1909 Model T Touring #394

Henry Ford crafted his ideal car in the Model T. It was rugged, reliable and suited to quantity production. We have #394 on display here at the Museum! The first 2,500 Model Ts carried gear-driven water pumps rather than the thermosiphon cooling system adopted later. Rarer still, the first 750 or so — like this example — used a lever rather than a floor pedal to engage reverse.
