1925 FORD MODEL T FIRE TRUCK
- In New York Fire Department livery
- Complete with hoses and ladders
- Good all round condition
From 1909 to 1927, the Ford Motor Company built more than 15 million Model T cars. Without a doubt, Henry Ford transformed the economic and social fabric of the 20th century. The most popular body styles were two and five-seater open touring cars; however, a very wide variety of bodies were available over the years including closed cars, vans and one tonne truck versions. Special bodies and many other parts were available from accessory suppliers so it was possible to convert your Model T car to anything from a 25 seater Charabanc or taxi to a racing car or tractor. Driving a Model T is easy; if you've never driven a conventional car. The accelerator is controlled by hand using a lever under the steering wheel. Forward gears are selected using the left of the three pedals, reverse by using the centre pedal and braking is achieved using the right pedal. Normal cruising speed is 35-40mph and fuel consumption is 20-25mpg.
This 1925 Ford is in the guise of a New York fire truck and is in good condition. We are advised by the vendor that she runs and drives; this open cab Model T is certainly an eyeful. To the rear of the unit is the hose, searchlight and water tank; running along the sides are the ladders. The seat in the cab area is quilted and in good condition. Sitting proudly on artillery wheels, this handsome vehicle is offered for sale without reserve.
