THE FORD MODEL T

After spending his formative years as a motor manufacturer experimenting with a variety of models, Henry Ford pared the company's range down to just one – the Model T – destined to be the world's first mass-produced automobile. One of the most important developments in motoring history, the Model T arrived in October 1908, ushering in Ford's new one-model policy that would see more than 15 million sold worldwide by the time production ceased in 1927. Rugged, reliable and easy to drive thanks to its simple, pedal-operated transmission, the Model T introduced more people to motoring than any other car. Despite its apparent simplicity, the Model T was an advanced design for its day.

For years the Model T Ford was the backbone of car collecting. The numbers in which it was produced ensured that thousands would survive, even while most of the millions of Model Ts built were used up, worn out and thrown away. More importantly, just about every potential collector a generation or two ago had a personal Model T experience that gave the car real, tangible, individual meaning.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

A real hot rod in every sense of the word, this Model-T features a Ford V8-60 motor originally intended for midget racers under its hood. One could call it quits modifying a 'T' after simply doubling the cylinder count, but the Ed Pink Racing Engines were called upon to further increase the output of the motor. As such, the internals from top to bottom have been gone trough in order to bring out big numbers from this small displacement V8. This includes: Custom aluminum front engine cover with integral belt driven oil pump, one piece bronze valve guides with 7mm diameter stainless steal valves, Velasco billet steel crankshaft, Ross pistons with Carrillo connecting rods and an MSD ignition. Further modification were made to the oil and cooling system to ensure consistent running temperatures and lubrication. The engine is fed into a Chevy super T-10 4-speed transmission mated to a Speedway Engineering quick-change rear end. The work done to the car is of extremely high quality as no detail was left unattended. A Ford steel body with a Marcelle custom tail sits atop the stock Model T frame which was boxed by the Kennedy Brothers. The look of the vehicle is classic hotrod with a rakish stance, complete with authentic Halibrand magnesium wheels and complemented with chopped bodywork finished in an equally classic coat of bright red paint. Inside, the seats are swathed in tan leather and the dashboard features the full suit of instrumentation.

Showing just under 1,500 miles on the odometer, this Model-T presents in excellent condition. From the brightwork to the paint and body, little to no flaws are to be found. A hotrod of this caliber is most certainly at home both laying down rubber at the strip as it is collecting awards on a show field. This Ford will undoubtably be cherished by its next owner.
