This is a very nice example that is sure to help make its new caretaker many happy memories!

THE ESSENTIALS

We are excited to be offering soon a fully restored Model T Roadster Pick-up truck.  It’s been many years since we’ve driven one so we are excited to be receiving it into our inventory.  This was said to be a nice Colorado Model T that was painstakingly restored to correct standards and includes an electric starter.  It is very attractive in its present livery of green with black fenders, black interior and top with contrasting red wire wheels with white wall tires.

This truck had been acquired to be part of a collection in Virginia about 15 years ago.  The former owner was touring through the Southwestern states and saw a similar truck and loved it.  In the mid-1990’s his wife then bought him one as a present!

However, for most of the first ten years it had been extensively restored.  This 1927 Ford Model T roadster pickup truck is a rare Model T that is seldom seen. Finished in green with black fenders and top, the truck has recently received a new wood bed which looks great.

The restoration included a new truck bed, all new wood, new top, interior, wiring, etc.  As you would expect from a full restoration, this truck presents itself well.

The date was April 25, 1925 and on that date the Ford Motor Company introduced their first factory produced pickup truck. This new model was officially called the Ford Model T Runabout with Pickup Body. And Ford priced this new truck at $281.00 F.O.B. Detroit. In basic terms this new Ford was a roadster type pickup with an all steel bed that was 56 inches long, 40 inches wide, and 13 inches high. The sides of the bed had pockets for stakes and the tailgate was adjustable. If you wanted, or needed, a longer heavier duty pickup truck you could opt for a Model TT (1 ton rated) Ford truck with an 8 foot long Express Body (but that wouldn’t be as cute as this!).

The price of the Model T Ford Runabout with Pickup Body in 1926 jumped to $366.00. This higher priced pickup included additional equipment that was either optional or not available on the 1925 model. Additional equipment now included an electric starter, battery, and demountable tires. And if you wanted balloon tires they were available too at a cost of $15.00.

Interesting Fact: The Lincoln Model T is, in fact, the Ford Model T. The Ford Model T is, perhaps, the most famous vehicle in history. Designed to be the first affordable vehicle, this car was named as the most influential car of the 20th century. This car signaled a rise in the middle class and furthered the assembly line method of manufacturing that dominated business for years.   With over 16.5 million units sold from 1908 to 1927, the Model T was eighth on the top ten list of most sold cars of all time. A 2.9-liter four-cylinder engine produced an unheard of 20 horsepower for the day and age and its stop speed was 40 to 45 miles per hour. While not extremely powerful by today’s standards, the Model T stands as one of the best cars to date.   Of the many cars sought after by collectors, the Model T is one of the biggest due to its history. Ford purchased Lincoln after the Model T surpassed the latter’s sales, and this led to Lincoln also adopting the Model T under their nameplate. The Ford Model T is the classic car that any collector dreams of owning!
