1915 Ford T Touring (Canadian production)

Recommended Posts

1915 Canadian Ford T touring for sale.

3rd owning family--sold new to the Wray family near Leamington, ON, then Cliff Arnell near Brantford, ON in 2005; I purchased from Cliff in 2006.

I believe the car was restored/repainted/engine rebuilt in the '70's and used little. New top and upholstery kits were installed in 2005. C32732 serial plate on dash matches engine. Runs strong and cool with external oil line. Rear end rebuilt 2010. Matching Clasco lamps. Often starts on compression. Decent cosmetically, but not a show car.

E-mail ihayhurs<<at>>yahoo.ca (change <<at>> to @) for more photos, or call Ian Hayhurst 905-649-6734. Asking $17,500.

Located near Toronto, Canada

Delivery to Hershey or Southern Ontario possible.

What a great looking car. And what a fantastic ad. What are the differences between US and Canadian production? I know about the driver's door (4 doors total) and 30 x 3 1/2" tires all around. Were there other differences, too? Clasco lights, I didn't know about them - probably pretty unusual.

Sorry I'm not able to buy it, but thanks for sharing the photos and info.

Chris--thanks for the questions. You are correct about the 4 doors and the 30 x 3.5" tires. Beginning in 1913, blocks were cast in Canada and received serial #'s beginning with "C". The blocks and several other parts were marked "Made in Canada". Hubcaps do not have "Made in USA", but rather a tiny C or W under the Ford script. Reproduction hubcaps are available with "Made in Canada", but I'm not sure if/when that was the practice, originally. The Clasco lamps were made in Ford, Ontario near the plant.

I remembered one of the other differences, so will take the opportunity to bump up the ad again. The Canadian '15's used forked headlights, while US cars had the single stanchion. I have seen some discussion stating that early US '15's also may have used the forks in some cases. The speculation is that the US plant shipped leftover forks, and perhaps other parts to be used up in Canada, while the US cars received the fanciest new design available.
