The car came with limited history having been imported from the USA in 1973 and subsequently bought and given to Mr Peter Black by his sons for his 65th birthday.
A member of the Model T Ford Club of Great Britain was attending a breakfast meeting of the Puget Sound Chapter of the Model T Ford Club of America in Seattle and got talking to an elderly member about the early Ford cars. Mention was made of the restoration of a Model N which he believed was now in a car museum in England. To cut a long involved story short, this was the car I now own and some of its history can now be told.
During my search for more history of Model N #116, I managed to contact Bill Sheller of Umatilla, Oregon USA, who is a grandson of the late Roscoe Sheller. Roscoe wrote the following article about N #116 in 1964. I would like to thank Bill Sheller for sending me this unique piece of history about the car I now own.
