If I were paying 60K for one I would not want one with hydraulic front brakes and a modern looking auxillary overdrive?? Does seem have all other nice early 09' features but missing a fiveball carby??

It does look very nice and the brakes do blend in, but I wonder what the theory is behind fitting every second pan nut&bolt upside down!

Seems the seller a bit liberal in the use of the phrase" all original"

The license plate says it is a 1909, so it must be true.

Was it just the 1908 model that had two brake handles? The second one was reverse if I remember right.

Looks like one of Orville Enyeart's old 1909 Model Ts. He was known for making four-wheel hydraulic brakes and overdrive assemblies for Model Ts. He had assembled many 1909s that were built to be driven and was a well known member of the Long Beach Model T Club. I believe he was also a "King of the Hill" winner at one of the famous LBMTC Shell Hill Climbs.

I remember Orville Enyeart from the MTFCA National Tour in 1974 in Dearborn, MI.

He was driving a '09 Roadster painted white. It had 4 wheel hydraulic brakes and and automatic transmission in it- I think it might have been a Ford C-4 transmission. That car ran incredibly smooth. :-)

Marvin - even the first Model T's made in october 1908 were called 1909 models by Ford. About 300 cars were made in 1908, all with two levers, the change to the standard configuration with three pedals and one lever came in february 1909 at about number 750. Next big change came in April at nr 2,500 when the water pump was discontinued. The engine in the ad looks to have a number in the three thousands?
Ford had made about 8,100 cars by the end of the model year in July an about 14,100 by the end of 1909.
