Further info:

An extremely rare, possibly unique, 6-seater with Surrey top, this T is said to have originally been owned by a cotton plantation owner. Finished in black with red diamond-stitched vinyl trim, the original owner traded the car in for a Model A in the late 1920s and it remained with the dealer until 2000. Imported to the UK from Missouri c.2000, it was subsequently painstakingly restored and improved upon by the vendor. He has made it as driveable as possible with an enviable specification including high compression alloy cylinder head, high compression pistons, 12v electrics, coil, distributor, alternator, water pump, Rocky Mountain brakes and Warford auxiliary transmission. A veteran of two London to Brighton Commercial runs, he now describes the bodywork, paint, engine, transmission and trim as all being in "good" condition. Starting readily upon inspection, it is offered with Swansea V5 document and is MoT exempt.
