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.

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.

1917 Model T driving around in several feet of snow. This Model T has an
accessory Livingood four-wheel-drive attachment, otherwise it is stock. It
is dressed up to look like a WWI vehicle. Jesse Livingood is sometimes
credited with inventing 4WD. His first patent was issued in 1912. He
started selling conversion units in 1914. There is no evidence that the US
government used 4WD T's in WWI, that I can find.
