Ford Model T Touring 1914 (8367)

Manufacturer: Ford Motor Company, Dearborn, Michigan – U.S.A.
Type: Model T Touring
Engine: 2896cc straight-4
Power: 22 bhp / 1.600 rpm
Speed: 72 km/h
Production time: 1908 – 1927
Production outlet: 15,458,781
Curb weight: 750 kg

Special:
– On October 1, 1908, the company introduced the successful Ford Model T (also known as Tin Lizzie, Tin Lizzy, T‑Model Ford, Model T, or T), designed by Childe Harold Wills, Joseph A. Galamb and Eugene Farkas,
– At first assembled in Piquette plant and from 1910 in the Highland Park plant.
– It was Fords first mass production car (instead of individual hand crafting). The chassis was drawn by workers on a carriage trough the factory. Later, the sleds were replaced by carts on rails and mechanically drawn ("electric lines").
– This was not the first production line with completely interchangeable parts ever (that was Olds Motor Works, Lansing, Michigan – USA with the Model R Curved Dash), but it was the first time an entire plant worked with this system.
– The bodies were still to 1919 from other manufacturers, notably OJ Beaudette and Kelsey.
– It was Americas first automobile with standard left hand steering, while driving on the right was "the right way".
– The ignition system used an unusual trembler coil system to drive the spark plugs (used only for stationary gas engines) but made the T more flexible to use a range of fuels, like gasoline, kerosene or ethanol.
– The Ts in-line engine was the first engine with a removable cylinder head.
– The transmission is a standard two-speed planetary unit with a magneto located in front of the flywheel. This magneto supplied ignition current generated in a set of stationary coils.
– One had to have special driving techniques in order to keep the planetary gearing under control. So in many States you needed an extra / special driver’s licence.
– The early models had a foot-operated transmission brake and hand-operated rear wheel mechanical drum brakes.
– An option were the "Rocky Mountain Brakes", additional external band brakes only on the rear axle.
– The parking brake works on the tie rods to the drum brakes on the rear axle.
– The suspension employed a transversely mounted semi-elliptical spring for each of the front and rear beam axles which allowed a great deal of wheel movement to cope with the dirt roads of the time.
– The Model T’s built prior to 1919 were supplied with non-demountable wheels. This meant that if a flat tire occurred, the tire had to be removed from the rim and a new tube installed. In 1919, demountable wheels were available which allowed for a spare rim with the tire attached to be carried.
– The wheels were wooden artillery wheels with pneumatic clincher type tires, with steel welded-spoke wheels available in 1926 and 1927.
– Balloon tires with steel wires reinforcing the tire bead became available in 1925.

Volkswagen Typ 183 Iltis 1981 (1170467)

Volkswagen Typ 183 Iltis 1981 (1170467)

Manufacturer: Volkswagen AG (VAG), Wolfsburg – Germany
Type: Typ 183 Iltis
Engine: 1714cc straight-4 water-cooled
Power: 75 bhp / 5.000 rpm
Speed: 130 km/h
Production time: 1978 – 1990
Production outlet: 9,547 total
Production outlet army forces: 8,800
Production outlet civil: 747
Curb weight: 1274 kg

Special:
– It’s designed by Volkswagen AGs subsidiary Audi to replace the DKW Munga.
– Germany, France and Italy had developed a plan to jointly build a road vehicle; the so-called "European Jeep". But that plan failed (1976).
– The Type 183 Iltis (German for Polecat) is a military terrain vehicle, initially built for the German Bundeswehr.
– It is an evolved (in a hurry) type 181 ("Kurierwagen"), witch technology heavily leaned on the Beetle (Typ 1) and the Kübelwagen (Typ 82) with fully galvanized body work, only one Solex carburetor and all wheel drive (front wheel drive is separately switchable).
– The front differential is integrated in the gearbox.
– The gearbox has four forward gears (later models five-speed) and one reverse gear, and an unsynchronized "off road gear" with a large reduction.
– The four-wheel drive system that Audi developed for this car was the base for the later quattro system on civilian cars of that brand.
– Remarkably, the vehicle employed for the Bundeswehr are equipped with a 24 volt system (2x12V series-connected).
– The batteries were placed under the rear seat and an interesting detail is that the cover of the battery as a kind of barrier for the engine compartmen could be used as a kind of barrier for the engine compartment, while driving trough (deep) waters (a cooling grille was mounted in there).
– The Iltis was partly built by Volkswagen and AUDI.
– After ceasing production at Volkswagen’s, production was sold to the Canadian Bombardier, with minor changes, increased in production under license to the Canadian Forces. Belgium assembled them using the components of the Canadian Iltis for their armed forces.
– In 1987, the German Bundeswehr demand for a diesel version of Iltis (880 units with a turbodieselmotor 1600cc / 70 bhp), so they ordered them in Belgium.
