THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This Model T comes from the first year of Ford's "any color as long as it black" policy. While the factory may have made the color choice for the customer, nothing stopped the costumer from making a change, as was no doubt the case with this now maroon, 3-door touring. While the engine dates from the later part of 1914, the body work is reflective of the 1915 model year with its curving cowl treatment around the firewall. A brass California registration plaque from 1915 bearing the registration number 130761 bears testament to this, along with the fact the car was delivered new to the Golden State.

Likely a late production example, it remains largely original including the tufted leather, horse hair stuffed seats, wood framework and metal. The top and paint appear to be the work of an older restoration. Mechanically the car appears stock save for the addition of a high sought-after two-speed rear axle.

Acquired by the Bothwell Collection in 1946 from Frances Dolbear of Long Beach, California, this T has had a diverse film career from Roots in 1979 to Disney promos in 2000. Today it remains in fine shape, a lasting example of a Brass Era Model T.
