Known History

We do not need to mention the commercial success of the Ford T and the turning point it represented in the history of the automobile, and more broadly, in the industrial history during the early 20th century. As such, each major collection includes a Ford T and many enthusiasts do not hesitate to hit the road for long journeys at the wheel of these cars.

The car we are offering has a comfortable torpedo body. Its serial number, which appears on a plate in the engine compartment, as well as on the registration document, date the car to August 1923, which is confirmed, in particular, by the shape of its wings which benefited from a stylistic modification this year. the. It was acquired in 2018 by the current owner from a well-known classic car author. The car had already received a restoration and seems to have been driven little since. The body is sound and offers a more attractive color than the perennial black. The upholstery has been redone in black vinyl and is in good condition. The mechanicals have obviously received the same care, and its owner confirmed that he started it two years ago. It will therefore be necessary to proceed with a restart which should only be a formality. The 6V battery is new. A clever electrical system for heating the cooling circuit has also been adapted to facilitate starting in cold weather. This example is a worthy representative of the "T", which only requires the care of a new owner to undertake long drives, made possible by the flexibility of its mechanicals and the comfort of its interior.
