I have owned nearly 50 Model T’s and 25 model A’s so I know the good the bad and the beyond their mechanical limits of antique cars. This great late 1913 (titled 1914) Ford Model T is the nicest old Ford i ever owned. This car really does run and drive like they did 103 years ago. Engine, transmission and most moving parts were rebuilt within the past 5 years. Motor runs smooth with about 1 turn of the crank to start when cold and 1/2 turn when warm. Motor burns no oil and no engine noises. Small battery to start car with full strong magneto to runs once started. Magneto is so strong it will even start on the mag. I have installed a break light and also 2 small halogen bulbs mounted in the gas head lights. 2 large 12 volt batteries connected & mounted under the rear seat. I just replaced one rear tire, the other about 2 years ago with 75% tread left. The fronts have some tread left but could be changed in the next year. All kerosene lights, (2 up front and one rear) are functional. Everything on this car is Ford original. The car really does look as good in person as it does in the photos. I have a couple photos with the 2 man top up but much more fun in the down position. There is one very small patched spot on the top. I have driven this car at least once a day every day from April to November for years barring inclement weather of coarse.
