In 1909, Henry Ford told his management team, Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black. That rings true for this 1926 Model T Roadster as well. Its black, it was built in February 1926 and its at MotoeXotica Classic Cars. This handsome little Model T Roadster, was a recipient of a thorough and complete restoration by the previous Nevada owner, under his 20 years of ownership.
Inside, the car has its original Dark Blue Gabardine and Light Blue Patterned Cloth interior (code 503). The front bench seat is in satisfactory condition, and there are blemishes on the drivers side, but original. There are mats on the floor and the light blue headliner is still in great condition. A two-spoke steering wheel faces the driver while the blue, metal instrument panel and inner door panels are in very good order. Fuel gauge is inop. and the left side vent window is cracked. Rounding out the interior are a factory AM radio and a Realistic cassette deck installed below the dashboard.
This Tin Lizzie rolls on Riverside blackwall tires, size 4.40/4/50-21 at every corner. Each tire surrounds a body-colored wire wheel, which were made available beginning in January 1926. The tires are in satisfactory order while the wheels are in very good condition. There is a spare tire with wire wheel mounted in the rear. As was common then, this car only has a drivers side taillight and windshield wiper.
Under the hood is Fords 177 CID inline four-cylinder engine, mated to a two-speed manual transmission. It actually has three speeds but the third one is reverse. The engine on this Flivver has been upgraded to include an electronic distributor, electronic starter, its six-volt electrical system has a new coil, wires and a battery and the engine has a new water pump, hoses and seals.
Inside, the black bench seats are in very good order. There are mats on the floor, the four-spoke steering wheel is in good order, the instrument panel is in very good order while the inner door liners are in decent shape.
For the final two model years, a design change made the greatest difference in the appearance of the car. The hood was again enlarged, with the cowl panel no longer a compound curve and blended much more with the line of the hood. The distance between the firewall and the windshield was also increased significantly. This style is sometimes referred to as the high hood.
Major features included a new chassis frame with longer front and rear cross members, larger rear wheel brakes, engine/transmission modified with new pedals, a larger brake drum, different fan mount, coil box mounted on the engine, etc., and the fuel tank was in the cowl.
The styling on the last generation was a preview for the following Model A, but the two models are visually quite different, as the body on the A was much wider and had curved doors as opposed to the flat doors on the T.
The Model T was the first auto industry benchmark; it was the vehicle all other American manufacturers competed with and aspired to become; its competitors were too numerous to list here.
If youre looking for a latter Model T, one of the last model years before Ford upgraded to the Model A, please stop by MotoeXotica Classic Cars to check out this black Flivver from Nevada.
