1926 Ford Model T Speedster – 2017 RM Sotheby’s Hershey PA

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.
