1919 Ford Model T Touring
NO TITLE-SOLD ON A BILL OF SALE ONLY
The Model T came in many configurations including a sedan, sportster, four door, pickup truck and whatever else Henry could build you upon your request. The early days of the blue oval were interesting, with Henry holding on tight to the corporate reigns and squeezing as much out of that Model T design chassis as he could. Legend has it that he took his potential executives out for dinner on the interview process. If you got your food, and you salted it prior to tasting it, you were not to be hired, as it shows you may have a propensity to make decisions without checking all the facts first!
For consignment a 1919 Ford Model T. This buggy is configured to take at least 5 passengers comfortably to their destination. It is in barn find condition, comes in the true color of black (the only color available) and is a piece of automotive history.
As a tourer we see a bit of a higher stance. Also, as Henry Ford proclaimed, "Its available in any color as long as it's black", and this car is in black! With its carriage open cockpit style rag top (which is technically not a convertible because it does not retract) it is a 4-door windowless tourer, meaning it can take several passengers at once. The body is rust free and has a satin finish of patina and age throughout. Simple fenders frame wood 30-inch spoked wheels, also in black. The top is in good condition and the front grille and all bodywork is fairly straight. Running boards are solid and on the front cowl just prior to the windshield the canvas covering is tearing off. Head lighting is on as well as a single taillight however not working currently.
A climb aboard reveals 2 long buttoned and tufted black covered leather benches. These show some wear and tearing in various locations throughout. These benches have upholstered sides again with the tufting and buttoning. The dash in very steampunk styling has oversized round black faced instruments with brass bezels and single knobs and dials as well as the steering wheel which is big and original rising towards the driver. Wood planks are making up the floor and are somewhat loose. The Model T pedal setup is there for you to figure out!
Under the hood is a 177ci inline 4-cylinder engine which is unrestored. A fine covering of surface rust and plenty of patina can be seen throughout the bay. A 1-barrel carburetor feeds this small mill and on the back is a 2-speed planetary transmission.
Showing some areas of surface rust, the undercarriage remains solid and structurally sound. Road dirt and slight surface rust are noted on the underside of the running boards and inside of fenders. Seen for the suspension are transverse leaf springs and mechanical drum brakes for the rear only.
A mostly rust free, structurally sound example this barn find will need some TLC but when finished you will own a piece of early automotive history and be able to see just how indestructible these cars were built in these simpler times.
