so the number of this car:CA694075,surely is from 1915.
Glad you were able to find the same. What amazes me is the way stuff was documented more than 100 years back and that is what make's Henry Ford such a legend. While you were able to find out the YOM but even in those days the records were so meticulous and detailed that one could actually tell the exact month, date and year the car was actually produced. The T under discussion was produced/manufactured on May 20th 1915 and mind you there were more than 15 Million produced and Ford has records of each of those 15 Million right from 1908 to 1941 which was the last year a T's engine was assembled.

Why not drive it to Poona for the 15th?

What other cars are you importing??
Absolutely that is the plan my good Sir like all my other classics the intention is to drive this one every week as well. I am hoping to drive it to work just the way i drive other's.....following your foot steps should I say :-).

How I'd wish to drive it to Poona on 15th but destiny wants me to be in Adelaide to watch the India V/s Pakistan match

This is a picture of my grand parents, aunts and uncles taken in Secunderabad, in the 1920's, in the family car.


I'm trying to identify the car. My guess is a Ford Model T. Could anyone confirm this, please?

Hi, your guess is correct. At that time Ford Model T's were quite plentiful in India, most of them were manufactured in Canada being RHD. Do you have any more family photos with family cars?

Below is a pic I just bought off from E-Bay, there are two Ford Model T's seen. There maybe up to around 40 T models still lying around in India, including brass T and a lorry.

Cheers harit
