This car is Model T, which was first built in 1908,  it has 21-inch wheels and thick tires. The owner is James Zabala, a 26-year-old shoe designer for Sperry Top-Sider.

Mr. Zabala’s Model T is a speedster, built by his father, Bob Zabala, who started with the engine that came from his first Model T, a car he owned when he was 12 in the 1950s. Mr. Zabala’s 1926 Ford Model T speedster has a battery and electric starter, features added in 1919, about midway through the Model T’s production run of 1908-27. But he can still use the crank to start the car.

Speedsters were not an official Model T body type. But according to Bob Casey, curator of transportation at the Henry Ford museum in Dearborn, Mich., people began modifying the car soon after it was introduced.
