Found this on Reddit. Someone stated that the buyer passed away shortly after taking possession.

Mr. Lahey: A lot of people, don’t know how to drink. They drink against the grain of the liquor. And when you drink against the grain of the liquor? You lose.

A new car today is more than 3x the car!

1919 Model
- Crank-start engine (starter was an option on the open cars, which the Touring was)
- "electrical equipment as standard in the closed cars," which the Touring is not
- Non-electric cars had no instrument panel
- etc., etc. [www.fordmodelt.net]

Interesting reason for a production change made in June 1919.

Quote

JUN 16


Acc. 575, Box 11, #745, Ford Archives

T-519B. Changed diameter for the hole for the starting crank spring from 1/16" to #50 drill (.070"). This change was made in order to use up 12,000 #50 drills which were on hand, and was to take effect as soon as the change could be made without holding up production.
