Hey there Model T owners, did you know that all 10,000 plus T owners are a select group of 1200 world wide, this is what some guy put on his item description....
quote "Here is your opportunity to buy and own a piece of history, in my mind the most significant model car that changed the automotive industry. This is why i bought it, as a car enthusiast i wanted to see and drive what in reality started the production, on mass, of the "family" car, i wanted to experience then compair from where we started and then understand how far we have come - and my god have we come a long long long way! Let me say from the onset, this car is quite a handful to drive and does not drive or operate like anything most people have experienced. In fact it is stated that there is less than 1200 people world wide that could drive a model T. So in saying this i will of course teach the winning bidder ( assuming there is one) on how to drive and stop a model T."
Maybe we should ask him for lessons to drive the cars we have owned for 20 years... Ray
Item Number... 171072297238
the seller removed the item from ebay
Probably ran out of breath.
he has only done it in the last 1/2 hour as I was looking at it around 9am your time, he must read he as well so I have upset another Model T owner. Ray
I just checked and its still there but the bids have reached $10,100,and 56c, with a day and a bit to go I wonder which bit is worth 56cents.. Search in ebay Australia... Ray
Is that a chain driven mag?
It is a chain driven distributor! This is the second time he has listed the car on eBay. Trying to remember the result last time, think it didn't reach the reserve. He converted it to distributor as he says it now runs properly and goes up hills, guess he felt it didn't with the coils.
It reached $9682.00 last time it was listed,
that distributor looks to have no means of lubrication on it's shaft, I also think it looks way out of character for a model T.
Kerry, I totally agree, I thought it didn't make $10K. I would convert it back to coils if I bought it.
I am proud to be only one of 1200 people that can drive a "T" LOL!!!! What an exclusive club to belong to.
Looks like lots of head room in the back seat or maybe that's deceiving in the picture. Seems like a pretty decent 26 touring. I have no idea about prices in the Australian market.
Something wrong with those top bows.
Looks like the wrong bows on the car and too wide.
maybe its different because it made in Australia. I remember our 1912 at a national T meet in Denver being torn apart by other T owners because we had 4 doors and are tires were all the same size That was about 1974 or so and was the last National meet we ever went to.
It sold for AUD$10,600. It was a Canadian built Australian model.
Hi guys, it will not take long to show up around the traps, that hood was some thing else as it looked like it came off the Munster car.
COLIN, we have different body stiles to you and a better range of colours but we never had tops that looked like that as I said above.. Ray
