Launched in the autumn of 1908, Henry Ford's ubiquitous Model T was the car that set both his company and the world at large on the move. It was powered by a sidevalve 2.9-litre four-cylinder engine producing some 20hp. The epicyclic transmission had two forward speeds and a reverse gear and was controlled by a combination of three foot pedals and a lever. Over time the factory produced 0-, 2-, 3- and 4-door Roadsters, Tourers, Pick-ups, Coupes, Estates and Saloons, while rolling chassis were sold so any type of body could be crafted by an appropriate coachbuilder.
This four-door left-hand drive Tourer nowadays sports a V5C certificate and the British registration 'SV 5152'. It is said to drive 'superbly' and have 'good' bodywork and 'very good' paintwork, upholstery, engine and transmission. It features Red bodywork matched to Black interior trim and is being offered complete with a canvas hood that's apparently 'in good shape'.
