ok Art thanks for the info though in all honesty that's not at all what I asked, and its probably a case of not reading my post very carefully. I am well aware of windshields in which the upper part is hinged and folds forward and down...onto the VERTICAL piece of glass below.

 

you might note I emphasized the word "vertical". you might also note the lower glass in the photo above as well as the box art is not vertical. you might also note some other disparities from what I, at least, thought I "knew" about these windshields (in my case very little).

 

thanks again!

Danno,

 

I used to tow my '26 Touring with a Ford F-350. All you need is the Galaxy trailer and you would have it made! Like my 1:1 trailer, you probably could fit two complete '12 T's inside one trailer!

I build Factory Stock . Like VW's , unless you know these Vehicles , you can't decearn one year from another . Both made "Running Changes" during Production . If the change was lucky enough to happen at the same time as the Competition offered up New Model Year , so be it . If not true , so be it . The latter years with the Costs of not including US Government mandates changed this practice for VW . I am looking forward to new Model T's I cannot scratch build or Modify . I will most happily add these to my String .. Thanx ..

Given that ICM is located in Ukraine, I'm wondering what effect, if any, all the mess over there is having on the company?  (fingers crossed).

John,

 

With the Model T, you are most correct:  There was no such thing as an annual, model year change in the Model T--changes, both mechanical and appearance-wise, happened as they happened, which makes certainly "brass era" Model T Fords to date just by looking at them.  "Sheet Metal Joe"(Galamb, Ford's stamping wizard back then) comes up with a newly shaped, less expensive to produce set of front fenders?  They got put into production as they happened, rather than holding off for a specific time of the year so they could be announced as being "new".  In fact, there were almost no announcements of styling changes until the "1926" Model T's were introduced.

Has anyone heard anything about a release date on these yet? I looked at the manufacturer website and found nothing.
