For Sale: 1926 Ford Model T in Fredericksburg, Texas

Vehicle Description

Welcome to Street Dreams in Texas as we celebrate our 25th year in the classic and muscle car business. We are always happy to present you with another dreamy antique automobile. This 1926 Ford Model T has a 177ci inline 4-cylinder engine with a 2-speed planetary transmission. This is the forerunner to the Model A and the whole mass production vehicle development. These vehicles are pretty basic once you get over the difference between a normal modern transmission and the planetary transmission. This vehicle once cranked is waiting to move forward. You move the lever on your left forward a little to disengage the emergency brake about halfway puts the transmission in low. Then you can press the first pedal on the left to engage the clutch and allow the vehicle to move forward at increasing speed as pressed. The vehicle is not really going to go over about 40. This speed would be uncomfortable even as these vehicles are a rough ride. The middle pedal will engage the reverse, and the far right is the brake. However it is always a good idea in a Model T to slow down ahead of time by lowering the acceleration you are applying. The brakes are not even close to the stopping power of modern power anti-lock brakes. The beauty to these basic systems is they are easy to find the problem when something does go wrong. Also with less components in a system there are less chances for things to go wrong. Things like a gravity feed to bring you gas to the carburetor means its on or off. No chance for clogged filters or fuel pump going out. Another learning curve is the two levers on the column at the base of the steering wheel. The left is spark advance and the right is throttle. The throttle is fairly easy to understand being as it just adds more gas. However be aware these vehicles flood fairly easy. So you have to slowly adjust them. Increasing the throttle lever helps speed increase when the pedal is fully engaged, and having the hand brake lever on the left all the way forward in high. The ride in one of these is very rigid, and with increasing the speeds the ride can get increasingly less comfortable. These cars are not practical for the highways and speeds of today's society. However this type of vehicle will likely outlast your children, and could be a fun vehicle in a small town or on a ranch. This particular units paint on the driver side rear fender has some spots missing. The vehicle drove fine up and down our half mile driveway reaching about 20 mph tops.
