THE MOTORCAR OFFERED


T's built in the Walkerville Canada plant differed notably one particular aspect of their bodywork configuration, being the presence of a driver's side door which was designed to assist those accessing their cars from the left hand side, prior to Canada adopting the USA's policy of driving on the right hand side of the road. In 1921 Canadian cars predated their US counterparts in receiving the slanted windshield which for 1922 became standard. Production was now quantified by the calendar year which in Canada delivered a little more than 50,000 units, making them proportionately rare compared to the more than 20 times that of US chassis.

This Canadian built example would have cost its original owner CAD595. It is presented for sale following long term ownership in the custody of a Massachusetts collector, where it resided alongside its counterpart Coupe of the same year. Notably its specification includes the fitment of an aftermarket water pump.

The T is being sold to benefit Heritage Museums & Gardens in Sandwich, Massachusetts, a renowned institution in housing the collection of Josiah K. Lilly III. Photos indicate that in the 1990s the T was subjected to a frame off restoration. Following a more recent period without use, the car has been checked over and made to run with relative ease, work to achieve this included fuel tank and lines cleaned, a new battery, carburetor rebuild, new coils, new fluids and testing of brakes. It has been cleaned up well in preparation for its sale.
