244-1915 Ford Model T
Item Details
Description
Specifications:20bhp, 176.7 cu. in. cast iron L-head inline four-cylinder engine, two-speed planetary transmission with reverse, transverse leaf spring suspension and rear wheel mechanical brakes. Wheelbase: 100"Since its inception, the Ford Model T was the most affordable and attainable car on the road. In its 19 years of production, it would serve as the benchmark automobile for the Ford Motor Car Company by ushering the relatively small and innocuous car company into the world market. Now truly an icon, Henry Ford's proud little motor car awakened a nation to a faster and more reliable means of transportation.As the automotive landscape took shape, Ford adapted by making changes and improvements to the Model T bloodline. Early changes included shifting the steering wheel from the right hand side of the car to the left, which greatly improved the confidence of drivers commuting the ever-congesting byways and boulevards of America.By 1915, Model Ts were rolling off the first assembly line in the company's history, reducing chassis time by some eleven hours. It would also mark the first year Model Ts reached more than 300,000 units. In 1915, the Model T also underwent a few changes that included the addition of a new metal cowl section that tapered down to the aluminum hood, which now had louvers on the side panels. The rear fenders were curved to follow the wheel outline enhancing the car's overall look. And, for the first time, the headlamps were electrically powered courtesy of a magneto. The 1915 Ford Model T Roadster pictured here all in black was purchased shortly after it won a First in Class award at the Greenfield Village Concours in 2000. The Model T, like the others in the McMullen Collection had been restored by a marque expert in Traverse City, Michigan, adhering very strictly to original specifications. Mr. McMullen took the Model T to the annual AACA national meet in Hershey Pennsylvania the fall of 2000, where the Roadster earned its Junior badge. In its current, virtually flawless condition, there is no doubt that the Ford would easily earn its Senior and Premier badges at any upcoming AACA event. The significance of the Model T in automotive history is immeasurable, and for the collector seeking to own a piece of that history, there is no finer example of a 1915 Model T than the Roadster presented here.
