I picked up a vehicle for myself in South Dakota today for a change ....
This Model T was bought new by the family and over
time found its' way to the farm boneyard.
There is a complete frame under the grass.
Any guess on the year ?
The hood former says '15 or '16. I think the same for the cowl light brackets.
Any sign of a horn button near the top end of the steering column? Even just two little mounting screw holes? The electric horn was added to open cars around June or July 1915 and could narrow down the year. Also, look around the passenger side floor for a manufacturer's ID tag (about four by one inch size, and crudely made). They sometimes have a date code in them. If you find it, Hap Tucker would like details. It could just be laying in the grass (if not too late now to look?).
Congratulations! Welcome to the '15/'16 project pile club!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
I'll write it, I know everyone is thinking it.
RAN WHEN PARKED!!
Well I can buy it if I want to ...
But - what is the fair market value of just what you see pictured ?
The complete frame is there under the grass ..
