eBay Listing: 1922 Ford Model T

Classics  /   /  By Chad Tyson

Despite 15 million examples built during a 19-year production run, an original Model T is a unique sight on roads today. For good reason — anyone with an idea on how driving should be will probably find the three pedals and lack of shift lever disconcerting.

A previous owner restored — frame off — this 1922 example during the 90s. “While not perfect, it is still very beautiful and close to being a show car.” There is some cracking in the paint and the passenger door handle’s nickel plating is chipping off. During the restoration the worn seat fabric was sent to England to match for reupholstering. The glass was replaced with laminated pieces in the name of safety, as the original would shatter into sharp shards if broken. Laminated windshields weren’t introduced until 1927.

“This one of a kind beauty will fire right up and is ready for you to cruise.” A few notes on driving the car that put the world on wheels: The brakes are only on the rear axle and mechanical/cable operated. Make sure you plan ahead for stopping. The throttle and spark advance controls are on the right and left sides, respectively, of the steering wheel.

In the last year 14 1922 Model Ts sold on eBay Motors. Good to excellent examples averaged from $11k to $16k. Click here to see the auction listing.
