Higher resolution photo of 1912 French two door sedan

Post by Rob » Tue Apr 02, 2019 7:39 am

Among the photos of French T's in a photo album at Benson Library was a clear photo of the two door sedan that made the 1912 Monte Carlo Rally. The painted radiator with striping, spare tire fender, along with electric headlamps are interesting early features of this sedan. Since the striping is probably black, I wonder what color the car was?

Weren't ALL Model Ts originally red ?? :shock:

I love to see pictures of custom coach-work, especially when fitted to a Model T. Love that side-mount spare with a fender well, yet !! Thanks for posting this.
