For Sale: 1927 Ford Model T in St. Louis, Missouri

Vehicle Description

The success of the mass-produced Ford Model T will forever be recorded in the history books. With its launching in 1908, it was built in multiple styles through 1927. With generational design changes along the way, the Model T sold confidently each year as a practical, inexpensive vehicle affordable by almost any working individual with plenty of parts and service centers located just about anywhere you needed. Henry Ford continued to produce America's affordable Model T at a rapid pace into the late 1920's, averaging over 1 million units each year! The simplicity of the design, along with nine model choices to choose from, made Ford an easy choice for budget conscience buyers.

We are proud to offer this 1927 Ford Model T Roadster, also termed Runabout. It comes finished in Henry's favorite color, black, with a matching black vinyl interior and folding convertible top. Powered by its 177ci inline 4-cylinder engine producing 20 horsepower with a top speed of around 42mph mated to a 2-speed planetary transmission and auxiliary Ruckstell 2-speed rear axle. Features include 12-spoke wood wheels wrapped in Firestone 4.40/4.50-21" tube tires, driver side spotlight, upgraded 4-blade cooling fan, chrome hub caps, rear- mounted spare tire, and added front steering bump shock.

This Model T has been stored on display in our showroom since November 2011 by the previous owner. Upon purchasing this Model T from his estate in March 2022 we performed an oil change, replaced the battery, removed and professionally flushed and sealed the fuel tank, resealed the carburetor and fuel petcock valve, cleaned up the ignition points and plugs, along with cleaning up some various wiring. It runs very well and should be a fun investment for anyone looking for an attractive, early Model T Runabout!

This long-stored Model T has survived beautifully while resting in our climate-controlled facility, and it is now available for sale for the first time in over a decade. These Model T Fords were the beginning of affordable passenger vehicles, and a testament to simple yet faithful engineering contributing to why they are still around today! Many Vintage Ford clubs are dedicated to registering and keeping track of these pieces of automotive history.
