"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.

purpose-built automobile, that is a vehicle designed from the ground up to
be motorized. Benz unveiled it officially on July 3, 1886 on the
Ringstraße in Mannheim, Germany. The vehicle was patented with German
patent number 37435, which Benz applied for on January 29, 1886.

The Ford Model A as a Daily Driver for a Year
Jonathan Klinger's coworkers thought he was bluffing when he said he wanted
to drive a Ford Model A every day for a year -- including winter ... in
northern Michigan. But he followed through, and he's been doing it in a
project he calls "365 Days of A," documenting his progress on a blog of the
same name. RoundAbout host Craig Cole went for a walkaround of the Model A
