1922 Ford Model T Three Door Touring
Why This Car Is Special
The Ford Model T known in various names such as the “Tin Lizzie”, “Leaping Lena”, “Jitney” or “Flivver”) was an automobile produced by Ford Motor Company from October 1, 1908, to May 26, 1927.
It is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, which made car travel available to middle-class Americans. The relatively low price was partly the result of Ford’s efficient fabrication, including assembly line production instead of individual hand crafting.
We have a restored 1922 Ford Model T Three Door Touring here at Skyway Classics that takes you back in time to when Henry Ford made all steel bodied cars with steel fenders.
It is also much of a documented world traveler as it as been in Copenhagen, Denmark, Umea, Sweden, Luela, Sweden, San Paulo, Brazil, Miami, Doral, Ft. Lauderdale, Sebring, and now Tampa, Florida.
It was first registered in Copenhagen and still has the original Dane Vehicle inspection plate on the car.
It has only been lovingly driven 474 kilometers since its restoration in Sweden in 1969!
Our Ford Model T Three Door Touring is a find indeed that is sound and in great condition that still retains a lot of rare-hard to find parts.

It has had a recent front-to -rear mechanical refurbishment with the very early example of a “floating” engine oil level gauge.
The engine is backed by a Ford Model T band transmission which also functions very well in low and high forward and reverse.
