Ford Model T - Fifth Gear Legends
Over the coming months, we're going to drive some of our favourite cars of
all time and we're starting with an absolute cracker. In this video, Graham
gets to grips with the backwards controls of a 101 year old Ford Model T
and tells the tale of the car that revolutionised motoring.
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.
My dad purchased this tractor in 1941 for $15.00 "My older brother is
running the tractor" (This homemade tractor was used to plow Victory
Gardens during the depression)
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.

New Model T Engine in Test Stand
1927 Model T engine, rebuilt by Gen III Antique Auto of Massachusetts.
This engine was done for a client in Florida. It includes a Stipe 280 cam,
nylon timing gear, modified 009 distributor, modern clutch pack, and a high
compression head. Assembled using modern methods and tolerances. It's
been "Balanced and Blueprinted". This video was taken to show our long
distance customer what it looks like and how it runs before shipping it
down to him. If you have a Model T engine you need rebuilt, please give us
a call or drop us a note via email. Our website address is
Model T Snow Flyer
The maiden Alaska run of the 1917 Model T Snow Flyer owned by the
Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum in Fairbanks, Alaska.
I do not own this video, Salvage Squad rebuild and restore another classic
vehicle. Neil Tuckett owns this fantastic Ford Racing car based on the
Model T, you can buy Model T's from Tuckett Brothers in the UK. Fully
restored and by real enthusiasts.

Update 10 Aug 2012:
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.

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
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.
Roof 101 Cyclone OHV Model A Ford Engine Conversion - Clip #2
This is the 2010 4 Port OHV conversion for the Model A and B Ford. It's
modeled after the 1929 R&R Cyclone originally created by Robert Roof of
Anderson, Indiana, USA. Charlie Yapp, owner of Scalded Dog Speed Parts
contacted Jim Roof, Robert's grandson, and Jim became the new "Chief
Designer" and Charlie the producer. The end result is nothing short of a
wildly successful mechanical achievement . The power and inefficiency are
huge and surprising. The parts are mostly off the shelf at your local
dealer. If you get a chance to see one take a close look at the technology,
it's different and edgy but still look and sound like a period racing
On Our website. . .www.secretsofspeed.com. . .you will be able to find the
Dyno chart links and
much more. . .like contact info. Yapp also manufactures the famous Riley
Two Port OHV and the Lion Speed Head.

cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild
video noise reduction applied.
The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise
reduction, clipping reduction, and equalization (the resulting sound,
though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).
...Motor oils are derived from petroleum-based and
non-petroleum-synthesized chemical compounds. Motor oils today are mainly
blended by using base oils composed of hydrocarbons, polyalphaolefins
(PAO), and polyinternal olefins (PIO), thus organic compounds consisting
entirely of carbon and hydrogen. The base oils of some high-performance
motor oils however contain up to 20% by weight of esters...
Lubricating oil creates a separating film between surfaces of adjacent
moving parts to minimize direct contact between them, decreasing heat
caused by friction and reducing wear, thus protecting the engine...
