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.

been "Balanced and Blueprinted". This video was taken to show our long

Ford Model T Railcar at the WW&F Railway Museum
This Ford Model T inspection vehicle was built by the Monson Railroad in
Monson, Maine. It was loaned out by the Boothbay Railway Village to the
WW&F for one of their big open house events in August of 2002. More on the
Boothbay Railway Village at http://www.railwayvillage.org/
The Wiscasset, Waterville, and Farmington Railway was a two-foot gauge
common carrier railroad that operated in the early part of the 1900's, up
until 1933 when the railroad ceased operations. The line ran from Wiscasset
in the south, to Albion and Winslow in the north. The Museum is located at
the site of the old Sheepscot station, with mainline track running north
from Cross Road, on the original roadbed.
They are laying track like there's no tomorrow, and have gone past the next
station in Alna Center which has been recreated with a run-around so that
they can finally run with the engine in the front both ways. Another
fantastic place for the whole family. Filmed in August 2002. More info on

Educational film showing the inner workings of the Ford Motor Car factory
in 1932. We not only see the construction of cars at the factory, we also
see how the raw materials, such as rubber, are sourced and transported.
Lots of great scenes of Ford motor cars from the early 1930's, and many
other gems including scenes of the Ford Railroad. .

1914 Ford Model T
This cool car has been in the family for some 50 years, The story is my
Grandpa pulled it out of a chicken coop where it sat for some time in the
50's. He went through it and restored it. ( the horn is Not original )
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.
oil change (shocking) after sitting for 50 years Ford Model A
I bought a 1930 Model A 5 window coupe all original except for a dropped
axle, a Mallory dual point distributor, some dual electrode spark plugs,
four blade radiator fan, 15" steel reversed center wheels with slicks and a
lawnmower fuel tank bolted to the dash (reasons to believe it was a hot
rod) it wouldn't turn over when I got it so I took the plugs out and poured
some Mistory oil in the holes and let it sit for a few weeks, I turned it
back n forth till I was able to give it a few full turns, checked the oil
level, put some gas in it, hooked up a battery and it turned over fine with
the starter but no fire, pulled out the distributor to find a home made
shaft extention that wasn't long enough so I rebuilt the distributor and
made a new shaft and rebuilt the carb and now it fired up! I called Adrian
to come over and check it out, he said it sounds good but don't try driving
it untill you change the oil, I drove it up and down the alley sinse the
oil look to be ok an at the correct level, called him again to let him know
how it went and the first thing he asked was, did you change the oil? so I
got to work took the drain plug out and oil dribbled out no matter what i
did it wouldn't drain out so I took the oil pan out and found the oil caked
at the bottom of the pan, lesson learned.... Always pull the oil pan OFF to
make sure you don't run your newly acquired Old motor with a pan full of
crud, I hope this helps,,, more videos of this model A to come so stay
tunned! thanks for whatching.
thanks for the great advice Adrian.
First Start for 1923 Model T barn car
This '23 Model T had not been run in decades. Pulled the engine and gave it
a full rebuild, then re- installed and overhauled the chassis with mostly
used Model T parts. The car will be kept in the original rusty condition,
as pulled from the barn......but she runs now!
Last licensed in 1948, Ford Model T's like this were popular with farmers.
This was originally a touring car, but the back seat part of the body and
the convertible top was tossed, and a homemade wooden bed put on to carry
produce to market.
