1909 Ford Model T Runabout
Engine no. C44888

This early Ford possesses a very early engine number, placing it as a 1909. This makes it one of very few Fords to survive from this period. It is representative of the very earliest type of the most significant car of the 20th century.

Ford Model Ts evolved during their near 20 year run and the early cars tend to have the most distinctive and varied characteristics. The early types had some special coachwork offerings like this open runabout style which featured a simple and lightweight two-seater with a single occasional seat in the back. They are beloved for their clean and elegant and judicious use of brass.

Though clearly fitted with a 1909 engine, a careful examination of the rest of the car is recommended as a number of parts have been identified as from different year Fords. This is a very worthwhile project to revive a very early piece of Ford Model T history.
