22.5 HP, L-Head In-Line 4-Cylinder Engine, 2-Speed Planetary Gears, Shaft Drive. Engine No. 694774 No other single car in history introduced the world to the adventures of motoring than Henry Ford's Model T. As these cars became more popular, he devised ways to make them cheaper to build and cheaper to own, while maintaining a level of quality and reliability. It was pretty bare-bones to say the least, but the Model T lives on today as an all-time favorite. Early models or those with brass radiators, are among the most desired by collectors such as this little roadster. This car appears to have been a full frame-off restoration with the sheet metal as straight, if not more so, than when it was new. With the body finished in olive green and fenders in black, a prettier picture of Americana would be hard to beat. On the left running board is the acetylene tank for the lights plus an expandable rack for storing items like spare cans of gas, oil or water. It is reported that this Model T has been used on a regular basis and from its gleaming brass it looks as sharp today as it did 98 years ago. Please Note: This car is titled as a 1914 year model but the numbers on the engine indicate it was manufactured in February 1915.
