I found this car for sale and it looks good until you get to the back of the car.
What is the purpose of this?
It's like unfinished to me, but there has to be a reason.
It looks to me like the chassis has been shortened.
I love the front axle.
The seat looks like it is cozy for two, or for one really fat guy...
: ^ )
It's a speedster. Who ever built it liked it that way. If you buy it then you can change it to suit your own tastes.
That's a 1916 in the same way that I'm Lady Gaga's twin sister (i.e. not at all). It's a hodgepodge of parts from many different years, including some non-Ford. I notice they don't show you what's under the hood. Some people will like it, but there's too much obviously modern improvised stuff to suit by taste. Maybe I missed something, but I didn't see a price for anything except German papers or transport to Britain.
Kinda looks like a pre-war MG.
Price is posted EUR 14500
That is $19,166, awfully big bucks for this T but being in Germany makes things different!
The back fenders are extra front fenders that someone evidently had on hand.
Nahhh,.........better forget that one Renea. The way you drive Model "T's, and with the mileage you'd put on that one, you'd soon wear the tyres off of it, and it would be pretty difficult and expensive to replace those tyres, 'cause all we can get here are tires, and I'm sure you can't replace those tyres with our tires! Nahhh,....better pass on that one,.......harold
I looked at this and thought.....man, that is not for me...I think maybe he forgot what he wanted to do with the rear end. I definitely did not follow his train of thought with this. Besides it wouldn't be "cute" going down the road. (((snicker))) I am more of a "Traditional T" kind of person.
The last thing I want to do is pick apart someone's car.
Harold, I definitely need to pass on this one; John has officially started using the trailer for T part storage. He came home with more goodies. Give him a call.
PART STORAGE!!! What'll I do if I break down again??? Need ta' keep that trailer ready at all times, right?
Yeah,....I caught that Renea. I noted that thread where he spoke of "picking up a mess of '15 parts along with that pickup box! Man! I don't know who has "the bug" more, you or the 'ol man!
Seriously, I don't know of any couple that has a more serious case of "the disease" than you and John! I think it's great! Pretty busy right now getting the our motorhome ready for a trip to Bellingham for a New Year's party and maybe an extra day or two up there with old friends, but when we get home, I'll call John, that is if I don't see you guys at the next breakfast "T" club meeting. Hey, is that next Saturday? By the way, hope you're on the fast road to recovery Renea,......Later,.....harold
Not original anymore but not bad. Looks like they modeled it off a different car. Should be easy to park and have a tight turning circle now.
Wish I could find a nice available lady that loved Model T's like that.
