Here is where our wonderful classic car community started. The simple, no-nonsense Model T.

The Ford Model T was named the most influential car of the 20th century in the 1999 Car of the Century competition. Stiff competition included Mini, Citroën DS, and Volkswagen Beetle.

Although ‘automobiles’ had existed for decades, they were scarce and expensive. In 1908 the Model T changed all that. Positioned as reliable and easily maintained, it was a runaway success.

The first production Model T left the factory at the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant, Detroit on September 27, 1908. On May 26, 1927, Henry Ford watched the 15 millionth Model T Ford roll off the assembly line.

This 1922 Model T Tourer feels more like a museum work of art than a form of transport; there are some similarities.  Our vendor, Mark, who has an eclectic collection, some of which are on our auction platform too, purchased this from a Ford Museum in Holland in 2014.


The Model T is a lesson in how far cars have come. Inside, the Ford was simple, spartan and functional. But it does what it’s meant to do.

There is a dashboard, but not as we know it. A small battery meter provides information. The bench seat is comfy and the controls, such as they are, are simply laid out.

The recognisable floor mounted pedals were pioneered in the Model T.  They work differently to modern cars, with a different pedal order, but that is part of any buyer’s absorption into Model T ownership.  The interior appears complete and in good condition. Mark tells us that apart from the rear seat, that it is all original. But the classic Ford is 101 years old, and Mark isn’t.


The most popular body styles were the two and the five-seater open touring cars – like this one here.

Contrary to popular belief the Model T did come in colours other than black. As you can see from the images, the steel bodywork is in good condition. This is almost certainly helped by leading a quiet life in the Ford Museum in Holland.

On the rear of the roof at the offside is a tear, but overall, the roof looks to be in good order. There are images with it up and down in the Gallery so you can judge for yourself easily enough.

All four wooden spoked wheels look good and there is a spare tyre, literally, just a tyre. Some period original features are still in place after all this time, items such as the Ford tread plates on the running boards and those lovely lamps.


The Ford Model Ts came with a lovely over engineered 2.9 litre engine, that pulls like a train and sounds like one a little too.

The first thing Mark did with this Ford once he got it back to England, was take it to the renowned team at T Service in Oxfordshire. The T Team went through it and Mark came away with a well sorted Model T and around £4,000 lighter than when it went in. But as he says, it had been in the museum for a while, and he wanted it right.

There are loads of good things about owning a Model T, one of them is that you can see the condition of pretty much everything from the outside. The images in the Gallery show a car in good condition.

The other wonderful thing is that they are one of the most accessible vintage cars. You won’t need any specialist skills or tools; they are a tinkerer’s delight and simple to maintain.

Mark told us driving it is a “delight” and “it keeps up with traffic in town but give yourself plenty of distance to stop”.

There is also a lovely badge on the front showing its participation in an event. That speaks volumes about the Ford’s condition.

Bottom line

A car that started it all and changed everything really. Fifteen million owners weren’t wrong.

It is amazing to see them still going strong and their appeal is enduring. It is easy to see why. Cute, fun, easy to keep going and great, great value. If this was a piece of iconic art produced in the early part of the last century it would be worth, what, a million pounds?

The Ford Model T is iconic. It is a work of art, but the best bit? It is affordable by all of us. That is exactly what Henry would have wanted. Grab a piece of motoring history. Good luck.

Please remember, our site uses anti-sniping software which ensures fairness to all bidders. So, if a bid for a lot is received in the last minute, the auction will go into a 2-minute overtime period for each subsequent bid.

Guide Prices?

We’re different. But you know that. And we’re always honest. In a sector where no two classics are same, how does anyone put a ‘guide’.

Well, everyone knows the broad value of classic, let’s all be honest. So we don’t need to tell you what you already know, do we.

The ‘market’ decides and the old cliché that ‘it’s worth what someone wants to pay’ is no less true. So why kid everyone!

But, because we are different, if it really does matter to you, that’s fine, we want you to be happy. Just drop us a line at auction@evoke-classics.com and one of us will be delighted to ring you back and discuss, it’s what we do.

Tedious but it’s vital you read this, please.

We will always strive to offer the most descriptive and transparent auction listings available. However, we can’t claim to be perfect. Your own analysis is very important and we are here to help and also answer any and all queries you may have prior to purchase.

We offer and positively encourage buyers to view, or arrange inspections for each vehicle thoroughly prior to bidding.

If we do take a physical, as opposed to a remote, look at any of the vehicles on our platform, they are not those of a qualified vehicle inspector or other professional. Nor do they include a test drive unless expressly stated.

As with all vehicles of a certain age, localised paint repairs are common. This specifically applies with classics.

So, please, unless we state explicitly to the contrary, please assume that classic vehicles on our platform could have had remedial bodywork of any kind at some point in its life.

Two final comments on images and photos.

The vast majority are supplied by vendors. Camera technology has and continues to improve significantly, but please note and understand that image and sound quality does vary. If you would like vendors to provide more images please ask us and we will contact the vendor for you.

If you are at all unsure, just ask us. It is what we are here for.

Finally, finally, finally. Please note that vehicles are sold as seen and a returns policy is not applicable. This is the norm for used items acquired at auction.
