicle is from the collection of Johnny Dillon (of Dillon Markets that merged with Kroger), and has been garage kept for decades. The car is garaged in zipcode 85629 and I can help coordinate shipment and pick-up. As a background, Hugh Chalmers was the man behind the Saxon. Although his Chalmers car was selling well in the medium-price field, he saw an opening for a small, light car priced in Ford territory. He opened the Saxon Motor Company in Detroit in 1913 and introduced the Saxon at the cyclecar price of $395. Far from being a cyclecar, however, the Saxon boasted a 96-inch wheelbase, 12-hp water-cooled four-cylinder engine from Ferro (also Continental). The first model to roll off the production line was the pictured two-seat roadster which used a 4-cylinder engine built by Continental that was mated to a 2-speed gearbox (an optional 3-speed gearbox was also available). Headlights were also available as an option, and electric lighting was fitted as standard equipment in 1915. In 1914 a team of 4-cylinder Saxons was among the earliest cars to ever travel the Lincoln Highway, covering the coast-to-coast distance of more than 3,500 miles in under 30 days averaging 35 miles per gallon! To meet demand, a larger plant was obtained in 1915, the year Chalmers left the company. A six-cylinder car was added in 1916. During the peak production of 1915-1917, with 1916 being the strongest year, total production hit 27,800 cars. The popularity of the Saxon elevated the company to being the eighth largest automobile manufacturer in America at the time, in large part due to fact the $395 runabout could outpace the Model T Ford, especially on hills. Rapid expansion crippled the firm, and, although it soldiered on into 1922, Saxon never really saw profitability again. What is truly amazing is that of the 90,000 plus overall cars built, the Saxon Registry is only aware of approximately 140 surviving examples.
