Barry’s 1923 Ford T Model

Feb 11, 2018 | Customer Projects

“A lot of rust. So we had to sandblast the lot but, it was a solid body and vehicle”. This was the state that the 1923 Ford T Model was in, which for a car of that age is not too bad.

The vehicle has been brought back to life by Barry Smith and Duco Fix It, mainly for leisure. The car was painted in the 1964 Holden colour London Green using a Helios Basecoat.

And the key to it all?… “Patience”. The entire restoration was finally completed in September 2016.

Barry’s vehicle was featured in the 2018 Auto West Calendar.
