For years the Model T Ford was the backbone of car collecting. The numbers in which it was produced ensured that thousands would survive, even while most of the millions of Model Ts built were used up, worn out and thrown away. More importantly, just about every potential collector a generation or two ago had a personal Model T experience that gave the car real, tangible, individual meaning.
Today we hear old stories about finding an untouched brass T in a barn in the 1950s and 60s. For 70 years the car collecting world has been searching the world for these elusive "Rip Van Winkle" Fords, so today it is all the more exciting as one of these has turned up. This 1914 T is just one of those sleepers a truly untouched T that has been hidden away in a barn since it came off the road in 1924.
This highly complete machine has been stored with oiled cylinders and turns over freely. A weekend of fettling might see her spring back to life!
Here's a chance to relive the old days of the hobby and land a true Model T survivor guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser wherever it goes.
