Details

Offered for sale at NO RESERVE from the Leroy Hunter Collection is this 1923 Ford Model T touring car. For many years, Mr. Hunter was a mainstay on the “Mainely T Tour” with this vehicle. A life long farmer and family man, Mr. Hunter maintained and cared for this Model T and used it as one of the routinely-driven vehicles from his collection. Removed from recent storage in the fall of 2015, this T has been started and run by OHTM volunteers and is ready for its next caretaker.

From the Leroy Hunter Collection

Leroy Hunter was a farm boy, working the same fields his family had worked since the early 1900s and that his sons continue to work today. When he and his wife took over the farm in May 1947, he set to work making it into an efficient agricultural endeavor, winning awards for innovation in soil conservation, forest preservation, herd maintenance, and more. This passion for life translated into his love of classic automobiles, and both his sense of adventure and his dedication to quality are present in the vehicles he maintained. Mr. Hunter was well respected by his community and peers, and was a loving supporter of the Owls Head Transportation Museum. Now is your opportunity to own one of the classic pieces from the eclectic and all-American Hunter Collection.
