By 1929, Henry Ford’s black-only colour chart was discarded and customers had an array of hues to choose from. The list of standard equipment became longer, with features such as a combination tail and stop light, windshield wiper, front and rear bumpers, and a spartan horn.
This particular Deluxe example, fitted with numerous extras making it far more desirable to standard specification examples, was purchased by a Dutchman in 1988 from a vintage car meeting in Frankfurt. This bill of sale, including a prospectus of his antique car company is included in the cars history file. In 2011 a lot of work was done to the car to bring it to the condition that it is in today, including overhauling the engine and retrofitting overdrive.
Optional extras fitted to this car include the fitment of cowl lights, radiator stone guard, quail mascot and wing windows. Simply put this is a wonderful example, fitted with its three-speed manual transmission, inline four-cylinder engine and dickie seat.
