It was at the outbreak of World War I in 1914. It was in the late 1920s, just before the global markets were hit by the Great Depression. And it existed and moved long before the birth of many of the most well-known automotive brands in the world today. A converted Model T Ford motorhome is about to possibly find a new owner after having a long life.
The recreational vehicle or RV did get some run time till the early 1920s when it was sold off. But from here on, it was abandoned for nearly 50 years. Time took its toll on the vehicle but by the 1970s, it was noticed again and brought back to life.
Although the exterior body was fixed and polished, the cabin required the majority of the restoration’s effort. The Model T has plenty of wooden furniture, a wood-burning stove, and a leather couch that can be turned 180 degrees. However, do not expect modern conveniences like electrical outlets and working bathrooms everywhere you go. (www.thenewspocket.com) On its main door, however, is a letterbox slot.
Although this specific Model T Ford has a working engine and is capable of moving, it is unlikely that its new owner will use it for much driving. Instead, it is a vintage unit from a bygone era that serves as a throwback. The units are being offered for sale by Bomhams and will be sold at auction on September 10. The starting offer will probably fall between 20,000 and 30,000 pounds.
