1915 Ford Model T Fire Chief Parade Car from Museum

1915 Ford Model T Fire Chief Parade Car from Museum Collection

Brass Car - in California for 102 Years

This cool car appears to be very original. It is equipped with the 4 cylinder engine, manual transmission, 6 Volt system, electric headlights and brake light, oil burning running lights, folding windshield, wood spoke wheels, speedometer, beveled glass rear view and side mirror, brass horns, wood steering wheel, crank starter, brass bell, tool box, fire extinguisher, whistle... Yes, this car really does have everything including the bell and whistle!

The car also has a vintage electric starter and was recently upgraded to a distributor and coil system. The car comes with a unmounted brass siren in the trunk that it appears to never have been mounted on this car.

The car starts, runs and drives good. It looks just like the listing pictures and it is ready to for the next parade. (See listing pictures that were taken this week.) The body and fenders are all steel and appear to be original to the car. The car does show some aging and patina since it has been in this condition for many years. We have not restored it because we wanted to keep the car just as it looked in the parades over the years... The convertible top does need to be recovered and one of the top bows needs to be repaired.

The California Title and Registration documents show that this car was first registered in California in 1915 and has been in California since. There even is a small 1915 brass California Registration plate mounted on the dash. The car has what appears to be an original ceramic Los Angeles Fire Department plate with #34 on the brass tab. The car also has the California Horseless Carriage License Plate.

This car is part of the Automotive Road of Dreams Museum collection that was located at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa, California. The car has been in the collection for 20 years and has been in storage since the museum closed a few years ago.
