1912 Ford Six - The Edsel Ford Speedster SELLING WITHOUT RESERVE/ABSOLUTE




Description:

Proudly offered without reserve by Classic Motorcar Auctions at the 2012 Glenmoor Grande Salon is the well-known 1912 Ford "Six" Speedster that was built as an engineering study, raced by Frank Kulik and later refined for a teenage Edsel Ford.

The car largely sports Model T chassis components, however longer wheelbase, with a fully-custom body, which, though restored, is believed to be completely original under the finish. Likewise, the brass items and wire wheels are items built specifically for this car.

Under the hood, rests the ultra-rare inline six cylinder engine built by Ford rests - one of very few built for testing and the only one known to ever have been fitted to any car and certainly never to a production car or truck.

From the 1920s until 1985, this car spent its life in the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn and was inexplicably sold by them at their inventory reduction auction in 1985. Since that time, it has passed through the hands of two dedicated collectors, during which period it was flawlessly-restored to the highest level by Jack Basom of Hudson, Ohio. We think that this could be said to be one of, if not the most significant cars Ford ever built.

Be sure to scroll to bottom of page to see document from Henry Ford Museum about this car. Other docs come with car as well.
