Description for Ford Model T 1927

Restored 1927 Model T Ford Touring. Car is painted in authentic green and black colors to resemble the 15 millionth model T that rolled off the assembly line in 1927. The 15 millionth Ford was one of the last Model Ts made. I bought this car half restored in 2000. It was completely rebuilt mechanically, nd I personally oversaw the body and interior restoration. Both the body and interior were done by competent professionals. The car was completed in 2004. That year, he car won first place in its category at the Salt Lake City Concourse D'Elegance car show. Some restoration details are not quite complete, ut could easily be finished. For example, ear-view mirrors, windshield wiper and the interior light have not yet been added, ut it does come with a pair of 1927 Utah license plates.

Many of my childhood dreams are wrapped up in this car. When I was about 10 years old, spotted an old black T parked at a rural Utah service station. The car was for sale, o I convinced my grandma to pull in so I could make a deal with the attendant. He politely wrote the price on a scrap of paper and told me to give it to my daddy. Well, thought sure my dad would want it. Unfortunately, e didn't want to pay the $1,000 asking price which in the early 1980s was a lot for a car that likely didn't run. My grandma convinced me that it would probably just sit out and just get shot full of holes anyway. My dad did have a gift for me though. A wooden coil box belonging to a Model T that he found when he was young. Years later, hat same coil donated parts that contributed to the restoration of this car.

This car's history, s far as I can trace it, s typical of most Model Ts. Back in the 1970s, frame was secured, hen an engine. Parts were added until a complete car began to emerge. Some reproduction parts were acquired, thers were rebuilt and assembly began. Frame originally belonged to a 1926 T, ut was reborn as a 27 when it was rebuilt to look like the 15 millionth Ford. The car changed hands once in the late 1990s, efore responsibility was turned over to me. Needless to say, his is not a numbers matching car, ut is an exceptional, ead turning machine that maintains a true feeling of authenticity.

Overall, he condition of this car is excellent. It runs and drives well. Some flaws, hich are common to Model Ts, nclude loose steering, eaking gaskets, eaky radiator cap, uestionable braking efficiency, nd is prone to overheat. There are some minor paint chips here and there that I attempted to document in the photos as well. The car does have an upgraded Ruxtell, wo-speed rear axle. Car has been driven less than a thousand miles since it was mechanically overhauled. Tires are also like new.

Owning a Model T is an adventure, ne that I hope to repeat when the time is right. They are cantankerous, attly, oisy, ot machines. They are prone to breakdown, nd are difficult to drive. I knew nothing about how to even start it when I first bought it, nd I had to call some friends over to show me how it worked. You Tube was completely worthless when it came to learning how. For weeks I called them on a regular basis to overcome my deficiencies. What a trip though! I crave an authentic experience, nd I got it. I finally knew what it must have been like in the 1920s to replace a familiar horse with a strange new motorized contraption. Even with all my previous experience behind the wheel, othing could have prepared me for this. I have, owever, oved ever minute of it.

I am not that excited to let this go, ut other matters are more important. The only reason I am selling it is to raise money for a small business. All this car needs is an enthusiastic new owner who loves the journey, ne who doesn't care if teenage bicyclists are passing them. Someone who lives for an authentic experience.
