Footnotes

  • The Model T underwent a major revision for 1926, which was announced as the 'Improved Ford' in August 1925. In fact, it was yet another re-styling job and Ford went out of its way to reassure dealers and customers alike that mechanically the Model T remained unchanged.

    This Model T Tudor saloon is thought to be one of the examples produced by Ford in Germany for the European market, it was then exported to Denmark where it was sold new. The car remained in Denmark until 1964 when it was purchased by a friend of Kingsley Curtis, Martin Berry a self confessed Model T nut, who brought it back to the UK. Photographs on file, taken shortly before the car left Denmark and after it landed in this country, show that it was in good order at that time. On its arrival in the UK it was given the original Essex Model T registration number 'AH 9526' by the local authorities

    Used on the road up to 1969, the Model T was then placed in dry storage, remaining there until it was purchased by Kingsley in November 2006. Kingsley kept the car in storage, intending to restore it, though it would appear that work never got under way. 'AH 9526' appears solid and very original, the interior included, and still presents well. Offered for restoration, the car comes with Danish registration papers, old-style logbook, V5 registration document, dating certificate and an invoice for an engine rebuild carried out in 1965 when it returned to the UK.
