This beautiful 1914 Model T holds a special place in our 37th Annual New England Auto Auction. The vehicle is the product of a year-long educational collaboration with the Mid-Coast School of Technology. Our staff and volunteers partnered with students to construct this pickup from donated parts, students built the wooden bed and did the paint work. Now we'll be offering this great piece to one lucky bidder on August 16. The new owner of this T will surely enjoy it immensely (it drives wonderfully!) and will be able to operate this vehicle knowing that it is representative of an effort to usher in the next generation of collector car enthusiasts ensuring a bright future for these wonderful pieces of history. Need more incentive? All of the proceeds of sale from this Express Pickup will benefit ongoing educational partnerships between OHTM and area youth/ youth organizations.
