1912 Ford Model T
|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
This Model T Speedster was built in the spirit of competition. This car is the work of Greg Gouveia of San Luis Obispo, California, founder of The Brassworks company. Mr. Gouveia has built 20 examples of the Model T Speedster, using genuine pre-1915 Model T frames and engines, as well as original Ford transmissions, axles and brakes. The engine features the 26/27 model year updates with oversized, forged aluminum pistons, a polished and ground crankshaft, and new Babbitt bearings. The tail lamp is kerosene-fired and the headlights are traditional carbide-burning units that are equipped to be fed by the addition of either a carbide generator or pressurized acetylene bottle.
