1911 Ford Model T brass Additional Info:

This car came out of a collection in Tennessee and was in that collection about 10 years or so and was only driven once. Before that the car was in a collection in California and went into that collection when the car was only one year old. The car was purchased for a soon to be famous movie star who had moved here from Europe to her grandparents house in San Bernardino California.She drove the car once and because of a factory defect in the front end drove it down the driveway and into the apple orchard unscathed. She never drove that car again and it went into the collection. I researched the story and found the mechanic who at 93 years of age confirmed the story. The car is in near show room condition and is driven quite often. Has showed at Greenfield Village more than once. It has won many Peoples hose awards and best of show. I've driven it in many tours and it runs as good as it looks. I have hooked the tail and headlights up to a small battery in the tool box but everything comes off leaving the gas lights and oil lamps as original. It dose have a 2 speed Ruxtell rear end but I did not get the original rear axle. It starts perfect and many times I get a free start. The front seat has been recovered (at great expense) in leather exactly as it came originally. No rust, no holes, no wood rot of any kind. dose have accessory brakes connected to the pedal and handbrake. New coils and timer. I could go on and on . Good Luck. This is one nice car. Building a Speedster to race across the US. and need the money. Buyer gets the owners name plate upon purchase.
