"After spending his formative years as a motor manufacturer experimenting with a variety of models, Henry Ford pared the company's range down to just one - the legendary Model T - destined to become the world's first truly mass-produced automobile. Introduced in October 1908, the Model T boasted a simple 100 wheelbase chassis that contrived to be both lightweight and durable thanks to the pioneering use of vanadium steel. The chassis track width of 56 was the same as that of a horse-drawn wagon, thereby enabling the Model T safely to negotiate rutted dirt roads. The engine was a 20hp four-cylinder sidevalve displacing 2,896cc and the transmission a simple-to-use two-speed planetary unit. By 1915 Ford had ceased to offer a range of colours, settling on just one - black - because the paint dried quicker, although some dealers began repainting cars in brighter colours after receiving them from the factory.
This delightful Fort Model T finished in metallic green with yellow painted wheels and black trim is in fabulous condition throughout much owing to an extensive restoration completed by the vendor’s father. First registered in the United States in 1927 the car was imported in 2017 as a part retirement project, still wearing US style plates the car racked up a considerable restoration bill which is all detailed in the comprehensive history file. Offered with a UK V5 registration certificate and details from its purchase in the US. Sadly, since his passing the car had been garaged but the family whom fondly remember the time spent with the car have had it recommissioned and it is now ready to be enjoyed by the next custodian.
