I bought a 1912 partially restored 1912 touring. Not a bitsa car like the 14 I just sold. I hope you don't mind, but I have a lot of questions. It has the front door and dummy door. Just sharing some pictures.
I like it !!
Nice! 1912 is perhaps the year of the Model T that had the most changes. Several body styles, constantly evolving details. From the pictures it appears you have most of the right stuff Robert.
Looks like there is a front bearing seal missing.
Nice looking car, and it looks like it has lots of potential! I'm sure that she'll keep you occupied for quite a while!
Mine looked like yours when I got it in 1982 Mine has the rear door handles on the inside of the door Have a lot of fun restoring it. Lee
Truly a thing of beauty!
Very nice ...
Thanks for posting !
I suppose it's a long way off Robert but I was wondering if that upholstery is salvageable? Nice car. You have a lot of "main" (read expensive) parts. Any ideas on the engines condition? I'm assuming that boat anchor of a trans is a spare.
I hope you got the doors with it. If not, they seem to be around. Nice project.
Congratulations! If I could have any Model T Ford I wanted, I'd pick a 1912 Touring. Love that diamond-tufted upholstery, open front seating, those long windshield braces and more brass than a Pentagon luncheon!
This 1912 is very beautiful.
The seats appear to be in good condition, is that you will keep the cook in this state?
Thanks guys! I have the doors -dummy and real, they came with the car. They are in very good condition. After vacation (to the Caribbean) I will take the engine and trans to a guy in our club to inspect and rebuild. The engine was rebuilt about ten years ago, but I do not know what it is like on the inside. So it needs an inspection.
What a FIND!!!!
Beautiful. I'm partial to 1912's too. Good luck with the restoration.
Do you know the body maker? Can you find a body number?
I'm glad you have the doors for it!
: ^ )
Bob, who sold you that thing. There's no way you should have to lay awake night after night dealing on such a car. Why don't you go ahead and send it up to me here in Rice MN and I'll take the necessary steps to deal with it accordingly. I hope you understand that because I'm doing you a favor, it'll be up to you to pay for the shipping and you'll have to pay me a small representative fee. :-)
That is one sweet deal. Congratulations.
Very Nice!! Congrats and good luck....Chip.
Thanks for all the kind words. I am going on a Caribbean cruise tomorrow which I absolutely love! But I'm bring my T magazine and vender book to look at! Can't wait to get home and work on her.
There is a body number on the front seat and a body number on the rear seat???? I will report after the trip. Bob
