1918 Ford Model T Touring Car
This Ford Model T had been restored over 40-Years ago with the intention of being a Parade car. That is, visually striking as a first priority and period accurate as secondary. She is now in good running condition, and has been driven in several Parades since.
The car was assembled from Parts, the majority are consistent with 1918. The Engine Casting number established a date of manufacture as a guide for Parts selection - this meant that there had been no starter. It has Oil side and Tail lamps, low Hood and Radiator. All Wheels are wooden Spokes, but heavier than those used in 1918. The Rims are detachable from Wheels which is a significant improvement for serviceability, but consistent with a later era before Wire spokes had been used. The Radiator uses the original Ford top tank and shell, but the Core has been replaced with a modern Core for more effective cooling at low speeds and idle which allows slow Parade speeds, and idling without boiling over. A period original (non Ford) Water Pump is also included to make the cooling system not boil as the original Thermosyphon system would do. Both the Radiator and Water pump necessitated using a 'Non-Ford' hose layout.
All Parts, Chassis and Sheet metal had been sandblasted and primed prior to repainting. The Wood had also been brand new too. The Paint is White-Acrylic enamel with Red trim and Pinstriping. Brass paint is also used where Brass parts had not been available. The Upholstery and Seat materials are Naugahyde. The entire Body is considered to be a Touring-style, but no Top is included. Spark coils are original wood. Both Paint and Tires are in good condition, and this car has always been Garage kept.
Videos of the car driving can be provided if requested.
