Many folks refer to the 1919+ Model Ts as "Veterans", while the pre-1919 cars are "Vintage" mainly due to the improvements to this last generation of the Model T. The next major change to the Ford line-up did not occur until 1927-28 with the introduction of the Model A. This vehicle is an outstanding example of the hard to find Runabout body style of which 48,800 were produced in 1919. Many of these models were long ago converted into street rods, but this car is one of a very few surviving "restored to original" roadsters. The interior and exterior restoration was completed in 2004 including new black paint and black upholstery. All of the gauges (that would be the amp meter) are in working order and a wooden steering wheel accents the interior. The most prominent upgrade to the 1919 model was the introduction of an electric starter, which made firing the inline 177 CID 4-cylinder engine a much easier and safer proposition for the operator. The transmission is the 2-speed forward Hi/Lo planetary gear unit operated by the three-pedal configuration. The original wood spoke wheels have been refinished and mount a set of matching tires. The car has the covered "turtle deck" trunk over the rear wheels behind the passenger compartment. Headlights and taillights are electric (6 volt) with two addition kerosene/wick running lanterns at the base of the windshield. This car is a very rare model that would be a wonderful addition to anyones collection. Please call 800-650-1055 or visit our website at www.autobarnclassiccars.com for additional information.
