Ford Model T to feature at Hilton Head

| 20 Apr 2012

The iconic Ford Model T will be the honoured model at the 11th Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival & Concours, in South Carolina USA.

As part of the celebrations the Model T will be presented at the Coastal Discovery Museum on the last day of the event.

Affectionately known as Tin Lizzie, it was labelled  “the world’s most influential automobile of the 20th Century” and was manufactured by Ford for almost 20 years. Over 15 million were built in that time thanks to Ford’s pioneering mass-production methods.

Joining the Model T at this year’s Concours will be 23 different classes including: Classic, Sports and Micro Cars, American Performance, American Classics and Production Modern (1949-’72).

Talking about the event, chairman emeritus Paul Doerring said: “We are thrilled to honour the American automotive industry and the Model T as the featured marque at this year’s Concours.

The event runs from 26 October to 4 November – find out more here.
