Identifier:
174291.2
Description:
These automotive parts go to a Model T and consist of a coil box with a lid, a cylinder head, a cylinder casting, a crankcase and a wooden truck wheel. The Model T featured a 177 cubic inch, inline four cylinder, flat-head engine. It produced 20 horsepower and a top speed of 45 miles per hour. Like much of the T's design, its engine was grounded in principles of simplicity, reliability and durability. The engines were frequently known to outlast the vehicles themselves. A testament to the design is the engine's inclusion in Ward's 10 Best Engines of the 20th Century.
