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.

My Model T has been fully restored, and I've just purchased a pair of
carriage lights which the car was missing. Updated video to come.

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.
Ford Model T Half engine
I cut this T model Ford engine in half in 1957 using 11 hacksaw blades.
The only part not cut with the hacksaw was the camshaft as it was too hard
and had to ground through.

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.

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,
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.

running the tractor" (This homemade tractor was used to plow Victory
Gardens during the depression)
Ford 1922 Model T at the gas station.
A 1922 Ford Model T at The Esso Gas Station in Victoria BC. I pulled into
the Hillside and Shelbourne Esso and saw this classic car sitting at the
gas pumps. I had my camera in my pocket and started filming. The owner
comes out after 'pre-paying' at the counter and fills it with gasoline. He
explains about his 1922 Ford Model T.
He explains about the car as he fills teh tank. there is no fuel pump so
the gas tank is up top under the seat. He explains all the mechanisms of
the car: gearing, engine oil. alternator and other stuff.
He then starts the car and drives away. It was a lucky day for me to have
my camera in my pocket.
Thank you stranger for letting me film you filling your great car.
