That's really a great car for that, as the Model T was designed for the unpaved roads of America. That's why it had large tires with a lot of plys, and wooden spokes for flexibility. There's a fair bit of ground clearance, and it is geared low with a lot of grunt. The gas tank is gravity feed right behind the dash, so no fuel pump. There's no vacuum advance on the dizzy, you advance it with a lever on the starring wheel. The wipers are hand operated. All very simple and easy to repair.
