The Ford Model T revolutionized automotive transport. Victor Page was a mechanic and Model T owner; dating to 1915, this historic handbook was designed to help fellow owners maintain and repair their cars.
A simple statement begins this book: only one car in 1915 merits its own book of repair - and this is the Model T. The Ford Companys car was mass produced on an assembly line, beginning in 1908. Reliable and distinctive in appearance, by the time this book saw publication some 600,000 of these vehicles had already made it onto roads. Sold mainly to the educated middle-classes of the United States and Europe, it is with the owner demographic in mind that Victor Page wrote and published this guidebook.
Some 94 charts, drawings and photographs are included, some standalone, some showing step-by-step processes. Victor Page is a detailed and intricate writer, but accommodating to eager owners who havent benefited from a background in mechanical repair or engineering. Much of the Model Ts success was down to its construction; it was built entirely of parts that could be individually removed and replaced with the right knowhow. This book contains ample guidance on the disassembly and assembly of various components, that the car can be kept running better for longer.
