1914 Ford Model T Touring Very Nice Brass Era Example
The Ford Model T is an automobile that was produced by Ford Motor Company from October 1, 1908, to May 26, 1927. It is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, which made car travel available to middle-class Americans. The relatively low price was partly the result of Ford's efficient fabrication, including assembly line production instead of individual handcrafting. It was mainly designed by an American (Childe Harold Wills) and two Hungarian engineers (Joseph A. Galamb, Eugene Farkas). The Model T was colloquially known as the "Tin Lizzie", "Leaping Lena" or "flivver".
The Ford Model T was named the most influential car of the 20th century in the 1999 Car of the Century competition, ahead of the BMC Mini, Citroën DS, and Volkswagen Beetle. Ford's Model T was successful not only because it provided inexpensive transportation on a massive scale, but also because the car signified innovation for the rising middle class and became a powerful symbol of the United States' age of modernization. With 15 million sold, it was the most sold car in history before being surpassed by the Volkswagen Beetle in 1972, and still stood eighth on the top-ten list, as of 2012.
This very nice Brass Era T Touring has been nicely restored. The Paint is in very good to excellent condition with only a small flaw noted on the driver's door. the interior is quite nice in real leather, with proper mats, and correct door cards. The top which was not erected for these photos, is in very good to excellent condition as well. The Brass is all very nice and will polish up very well. The engine compartment and undercarriage is all quite nice. This is a well restored T, that has been stored properly in a climate controlled Museum like setting.
I believe this car will run with minimal effort. I do not know how to drive a T so did not attempt to start it.
