Here's an exceptional way to be at the grassroots of the motoring age. This 1926 Ford Model T Runabout is a great classic that has been given the right care and investments to look good and get you down the road with a smile.
The Model T is one of the most honest classic cars in the hobby. But even with over 15 million produced, this one will let you stand out at the car show. It starts with a clean and complete body. This was one of the years colors were offered for the Model T, but we all know they look best in black. So the paint has been refreshed later in life, and so it has the right gloss to show off the iconic front end and smooth lines of the Runabout's rear. And you'll appreciate the details, like the clean headlights, MotoMeter radiator cap, two-piece windshield, good-looking tires, and even a full-size spare on the rear with a Ford-branded cover. So this is a fine example to showcase the dawn of the motoring age.
The interior remains a simple affair, just as it had when it left the factory all those decades ago. So you get a restored durable button-top black bench, thick rubber matting, and just enough room for you and someone special. Controls were simple, and it's quite easy to master driving a Model T with just a few minutes of familiarization with the three pedals and the hand throttle. The grippy steering wheel makes navigation easy, and the view from up high is commanding. It was obviously decades away from air conditioning, but you won't mind it a bit as the wind in this roadster can simultaneously cool you and transport you to a bygone era.
The Model T's powerplant was the trusty 177 cubic-inch inline-four, which was rated at about 20 horsepower. It might not seem like much, but it feels plenty powerful thanks to a well-engineered setup with good low-end torque and smart gearing. You get to experience this to the fullest because the consignor states this was recently given a tune-up by a Model T specialist. And the way it runs with gusto today reaffirms the feeling of a quality investment. There's even a new coil and a new muffler.
This is the classic Model T that has an authentically charming look and a hardy nature that reminds you how this put America on wheels. Call today!!!
