1923 Model T Ford

1923 Model T Ford

I love summertime! And for me, there are few things more enjoyable than to be tooling around in an old car. Jim Fry stops in at Troyer’s for a

delightful pastry in preparation for a parade in his 1915 Ford Model T. Note the big, beautiful brass radiator on the front which helps to identify

the year this car was made. Ford replaced the brass with a nickel colored metal starting in 1917.

This 1923 Model T Ford prepares to make a right hand turn into Harvest Market. Note that it doesn’t have turn signals and the driver is doing

the proper signaling with his left hand. Both cars are black in color which was a favorite of Henry Ford because the black paint dried faster

allowing him to make his automobiles more quickly.
