Lot #695.2 - A complete, total restoration and is ready to show or tour. An updated 1926 engine has replaced the original engine as it provides for additional benefits. It has 176cid/20bhp 4 cylinder engine with a 2-speed manual transmission with reverse. The Model T was introduced in 1908 and remained in production in much of the same design for 19 years. During this time period, 15 million Model T's were produced. Every effort has been made to retain the vehicle's original authentic appearance while incorporating a few modern day items to provide safety and dependability. The solid oak and walnut body of the Depot Hack is based on measurements, patterns, construction methods and materials taken from original plans and examples. It has the original roof construction which includes the use of burlap, cobra vinyl, wood slats, etc. The restoration was completed using every method available to as closely duplicate the original as possible, right down to the latches, fasteners and hardware. The craftsmanship of the woodwork on this body is superb. The attention to detail and finish is hard to find nowadays. The vehicle has a modern day distributor, electric starter and an improved flow water pump. There are also electric headlights, turn signals as well as brake lights and new Hickory spokes on all wheels. The quality of workmanship on the vehicle is second to none; its appearance speaks for itself. This vehicle will definitely be a head turner at any show. For the seasoned collector or novice, this vehicle would make a fantastic addition to any collection.
