1926 Model T Touring All Steel 1 of 1 - Autorama Detroit 1st Place
If you love the Hot Rod Culture and appreciate a high-quality,
professional-level, one of a kind, hand-built vehicle, we welcome
your most discerning inspection of this offering.
This is an all-steel, original 1926 Model T Ford Touring remarkably
preserved after being stored indoors for 45 years. Body, doors,
fenders and radiator shell are restored originals. Minor rust
repair consisted of only a small patch panel between the front and
rear doors. Hood, running boards and splash aprons were custom
fabricated three inches longer than stock to eliminate a firewall
setback. The custom-built firewall is removable to gain access to
the rear of the engine. The windshield frame is chopped 1.5 inches
with a non-folding custom top fabricated from steel tube and
aluminum sheet then upholstered inside and out. The undercarriage
is PPG black single stage paint with PPG base/clear on the body and
The car sits on a custom fabricated square tube frame using Model A
dimensions and a three-inch longer wheelbase. The Chrome front axle
has a six-inch drop, disc brakes, and MG lever shocks. Cross
steering is via a Vega box. The front axle is mounted on a Model A
transverse spring using Model A radius rods and Panhard bar. The
rear-axle is a first-generation Bronco nine-inch Ford with drum
brakes. The axle is mounted on a custom made Model T humpback
spring, 1936 Ford radius rods, and tube shocks. The rear cross
member is vertically adjustable.
The car is overpowered with a computer-controlled 1994 Taurus SHO
3.2 liter fuel injected engine mated to a new C-5 auto transmission
by a custom adaptor. This high output, high revving six-cylinder
runs smoothly and remains cool.
The overstuffed interior is very comfortable. The fabric is white
metallic, marine-grade Naugahyde. The roof is covered in bright
white convertible top material. The headliner is 1964 Chevy
perforated white. Interior woodwork is solid oak throughout. Car
was built and assembled at home by an experienced owner/builder and
has won multiple show awards. It has traveled less than 1,500 miles
