  • Used for various film and promotional work
  • Subject to a previous engine overhaul and the radiator recored
  • Current ownership for c.30 year and rebodied as a van from a town car

Originally built as a town car, this Model T has been with the vendor many years and was rebodied as a van and repainted around 1988. The engine has also been the subject of a previous overhaul whilst the radiator has been recored. Following completion, it has been used for film and promotional work, making appearances in ‘Michael Collins’ and ‘Unknown Soldier’. Finished in cream / burgundy with black wings and interior, it is now described as having “very good” body, paint, engine, transmission and interior.

Introduced in October 1908, the Model T was based on a high-grade vanadium steel chassis equipped with transverse leaf-sprung suspension and rear-wheel brakes. Powered by a 2890cc sidevalve four-cylinder engine mated to two-speed planetary transmission, it was available in a variety of body styles and proved singularly adept at traversing unmade roads. No less than 16.5million examples were produced between 1908 and 1927 when the model was replaced by the Model A.
