I cannot wait! I have all sorts of things I can do with these! The hubcaps are so small on these it would be hard to imagine a legible logo on them. We;lll see. It does seem a bit odd that the touring would be green for the box art. I would have thought bluse like most of them were from the factory. Hmmmm.....
Depends on what car they used for their "model". However, in the first years of production from 1908 to 1913, the Model T was not available in black but rather only grey, green, blue, and red. Green was available for the touring cars, town cars, coupes, and Landaulets. Grey was only available for the town cars, and red only for the touring cars. By 1912, all cars were being painted midnight blue with black fenders. It was only in 1914 that the "any color so long as it is black" policy was finally implemented. It is often stated that Ford suggested the use of black from 1914 to 1926 due to the cheap cost and durability of black paint. During the lifetime production of the Model T, over 30 different types of black paint were used on various parts of the car.These were formulated to satisfy the different means of applying the paint to the various parts, and had distinct drying times, depending on the part, paint, and method of drying.
Model Ts were also produced 'round the world in Buenos Aires, Argentina; Geelong, Australia; Sao Bernardo de Campo, Brazil; Toronto; Walkerville, Ontario; Copenhagen, Denmark; Manchester, England; Berlin, Germany; Cork Ireland; Cadiz, Spain. those places may have added or deleted a color choice as well.
