This T is going to be in the Excelsior Concours of d'Elegance this Sunday in Excelsior, MN. This T is a great example of a correct 1911 Torpedo. I am concerned over the misleading first sentence in the description. I know the history of this T and the present owner is a good friend. I do not think he wrote the description, at least not the first line.
1911 Torpedo

Nice car, some might say the color is too light.

I'm with Darel. I know Mark. Mark did not write this or if he did, it was edited and edited and edited again by somebody.

As compared to a 1910 touring or even a roadster, the torpedo, indeed, is completely re-styled. However, I would have said something like, "...in addition to the familiar touring car and roadster, Ford offered this sporty Torpedo runabout..."

And yes, the "dark blue" is waaaaay to light.

: ^ )

It's a very pretty car, but I agree that the color is way too light. If someone were to give it to me, I'd have to repaint it. :-)
