So much nostalgia today.
But hey, this is a street tuning origin story!
Stripped-down, shorn of bodywork and back seats. Even doors take a pass for this open cockpit road racer. The drum fuel tank is upsized for cross-country treks – and mounted alarmingly close to the passenger’s ears! “T for Two” is an appropriate little name for this cutie.
The T Speedster is updated with a three-speed manual and slightly modded motor details (Rajo cylinder head?) to keep it humming hard in 2017 and beyond.
With a Speedster like this, the typical top speed of the Model T would have risen from around 33-mph to a scary 42-mph or so. Big gains back in the day…
This sweet piece of history expects about $25k when it sells October 5, 2017 in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
