Desirable ‘brass era’ example with lots of pleasing features
Widely rallied while in the United States of America including award-winning at a Vintage Motor Car Club of America event
Believed to have been restored in the 1970s to a very good standard
Running and driving well’ according to the vendor
Launched in 1908, the T's chassis and mechanical components were made from exceptionally durable, high-grade vanadium steel. The Ford also featured a compact 2890cc, side-valve, four-cylinder engine that pioneered the use of a detachable cylinder head. Mounted in unit with the clutch and two-speed epicyclic gearbox assembly, it developed some 23hp at a leisurely 1, 600rpm and 80lbft of torque. Top speed was limited to around 45mph depending upon bodywork, whilst brakes operated on both the transmission and rear wheels. With the introduction of a moving assembly line in 1913, Henry Ford famously turned his Model T into the world's first mass-made car. A year later, Model Ts represented 56% of all automobiles manufactured in the USA. However, it was not just the sheer volume of Model Ts rolling off the production line that motorised America, it was the inherent quality of the design.
A desirable ‘brass era’ example, chassis number 568601 rolled off the production line in August 1914, which interestingly was the first month of production for the 1914 models, before ending in January 1915 for the introduction of the 1915 model year. Fitted with the attractive Roadster body style, the Model T is understood to have been restored in the early 1970s to a very good standard, before being shown at events and used on hill and mountain tours during the 1970s and 1980s, including becoming a First Place award-winning vehicle at the VMCCA National Rally (Vintage Motor Car Club of America) in 1975.
Fitted with a Ruckstell rear axle (providing four speeds for Fords), a set of four Hassler (Robert H Hassler Inc.) shock absorbers, and other nice period features such as Ford embossed lamps, the Model T is finished in Red with Black wings and running boards, wooden wheels, Black interior upholstery and has a hood trimmed in Black. Imported into the United Kingdom in 2022 from Colorado, USA, chassis 568601 has since been road registered here as ‘WC 1084’. Accompanied by a dating letter from the America Automobiles Club of GB, a copy of the Colorado Certificate of Title, import correspondence, and a current V5C document. With Ford's transition with the Model T from brass to painted radiator cars, the former (such as this example) are particularly prized by enthusiasts and collectors.
