I was just reading that Ford did use up to 700 Robertson (square drive) screws on each Model T bodies (at least on the Canadian models with bodies built by Fisher). (click for link)

Phillips screws didn't come into existence until the Model T ceased production, so it can't be Phillips.

Allen or hex screws were invented in 1892. I don't recall ever seeing Allen screws on a "T" but who knows...



That's my new guess...Allen screw.

Wait a minute....I'm changing my answer to Phillips. Based on this (click for link)

I think I misinterpreted you question to mean that Ford used the fasteners in question on the Model T....

Brian,
I think you should get the floor for answering 80% of the question. But that's up to Chris.

Joe G.

P.S. If I got the floor for this one, I would pass it to you.

Ok Guys, it's Phillips. He went back to slotted screws for a little while but it was Phillips that he finaly settled on. And because Henry didn't go with the Robertson screw no one else did either and it didn't catch on in the states. It's a shame because it is a good screw. mmmmmm I might have said that before mmmmmmmm.

Brian got most of the answers so he should take the floor. Sorry I didn't get back sooner but sometimes I have to do a little work.

Good job all of you who answered and don't you think it's an intersesting story?

The Old Man said that I liked Buicks! Because I used to look for them just about every Saturday at around 2:30 in the morning.

Maybe, I am wrong, but wasn't that POS diesel that they tried in the late 70s a Buick........Maybe Olds?

Brian, that would be the Task Force trucks, or 'second' series, right?

In '58 Chevrolet went with 'Apache'...Apache 31, 31 is short for 3100.
