1926 Ford Model T Description

National Award Winning Steel Model T 302 V8 Automatic Leather Disc Brakes PS ///
Judging by the pictures included with our sale, this hot Ford's solid Dearborn steel was super clean before its $130K rebuild even started. But nonetheless, the car was subjected to a full, body-off restoration that stripped that all-original profile all the way down to metal. Completed to a level that'd make hot rodder Lil' John Buttera proud, that reboot was orchestrated by John Birosh of Penn Yan, New York. And today, embodying the impeccable taste of sparkling root beer or metallic caramel, the car rolls as a banner show piece that celebrates the sublime simplicity of Henry Ford's greatest design work. Fold the steel hood and you'll find a 302 cubic inch small block that was professionally built by Joe LaPine of Danbury Connecticut's Danbury Competition Engine. What's more: bored .030 over and fitted with a mild street grind hydraulic cam, that mill will likely run circles around any powerplant south of giant bores or trick induction! The 302's power flows from a proven C4 3-speed to a polished pumpkin that's fitted with friendly 3.23 gears. The foundation for that great drivetrain is a custom fabricated frame that's been both boxed and Z'd. That frame rides a fully independent suspension, which follows polished coil-overs, polished tubular control arms and manual rack-and-pinion steering with a Heidts Jaguar-style rear clip. That suspension stops when four polished calipers squeeze four vented rotors. And at the corners of the chassis, traditional wire wheels spin "V8" branded hubcaps inside two 175/65R14 Michelin Harmonies and two 225/60R17 Michelin Harmonies. Featuring an unbeatable combination of proven technology and authentic good looks, this Ford is the perfect car for any enthusiast who wants a top-notch build without spending two years and six figures achieving it.
