Beautifully Restored 1926 Ford Model T Barn Find "The Ford Model T began production in 1908 and was affectionately known as the 'Tin Lizzie' and the 'Flivver'. It would remain in production in the same basic form for nearly two decades, during which time approximately 15 million examples were built. The new 1926 Fords marked the first major restyling of the Model T since 1917. New fenders, running boards, bodies, hood and even a slightly modified chassis made these Ford visually different compared to the cars that preceded them. For the first time, the touring car was given an opening door on the driver's side. The most significant change, however, was the choice of colors that became available. Since 1914, all Model T's had been available in 'any color you want as long as it is black' but the cars built during the final two years of production were available in optional colors such as gray, maroon, brown, green and, of course, black."
