Lot 016: 1915 FORD MODEL T 'CENTERDOOR' SEDAN

Motor Car Sale, H&H Sales Limited (13 September 2006)

Finished in black with burgundy velour upholstery, this particular left-hand drive example is described by the vendor as being in "good" condition with regard to its engine, gearbox, electrical equipment, interior trim, chassis, bodywork, paintwork and wheels / tyres. Part of a small private collection, 'SV 6466' is understood to have been "totally renovated" by a previous keeper. Dating from May 1915 (or so its quoted serial numbers would indicate), it is believed but not warranted to be one of just six similar 1915 'Centredoor' Sedans left in existence. Retro-fitted with such desirable extras as a Ruckstall two-speed rear axle, Rocky Mountain brakes and an electric starter, the past two years have apparently seen the Model T "professionally maintained by a mechanic who has sorted out the last few 'niggly' problems". Riding on new wooden wheels, 'SV 6466' was reportedly awarded the title of 'Best Prepared Car' at the 2005 Gawsworth Show. Rarer than the proverbial hen's teeth, this brass radiator Centerdoor sedan would enhance any Model T or Veteran car collection. A wonderful piece of early American automotive history, it is hoped that the Ford will possess a new MOT certificate by the time of sale. PLEASE NOTE: We have not had this vehicle running.
