Visually from its specification, this Model T would seem to date from 1915, which was one of the first revisions to the bodywork styles, when a fixed flat panel bulkhead became cowled into the body, this would later evolve into a fully streamlined cowl in 1917, but for this period, it took this form and was the last series to retain the brass radiator present from the origination of the model. Ford reached a milestone that year with the production of the one millionth Model T, it was also the year that Fords came factory equipped with electric lights.
To left hand drive specification, the car is predominantly complete, but following decades of storage will require restoration.
