Tourer
Chassis #: 2030280
Sold for $18,700 at 2010 RM Auctions - Vintage Motor Cars of Hershey.
There was little apparent change in the Model T for 1916, aside from the diminished use of brass trim. Prices continued to fall and Ford continued to improve output and the mass assembly techniques. Fiscal year production was over 500,000 cars for the first time, and Ford claimed calendar year production to be over 734,000 vehicles. The Touring car body style was the most popular, accounting for 363,024 sales.

For 1916, the magneto horn became standard on all models. The priciest model available was the Center Door Sedan which sold for $740. To aid in the increasing demand, new assembly lines opened in Louisville, Louisville, Kentucky, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

This Touring car was purchased by Mr. Ensor from a Tennessean in the 1960s. Production figures state that just 800 cars were produced with brass radiators for 1916, which means this example was probably a very early production 1916 model. It has an older restoration which remains in good condition in modern times.

In 2010, this Model T was offered for sale at the Vintage Motor Cars of Hershey auction presented by RM Auctions. The car was estimated to sell for $20,000 - $30,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $18,700 including buyer's premium.
