The body of the Model T is made mostly of fir because Serge wanted to accentuate the curves of the car using the thick grain of the wood. The pieces of wood were arranged so that the grain would follow and enhance the shape of the car. The doors open, and the wheels turn and spin. The hood and trunk also open.
The car measures 9.5"L x 4.5"W x 5"H, and is made from fir, walnut, maple, mahogany, yellow cedar and yew woods.
