I bought this “Tourist Kitchenette” at an auction this weekend. I can’t use it on my car, but I’m sure someone out there would like it. I have no clue how rare it is and I could use your input as to the price I should ask it for. I need to contribute to my “Restoration Fund”. It would have to be picked up here in Virginia. It has its original paint. Have running board brackets and all original drawers. Front folds down to form a table with legs. Has the original label inside top that I had to glue back into place. It is clean and used very little.Tourist Kitchen

Jerry, Here's a similar one I posted as an accessory of the day a while back that I paid $200 for a number of years ago.

You all have been very supportive, but I didn’t log on here to sell this thing. I wanted information on it. What you would give me for it is not what it is worth. We would all like to buy cheap and sell high but I was looking here for an unbiased opinion. Thanks for any help you might give me.

Jerry, I'm confused. I haven't seen anyone post what they would give you for it, or even ask to buy it. Jay posted what he gave for his to give you some idea of where to start. Maybe I missed something. Dave

How big is it, slightly larger than a breadbox?

I'm confused too. From the post above, it sure sounds like a solicitation to me.

I would encourage you to post it in the classified section or on ebay. I'm sure you'll get some inquiries.

We have something very similar, but less elaborate and of probably an earler vintage. We display it on the running board of our '26 Touring occasionally. My wife and daughter stocked it with period package goods. Like yours, the front folds down to become a table.

We photographed this one at the Centennial;

You are right David and Orlando. It does sound like a sell add. But I thought maybe I should show it here and get some info. before I list it in the classifieds. This was suppose to be a "Hey, Guys I need a battery for my "T" what should I pay for it?" type question. I was expecting maybe a "Yea, that Model T part sells for $8.50" kind of answers on this forum.
