All of that and no fuel pump...

Backing on hills also took advantage of reverse being a lower ratio. In Signal Hill (~ Long Beach), CA there used to be an event for this, a Model T Hill Climb.
It's thought of as only one like it in the US. There's plenty of onlookers, local news coverage, and repeat participants. There is one specific hill but several that approach from different routes.
Driving a regular car on it, either direction, is not enjoyable for the faint of heart. With motorcycles being gravity fed, I avoided climbing some of them, definitely. Something about lower gears, higher RPM's, and a paper medicine cup sized float bowl.
...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...
From the web:
During the early stages of the Model T production, the car was available in almost any colour, except black. In fact the very first model came in red. Later models of the Ford Model T came with a variety of colours such as green, bright red, dark blue, maroon, brown, grey and of course black.
The car was only offered in black from 1914-1925, however before and after that various models of the vehicle could be purchased in a variety of colors including blue, red, grey, and green.
From 1908 to 1914, Model T Fords were painted in a variety of 4 to 5 available colors. All colors of were of darker shades. Interestingly enough, black was not offered as a color initially. However, from 1914 to 1926, all Model T Fords were indeed painted black.
