1927 marked an end of an era for Ford Motor Company as it would be the final production year of the Model T. These "Improved Ford" models were introduced in the final years of the T and gave an advanced look at what was to come for the company's new Model A. As such, restyled bodywork and even chassis improvements make these later cars standouts of the T range.
This original Model T 'Runabout' Tourer has been in the current ownership for three years having been imported from the USA in 2013. Evidently the subject of much previous restoration work, the red paintwork compliments the black interior and makes a welcome change from the usual black finished bodies more commonly found. The car is offered with a folder full of paperwork and photographs, most recently being put to use for occasional television work. Benefiting from a simple folding fabric hood to help fend off the worst of the English weather, 'BF 6434' is said to have good body, engine, electrical equipment and interior, whilst the paintwork is rated 'average'.
