The Model T came in many configurations including a sedan,
sportster, four door, pickup truck and whatever else Henry could
build you upon your request. The early days of the blue oval were
interesting, with Henry holding on tight to the corporate reigns
and squeezing as much out of that Model T design chassis as he
could. Legend has it that he took his potential executives out for
dinner on the interview process. If you got your food, and you
salted it prior to tasting it, you were not to be hired, as it
shows you may have a propensity to make decisions without checking
all the facts first!
For consignment a 1919 Ford Model T. This buggy is configured to
take at least 5 passengers comfortably to their destination. It is
in barn find condition, comes in the true color of black (the only
color available) and is a piece of automotive history.
As a tourer we see a bit of a higher stance. Also, as Henry Ford
proclaimed, "Its available in any color as long as it's black", and
this car is in black! With its carriage open cockpit style rag top
(which is technically not a convertible because it does not
retract) it is a 4-door windowless tourer, meaning it can take
several passengers at once. The body is rust free and has a satin
finish of patina and age throughout. Simple fenders frame wood
30-inch spoked wheels, also in black. The top is in good condition
and the front grille and all bodywork is fairly straight. Running
boards are solid and on the front cowl just prior to the windshield
the canvas covering is tearing off. Head lighting is on as well as
a single taillight however not working currently.
A climb aboard reveals 2 long buttoned and tufted black covered
leather benches. These show some wear and tearing in various
locations throughout. These benches have upholstered sides again
with the tufting and buttoning. The dash in very steampunk styling
has oversized round black faced instruments with brass bezels and
single knobs and dials as well as the steering wheel which is big
and original rising towards the driver. Wood planks are making up
the floor and are somewhat loose. The Model T pedal setup is there
for you to figure out!
Under the hood is a 177ci inline 4-cylinder engine which is
unrestored. A fine covering of surface rust and plenty of patina
can be seen throughout the bay. A 1-barrel carburetor feeds this
small mill and on the back is a 2-speed planetary transmission.
Showing some areas of surface rust, the undercarriage remains solid
and structurally sound. Road dirt and slight surface rust are noted
on the underside of the running boards and inside of fenders. Seen
for the suspension are transverse leaf springs and mechanical drum
brakes for the rear only.
A mostly rust free, structurally sound example this barn find will
need some TLC but when finished you will own a piece of early
automotive history and be able to see just how indestructible these
cars were built in these simpler times.
