the Historic Ford Factory in Walnut Hills (Cincinatti) was abandoned for years before developers refurbished it in 2002 now used as a mixed-use space, and a 1915 Model T is displayed there, right were it was created




The three-door touring Model T is on display in the lobby, the car probably has been repainted and the tires have been replaced, but you can't tell by looking at it.

Tug Brock, it's owner, said the car has remained in Cincinnati for most of its existence, except for a time it was on display at a Chattanooga museum.

The Model T was built in Detroit, shipped to Cincinnati by train in a wooden crate and assembled at the factory in Walnut Hills. The wood from the shipping crate was then used as the floorboards in the car.

Brock said the Model T was sold new by Ford in Cincinnati to Simon Zellner for $422 in 1915. With inflation, that would be about $9,700 today.
