Ford Model t speedster race car {ReBUILDING HISTORY the series}
From stock the modifications to this car start with the engine, where it has been fitted with a Ricardo aftermarket head, Bosch front plate distributor, counter balanced crank, aluminum pistons, and fitted with a period correct updraft carb, all together it pumps out around a whopping 30-40 hp. The modifications to the frame include -Lowering the car about 5 inches without dropping the front axle. -Setting the engine and driver, back around 6 inches. This is done to change the look of the car as well as help with weight distribution. -Also notice the period correct friction shocks on all four corners As for the gearing ,the rear axle has been swapped out for an original Hall-Scott two speed axle that has been stuffed with 3 to 1 gears . -Other than that I'm still running the original two speed transmission. Setup as a race car it is not uncommon for model T's to hit speeds upwards of 65.

Check out this ancient and rare Model T Ford Roaster. This T was built the same year that the Titanic sunk. This brass era Ford is all red, appropriate for a speedster/roadster. Plenty of brass adorns this super rare car from the radiator, brass kerosene headlights and running lights, to the bulbous horn cable, wheel hubs, rear tail lights - there are brass appointments everywhere. I am always a little concerned about the younger generations taking an interest in the old car hobby and then I saw the 24 year old young man owning this Model T. I felt very encouraged that a person that young would be interested in a 100 year old car. AND, he knows how to operate it! This Roadster was a thrill for me to see it much less record it. A truly rare piece of automotive history for you to enjoy. Thanks very much for viewng this 1912 Model T Roadster.
