Updated video to come. Update: "I MADE A MISTAKE!" 55psi only applies to clincher tyres on earlier Model T's. Since mine is a 1925 model and has split rims and balloon tyres, the correct tyre pressure is 35psi. ---------------------------------------------------- I imported my 1925 Ford Model T from the USA, not far from Detroit, Michigan where it was built. In this video I demonstrate the T's unusual controls and how they all work, I show you how to start a Model T, and I take you on a short drive at the end. The Model T was manufactured between 1908 and 1927, and was know by various names including Tin Lizzie, Flivver, T‑Model Ford, or just 'T'. The Model T set 1908 as the historic year that the automobile became popular. It is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, the car that opened travel to the common middle-class American; some of this was because of Ford's innovations, including assembly line production instead of individual hand crafting. On May 26, 1927, Henry Ford watched the 15 millionth Model T Ford roll off the assembly line at his factory in Highland Park, Michigan.

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.





Hand crank start
Filmed at Norgesløpet 2008 in Hamar, Norway. It sure is an American car from the 1930's but I don't know which brand it is. The cars all looked the same back than, too. It is an impressive task to start it by muscle power, though.





Lada hand crank start
I made an attempt of starting my Lada with a hand crank, and it went smoother than I'd thought. It was unstarted for a week. The preparations I did before starting, was removing the license plate to access the hole in the bumper, turning on the ignition and pulling the choke out fully. Of course I also checked that it was not in gear =)





First Start for 1923 Model T barn car
This '23 Model T had not been run in decades. Pulled the engine and gave it a full rebuild, then re- installed and overhauled the chassis with mostly used Model T parts. The car will be kept in the original rusty condition, as pulled from the barn......but she runs now! Last licensed in 1948, Ford Model T's like this were popular with farmers. This was originally a touring car, but the back seat part of the body and the convertible top was tossed, and a homemade wooden bed put on to carry produce to market.





1925 Ford Model T First Start
1925 Ford Model T Coupe 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. Music Credit: Theme song from Click and Clack: The Tappet Brothers radio show on NPR.
