c.1912 Ford Model T Landaulette
Engine no. 5032508

This exquisitely restored landaulette is a fine example of a coach-built Model T from the early brass period. The subject of a painstaking restoration to a high standard, it is a sight to behold. Wonderful woodwork, upholstery and brass work are all done with high skill and craftsmanship.

During the brass era, Ford offered chassis on a limited basis for those seeking to have their car fitted with custom coachwork. The coachwork would have exceeded the cost of the chassis many times, but a handful of custom bodied Fords were built. These were quite different from anything the factory built at this time and represent a Ford with coachwork by an outside builder.

The formal coachwork is attractive and well-proportioned for the diminutive Ford chassis. The body has beautiful lines and fine details. The folding passenger compartment has handsome landau irons supporting the top mechanism. The passenger area is exquisitely upholstered in broadcloth with brocade accents. The chauffeurs seat is fine diamond tufted leather work.

Due to the high degree of restoration, it is difficult to say with certainty how original it is, and in a way, it doesn't matter as it is so well executed. It is certainly a striking and high-quality piece and one that would make a strong impression wherever it was driven.
