1911 Ford Model T 3-Passenger Runabout, also called a Roadster with ‘mother-in-law- seat. This 105-year old car has a clear valid State of Wisconsin 1911 vehicle title. Frame off restoration completed on January 21, 2016. I purchased this car from a dealer in Minnesota last year, and it was in exceptionally rough shape. Much of the car was original, and accordingly quite a few components were no longer functional such as the upholstery and other worn out parts. In order to get this car into road worthy condition, the following were some of the major purchases to restore this car to era-correct and road worthy condition:
A previous owner had replaced the original 1911 engine with a Ford Model T engine manufactured in 1919 which allowed addition of a 6 volt generator. Car has been wired to allow night operation with electric headlights and tail light. Original E&J side lanterns have not been converted to 6 volt electric operation, and can be filled with lamp oil and lit.
