Timmis Motor Company Ltd. has been the manufacturer of these
The Timmis-Ford V-8 Roadster, easily qualifying as the most authentically
remanufactured automobile in the world today, is an exact recreation
of the 1934 Ford V-8 Roadster. Each one is assembled by a team of
dedicated craftsmen, every effort being made to build an automobile
that is a connoisseur's dream, authentic and true to the finest detail.
Many of the parts used in the Timmis-Ford V-8 Roadster are long lost
The frame, wheels, headlights, grille and instruments are genuine
1934 pieces, while many of the chassis components, engines, transmissions,
differentials, brakes and steering units have the same outward appearance
as the original yet have vastly superior internal parts, giving greatly
improved performance while handsomely maintaining the original theme.
The engines, the same basic type as were used in 1934, are the most
refined version of the famous Ford flathead V-8, boasting 239.4 cubic
inches and 125 horsepower. In comparison with the original 85 horsepower
V-8 engine, they are of the same general dimensions, but with larger
bores, higher compression and about fifty percent more power. All
internal parts are of modern manufacture, resulting in one of the
most reliable, smooth running engines possible. Acceleration and performance
is impressive, sports-car-like and superior to many modern automobiles.
In attempting to build an automobile as authentic as the Timmis-Ford
V-8 Roadster, Timmis Motor Company Ltd. relies on suppliers around
the world. The engines are custom built at the Ford of Canada Engine
Remanufacturing Plant, Timmis Motor Company inspectors examining and
selecting the parts to be used, prior to shipment to the Ford plant,
where they are built into new engines with a Ford guarantee.
