I am so happy... After looking for door sills for my '22 Coupe for 6 years I finally received a response from the ad I placed in the forum classifieds. To my amazement the fellow has them in stock in Nigeria! All I need to do is give him some banking information and my cell phone number and he will fill my order! I thought I would share this information with you folks in case someone else needs parts for their Coupe now that I found a supplier that carries everything I need to finish my rebuild.
Lucky You. LOL
Nigeria is a well-known source of hard-to-find T parts....
What do they look like? Can u post a pic?
I also have a pair. Send me a private message with your bank account information. No address needed.
Nigeria should be a place with lots of model T parts. They've been buying them up for many years now.
Another good origin for good original T parts is London UK, for some reason they always write me back with the same line, just need personal details, lots of personal details, Oh well.
I searched for 38 years for a Marmon switch box that controls high and low beams, parking lights, taillights, horn, and the starter. Finally, I ran a parts wanted ad in the Marmon club newsletter about 3 years ago, and lo and behold, 5 different individuals living in London have since responded. It just amazes me how many of those switches ended up in London when there aren't any elsewhere...except Lagos, Nigeria.
Scams every one! More humorous than annoying.
(Still looking for this switch box which fits the 1930 Marmon Big 8, the 1930 Marmon Model 79, and the 1931 Marmon Model 88)
You fellows have been looking in all the wrong places!
When I need rare "items", I turn to my friend Mr. Mong Hoi. He is the director of operations at the Prestigious Hang Seng Bank LTD. of Hong Kong.
Although Nigerian sources are an excellent place to start your search, they often turn to him for rare NOS "items".
Just have your bank account information ready when you contact Mr.Hoi.
I've been looking almost 4 years for a top and 4 fenders for my AUTOWA bodied roadster.I guess I've been looking in the wrong part of the world. I bet that's where all the 30x3 1/2 disc wheels are also.
You know they'll have a big stash of late 1908 pre production T's too, still in perfect original condition.........with 103 year old air in the tires.
Maybe l should send them a few emails asking for # 0002 or # 0003 , l'm sure its there.
