New here looking for one that's reasonable priced and the delivery isn't high. I am in Georgia. Thanks for reading. Not looking for a project
Jamie, I've got one which is a total restoration project, but my brother has one which just needs a motor overhaul (maybe just reboring and new pistons would do, without any babbit work). I'd sell my project for $2500., but my brother has probably $7000. in his. Both are in the Houston, Texas area.
Thanks Terry I am afraid both might be more than my mechanical skills would allow to do them justice.
Jamie, check out the Ga and SC model T clubs. Bound to have a member who knows of a car available. They're (T's) all over our area. Good luck in your search and keep the forum posted of your progress. You may want to check out Craigslist as well but bring a seasoned veteran along for the inspection.
This one came up in just a few click search.
Thank you Gary , I never thought of Craigslists. I will take your advice on asking for help from someone who is much more experienced than I.
There has to be some close at hand where you live. Try local clubs, Craigslist, Old Rides.com. If their here, their there. And their supposedly "not here". (N.J.) Bought 3 over about a 12 year period. Looked at about 6 total. None more than 35 miles from home.
Craigslist had 7 right now: 5 in Jersey, 1 Fla. & 1 in Pennsy. OldRides has 21 listed. Not all orig. cars but all over the States.
The one Gary S posted the link to looks pretty nice. (I don't like the red on the wheel rims.) I have no way of knowing how good or bad it may be without being able to look it over closely and try it out. I wouldn't say the price is cheap, but it is not way out of line either.
And Jamie, it is a model T. You will have to work on it. But fear not. Model Ts are mostly simple and forgiving. (And fun!) Tinkering on them is part of the fun.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
I see your from Grass Valley. I have work ties to Lincoln Ca. Going to be there at the end of the month. I am going to go and look at that car its less than 45 minutes for me. I am an aviation mech by trade so a little tinkering is right up my alley.
Jamie C F,
Lincoln is about fifteen miles over the mountain or an hours drive around the mountain from my house!
