Model T Ford Starts after 60+ years
1921 T Starts for the first time. The gas tank I had sitting in the floor was not working well until I put my right foot under it.
1915 Ford Model T First Start
This is a 1915 Ford Model T that has been in storage for over 15 years. We decided to see if we could make the engine run before starting restoration of the car next year. This is a Canadian built right hand drive 1915 Ford T originally shipped to Nova Scotia. We drive on the left side of the road up to 1923 when we switched over to the more common drive on the right side of the road.
1928 Buick Country Club Coupe 1st Start in 50 Years
My Great Grandfather bought this car in 1929 from the Buick dealer in Perryman, Md. with only a few hundred miles on it. He was the last one to hear it run until today. It has not been started since 1961. The motor was stuck so we dissembled it, replaced the rings, rebuilt the top end, installed a new gas tank and lines, replaced the bakelite timing gear, rebuilt the carb, new Exhaust, brakes, tires, battery and wiring harness since the mice had chewed up the original. We pushed it out of the garage, primed the fuel system and it fired right up as you see here. By the way, I could not see a thing hardly through the camera lens due to the bright sunlight.
