Tool Part Numbers:

Many people see old tools with a FORD script on them and assume they're for a Model A or Model T. What I've found interesting is that few, if any, Model A tools had part numbers on them! Model T tools did, most of the time. And beginning in 1932, almost all Ford tools had a part number on them that also identifies the first year they were used. And the same numbering system is stilll used today.
