1909 Model T Ford Touring Car
by Gary Frenkel
Built at the Piquette Plant in Detroit Michigan on June 26th 1909. She was shipped to New York state where she was owned by 2 owners for nearly 100 years. Second owner passed away in 2008 and the car was sold to two fellows who owned it for a little over a year before they offered it for sale to me. The car has been converted to electric start, but I have the original one piece oil pan and hogshead. My 1909 Model T has aluminum clad body panels and was built by the O.J. Beaudette Co. of Pontiac Michigan. Ford refered to these cars as Pontiac bodys. I display her at all my local car shows around SW Michigan and particularly like to park her next to muscle and street rods, just to be different. I treat her like a daily driver and enjoy the attention I get while driving her in busy traffic.
