Do you just want to be in the parade or do you want to lead it with
this 1923 Ford Model T coupe? This is the vehicle that put America
on wheels, and this example has a more unique style and a
The Model T coupe is an interesting car. After all, we're used to
seeing plenty from the series, but most of them are open-top
touring sedans. The coupe is a rarer body style that adds a touch
of sophistication to the everyman car. After all, you get a
weather-friendly full body with upright glass, a two-piece
windshield, and an overall distinct upgrading style. This is Henry
Ford's famous black, and while it is not the original paint, it
will have most people thinking it is. That's because the 1950s
application was done in a now-classic lacquer, and you have all the
right aged in appearance that only comes with time. And there are
terrific little details, like the manual windshield wiper,
MotoMeter radiator cap, and a toolbox behind the trunk. This even
has a tool kit that comes with the sale.
The closed body means you get to have an interior done in cloth.
Just like the exterior, this was refreshed in the 1950s, but the
classic mohair style has aged in so that onlookers will assume it's
original (we won't tell the secret if you won't.) The dash is a
simple affair, with just controls for the ignition system and an
ammeter. Controls will be familiar to anyone who's driven a T, but
if you've never piloted this famous Ford, don't worry because
millions have mastered it before you. Working the controls is part
of this car's charm.
The Model T's powerplant was the trusty 177 cubic-inch inline-four.
This might not be large by today's standards, but the torque-filled
powerhouse knew how to easily outpace the horse and buggy. You'll
be surprised at how much you'll enjoy driving it, and how intuitive
the maintenance is. The motor has a very honest presentation, so it
has the kind of style where you won't be afraid to work within the
ample space of the engine bay. In fact, it has also been given more
recent investment, including newer wiring and a newer water pump.
And the result is a car that loves to be a runner.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, service manuals,
and build receipts. This one has an honest style that's terrific,
right down to the wood wheels. So as much as you love seeing it in
the pictures, it will be even more fun showing it off at the
events. Don't miss this T coupe, call today!
