THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This racy little number is an excellent example of what one can do with a Model T when it is stripped bare with the intent of wringing as much speed as possible out of the four banger under the hood. Understood to have come to the Bothwell's garage from the collection Genova and Sam Perricone in March of 1989, it was originally purchased for 'parts only'. Stripped of what was likely a standard Touring body, only what was absolutely needed was put back on the frame—namely a pair of seats , a fuel tank and a small box for tools, spares and essentials. A spare tire was affixed jauntily off of the back end.

Complete with a few nice accessories such as electric coach lights and a two-speed rear end for double the number of available gear ratios, the major bodywork on this car is believed to have been completed about 17 years ago. Complete with a few minor roles in various cinematic productions, it will no doubt provide the new owner plenty of reason to smile as he or she motors along in this bare-bones speed machine.
