1914 Ford Model T Touring Car
Brass era Model T restored to first class standards. Ready to drive if you know how to operate the three pedals on the floor with all the controls on the steering wheel too. Hand crank model with no electrical system and Carbide lights. These early Ford engines were capable of running on gasoline, kerosene or ethanol.
This 1914 Model T is exactly the car most folks think of when they hear the words “Tin Lizzie.” The 3-door touring was the most popular body style in 1914, and will carry 5 passengers anywhere they’d like to go, provided they have the time.
It has a comfortable cruising speed of 30 mph and a maximum speed in the neighborhood of 50 mph. It averages 18 miles per gallon of gas using 60 octane. The wheelbase measures 100 inches and it rides on 30x3 on 24-inch front tires. The rear tires are 30 x 3.5 on 23-inch wheels.
The Ford Model T was produced by Henry Ford’s Ford Motor Company from October 1, 1908 to May 27, 1927. It is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, the car that opened travel to the common middle-class American; some of this was because of Ford’s efficient fabrication, including assembly line production instead of individual hand crafting. The touring car sold for $550 base price which would be $12,628.00 today. The Ford Motor Company built more than 300,000 cars in 1914. By 1914, when this touring car was built, the time to build a Model T chassis had been reduced from 12.5 hours to one hour and 33 minutes. 1914 was also the year Ford introduced his revolutionary $5 a day wage (that’s $14.25 an hour for a 8 hour day today).
