Commercial Roadster
Chassis #: 147294
Sold for $20,900 at 2006 Gooding & Company Pebble Beach Auction.
This 1912 Ford Model T Roadster is unique; as it rolled off the assembly line as a rolling chassis it was placed on a steam boat where it made the long travel to Australia. Once arriving in Australia, it was given a two-seat open touring body by the Globe Motor and Taxi Company of Melbourne. It is powered by a four-cylinder 176-cubic inch engine that is matted to a two-speed Planetary transmission. There is a two-speed rear axle with Rocky Mountain brakes.

This car has been treated to a recent restoration and has been a regular participant in many tours, events, and outings. It was offered for sale at the 2006 Gooding & Company Auction in Pebble Beach where it was estimated to sell between $30,000-$40,000. Those estimates were a little high as the car found a new owner for $20,900. The Pebble Beach auction was very exclusive and it was probably a little hard to convince buyers that this was not a mass-produced vehicle but rather a custom built masterpiece.

Transmission is the standard 2-speed planetary unit with a magneto located in front of the flywheel. This magneto supplied ignition current generated in a set of stationary coils.
