1907 Ford MODEL N 15HP RUNABOUT
Chassis no. 4908
Engine no. 4908

Model N Fords were generally delivered in maroon paintwork and could have options including a roof and lighting equipment. The recipe produced a very successful little machine. While Ford had sold a total of about 3500 Model A, C and F motorcars from 1903-1906, 13,250 Model Ns would roll off the line from 1906-1908 before the introduction the vehicle that evolved out of the success of the N—the Model T.

According to information provided in 'Pate's Early Ford Automobile Encyclopedia', Car 4908 was delivered on 3 May 1907 to the agency Fred A. Crooks of Malow, New York. Its early life is not recorded, however to judge from its condition today it must have been a car which had a relatively simple life as it would appear to retain its original upholstery 110 years later and in general terms seems to be a remarkably honest example. It is equipped with a 'buggy' style roof and side lamps.

By the mid-1980s the car had arrived in the UK and there it was registered for the road in 'EL' region. Plaques affixed to the front of its firewall, confirm that the car campaigned the 75th Anniversary Events in 1983 organised by the Ford Model T Register and later another organised by Britain's 1st Ford Dealer, Hendy Lennox in 1985. Shortly after that the car was submitted to the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain for dating and was granted a 1907 date of manufacture, tallying with its original order information.
Of all the cars in the collection, this is one that clearly displays an unmistakable patina of age and the inevitable charm that comes with that.
