Definitely a nice looking car with some accessories.
Also a water pump with polished brass oil cups.
Royce might buy it just to get the water pump.
"... the underside of the front fenders were buffed to look at [sic] nice as the top."
Very pretty. A ford as if produced by Cadillac.
Great to look at but I prefer an every day driver---let the kids climb on it. That sign in the windshield is a turn-off for me. But to each his own!! Obviously the result of a lot of care and effort.
Those white wall Coker clincher tires sure do look good, too bad they are not still made today. Lucky find by the restorer.
Nice car, but I wouldn't drive it ten feet with those shock absorbers on the front axle.
They are of the type that led to the death of Ken Meek.

This is maybe nitpicking but if he lives in Ohio and has owned it for several years why does it have a Pennsylvania antique plate on it?
The description says the car is part of a personal collection. Which is OK if you have the time and money to keep the car in that pristine condition.
I would say that most of the T folks on this forum dont keep their cars that nice all the time.
For me I drive my T's and I am definately not a show car guy.
For me its not being realistic to be in the hobby and not drive and use it.
A beautiful car for sure and in much better condition than Henry had it originally!
Dale, maybe it is cheaper to register it in Pa? I'm not sure, but I know it happens
Some things, I don't know if I will ever understand. I totally understand restoring (?) a car to the way you would like it and enjoying it by driving it and letting people look at it. And, assuming you can afford it, I can understand restoring a car to an exacting standard of quality and correctness. And I totally understand how much time and/or money it takes to make something that nicely (?) finished. But I do not understand putting so much into a car and have it both "unenjoyable" and wrong. Who do they think they are trying to impress? And who do they think will pay them as much as they think it should be worth for something that is neither correct nor exactly how the buyer would want it?
I guess whatever makes you happy. But from my experiences with a lot of people in this hobby? That won't.
Just me. Venting again. Go on about your day and enjoy the rest of this thread.
Drive carefully, and enjoy the holidays! W2
What makes you folks think he doesn't drive it? Some folks enjoy keeping a car really nice, and driving it....
I live in Wa and before that in Co. and I still have a T with Alaska historical plates, left there in 82. There may be more out there like this.
I with michael on this. it is very possible to keep a T in nice shape and also drive hell out of it look at my profile pic that car was restored 8 years ago and am on my 2 set tires. I also beleave that the car on ebay is nice but not over restored.
I know who the seller is. Berlin Center,OH isn't that far from Pennsylvania.
I have bought parts from him before, always exactly what he says if not better. KB
Nice car. I would toss the water pump and then drive it a lot!
Larry Gresh, is indeed an honest Ebay seller. I have bought from him before and i don't think that I have ever been disappointed.
Every car Larry has listed on eBay in the past looks like 100 point cars. I'd be proud to own any of them..! Not sure if restores them or has them done, but at any rate they all look Great..!
