Also known as the "Tin Lizzie", the Model T is widely referred to
as an automobile that changed history. With the introduction of the
assembly line, suddenly a vehicle was created that had a lower
production cost thus transferring the savings on to the consumer.
This meant that travel via automobile could be something your
average American could afford to do. These cars are a very
important piece of our history and makes standing next to an
original Model T like this 1926 a very special experience. Just a
couple years later the Model T was changed and a new model
introduced but this isn't before being in production for almost 20
consecutive years! This Model T is known as the Touring bodystyle
which meant it incorporated a back seat so not only could you now
travel via car, your whole family could come along. This car has
undergone a body off restoration and kept all original. We are
selling this car for a collector who primarily works on vehicles of
this vintage and are confident that everything was done right. The
very solid, all steel body is painted in a Burgundy and Black
combination which looks great. The brass radiator, large dual
headlights, stacked windshield, and even rear spare are just like
you would have seen from the factory. It is a really solid,
straight forward classic.
Everything works on the car and it runs great. Whether your goal is
to put it in a museum or take it out on parades, the car is ready
to go. It has its original 4 cylinder motor that has been entirely
rebuilt. That is paired with a 2 speed transmission that was also
rebuilt. In terms of mechanics this was a much simpler time and
this car has all of its original style components which work as
When we say simple, we do not mean that in a negative way at all.
There is a beauty in the simplistic nature of vehicles of this
vintage compared to where we are now. Looking at the dash example
you will see nice Black paint, the ignition and a volt meter. Back
then you didn't need anything else! You will however be thankful to
hear that a modern starter was added, so no worries about throwing
your shoulder out trying to crank it from out front. However, it
can be started that way if you choose to do so. The dual bench
seats have nice Black upholstery and are one other place where you
will see a bit of modernization with the addition of seatbelts.
