The Model T Ford is unique. In 1920, more than half the cars in the world were Model Ts, and when production ended in 1927, 15 million had been built. Thousands survive to this day, and there's a worldwide community of enthusiasts who enjoy the Ford's simple practicality, robustness, and affordability. What's more, availability parts for cars and trucks is excellent.

This book has been written by two expert enthusiasts with more than 50 years' and tens-of-thousands of miles combined experience of the Model T. It describes all the many variants and changes, and even explains how to drive a Model T - different, but not difficult. It helps you decide exactly what sort of Model T you want, and what to look for when you go to examine one.
