To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Hershey event, 10 - 11 October 2019. Jaunty bee-tail FordPredecessor to the Model TExcellent detail Although most people correctly attribute the Model Ts simplicity to Henry Fords dislike of complexity, few appreciate the extent to which the T was a natural evolution of the earlier four-cylinder Fords, the Models N, R, and S.While the Model T made great technical strides with its cast en bloc engine and removable cylinder head, thermosyphon cooling, and transverse-leaf rear suspension, other T hallmarks were already in use on the N, R, and S: bevel-topped radiator with tall neck, foot-operated planetary transmission, and backwards dish steering wheel with column-mounted spark and throttle controls. True, the cylinders were cast in pairs and cooled by a complicated water pump embedded in the bottom of the radiator, and rear suspension was by longitudinal full-elliptic springs, but a pattern of Ford engineering was emerging. It would be theModel Ts vanadium steel, the work of Childe Harold Wills, that made the T so tough, differentiating it from its four-cylinder forebears.Purchased by the Merrick Auto Museum in 1998, this Model N Ford was previously in the Don Sherwood Collection. An excellent example of the bee-tail Ford, so named for the shape of its rear deck, the car presents very well in red with white accent striping, which contrasts nicely with the black fenders and black-buttoned leather seating. The varnished wood dashboard holds the coil box; there is no instrumentation. A black leather cape top with side curtains is included. The engine compartment is excellently detailed, including a New York registration medallion numbered 43257. With correct brass lighting and radiator, this Model N is an excellent example of the preModel T Ford.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/hf19.
