Arguably, the Model 'T' Ford has been the best known type of popular car of all time. Study any old photograph or postcard published between 1914 and 1935, showing a street scene in an American town or city, and the vehicles seen will include several Model 'T' Fords. The 'T' enjoyed a significant presence in Britain, on the continent and indeed world-wide.
The Ford Model T Tourer in question holds a fascinating history dating back to its first registration in the United States of America in January 1920. After decades of use on American roads, it embarked on a new chapter when it was exported from the Port of New York on 12th December 2006. This vintage automobile is a testament to its enduring legacy, clad in a classic Black finish and featuring a beautifully patinated Black leather interior. It exudes an aura of timeless elegance that transports enthusiasts back to the roaring twenties. According to records from the Model T Ford Register of Great Britain, the chassis remains original and period-correct. While there may be some uncertainty surrounding the engine and body's full originality to this specific chassis, both components are believed to be in alignment with the era in which they were crafted. During a recent photoshoot, the Model T exhibited remarkable performance, delivering a smooth and sprightly ride. This speaks to its enduring mechanical prowess, a testament to Ford's engineering excellence of the era. In its current form, this Model T has undergone some well-considered upgrades. It now boasts a 12-volt battery, a new distributor, coil, and an updated ignition system. These modifications ensure reliability and ease of use for modern-day enthusiasts, without compromising its vintage charm. Additional enhancements include Rocky Mountain brakes for improved stopping power, a starter motor for added convenience, and upgraded sidelights to enhance visibility. These thoughtful upgrades make it not only a piece of automotive history but also a practical and enjoyable classic car for those lucky enough to experience its charm on the open road.
