Wonderful old Taxi with a famous local history. A copy of the car's traffic permit from 1921 is included. The car is overall very nice condition and non-renovated in its original condition.

"The car has been garaged for more than 70 years, easy to get back into a running condition again. It’s a beautiful car with a good body and with all its original details."

Description

According to information, this is one of Arvika's absolutely oldest taxis. Sockets for the taximeter are on the dashboard and a picture with old official documents proving the car's history is included (see picture). The car has been in the car collection since the 1940s and stored in a barn for the past 40 years. It’s lovely to look at, as an exhibit, but also quite possible to get on the roll again after a technical review, new tires and a startup service.

Facts about the model

Den klassiska T-Ford modellen och den som vi alltid ser i gamla filmer. Dominerade gatubilden i våra städer under ett par decennier. Närmast outslitlig. Ofta använd som taxi precis som den här bilen som lär vara en av Arvikas första.

Att starta en T- Ford vintertid handlade inte om att vrida om en nyckel. Först skulle det göras upp eld i järnspisen för att värma de cirka 12 liter vatten som rymdes i T-Fordens kylsystem. Efter att ha stängt kylarens tappkran, som stått öppen, var det dags att fylla det varma mediet i kylaren. (Glykolen var ännu inte uppfunnen. Sen gällde det att dra ut chokereglaget under kylaren och ta tag i veven. Om det nu inte var för kallt gick motorn att veva runt. Men veven fick inte hanteras hur som helst. Den skulle dras uppåt med handens alla fingrar på samma sida om handtaget. Fel teknik och baktändande motorer knäckte åtskilliga tummar och handleder. Det fanns inget rent friläge på växellådan - när oljan var kall och hade kopplingslamellerna i motorns oljebad hade en tendens att vilja driva fastän de var frikopplade. Då kunde man faktiskt riskera att bli påkörd av sin egen bil, om man orkade dra igång den. Därför var en vanlig åtgärd att hissa ena bakhjulet vid kallstart på vintern - hjulet tjänstgjorde som extra svänghjul, och man slapp att kämpa mot den tröga kopplingen.

  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
