Wheelbase: 100 in. •From the collection of Ken Pearson •Fitted with desirable Buffalo wire wheels and a Jones speedometer •Accompanied by a number of brass accessories and spare parts This lovely Model T Roadster from the Pearson Collection is believed to have been purchased from Oakley Sumpter in Maryland some years ago. Finished in a lovely off-white with grey pinstriping, it has black leather upholstery and a black vinyl top. It includes a number of rare and desirable features, such as the vintage leather seatbelts with brass buckles, a Boyce MotoMeter, and a set of rare Buffalo wire wheels shod with Firestone tires. The accessory Ruxtel two-speed rear axle was commonly used on the T, and it still retains its original serialized brass tag, which reads "Four Speeds for Fords." Also of note is the 60 mph Jones Speedometer and accompanying plaque on the rear spare, which advises: "Police Notice This Car Is Equipped With A Jones Speedometer. Don't Arrest On Guesswork." Other items of note include a full set of side curtains and the brass folding windshield. The quantity of spares included with the sale of this roadster include a spare engine and transmission, miscellaneous gaskets, tire flaps, transmission linings, and a host of other small items. Presented as a high-quality older restoration, the fit and finish of all of the components of the car are very good, including the lovely wooden dash and steering wheel. Among the many brass accessories are the running board-mounted acetylene tank; the oil can mounted on the firewall, which is embossed with the Ford script; the brass bulb horn and bell; and the cowl lamps, headlamps, and taillight, which were produced by Brown Manufacturing, of Columbus, Ohio, and are also embossed with Ford script. For ease of use, the gas headlamps have been converted to electric, and an electric starter has been installed. Since this car was toured extensively, it comes equipped with a fire extinguisher and also has a complete tool set for roadside repairs, including a jack and other tire changing equipment, a hammer, vice grips, an air pressure gauge, and valve stems, which are stowed under the mother-in-law seat. This T was toured through the UK, Bermuda, New Zealand, and Nova Scotia, and it also participated on at least one Glidden Tour, as well as several Muddy T Tours; it awaits inclusion in a new garage, where it can be easily enjoyed by another generation of enthusiasts.
