1925/26 Ford Model T Registration no. not UK registered Chassis no. 12197222
By the start of the 1920s, the Ford Model T had been in production for 11 years, but despite its relative age the car was far from finished. Indeed, two-thirds of all Model Ts were sold after 1920! As one might expect, given the maturity of the design, the Model T changed more progressively during the Twenties, with few of the major revisions of earlier years.
Manufactured towards the end of July 1925, this 1926-model Coupé has been treated to a full 'body off' restoration. The engine, transmission, steering and running gear have been overhauled, and the hood, radiator, windscreen and frame, tyres, wheel spokes, interior trim, and seats renewed. It is finished in red with light brown/beige cloth upholstery and interior trim, while chromium-plated fittings include the water temperature gauge, headlamp rims, internal/external mirrors, hub covers, side steps and rear lights. Rubber floor-mats, spare wheel with cover, auxiliary water pump, and de-mountable wheel rims are other noteworthy features. The current vendor purchased the car at Bonhams' RAF Museum, Hendon Sale in April 2005 (Lot 620) and advises us that it remains in very good/excellent condition. Offered with a German Fahrzeugbrief dated 2002 in the name of Digna Lopez-Wilgen.
