If anyone of you have been playing with the idea of a Model T Speedster, I would strongly suggest this one as a Buy it Now:
I am not affiliated with the seller, have never seen the car, and have no interest in another Speedster.
Interesting Perfex accessory radiator too.
All I see in those pics is a lot of work to be done. It'll be interesting to see what it brings.
I agree with Mike. It has a kind of good look but with the block patched with JB weld I have to wonder about the rest of the workmanship. Radiator is falling apart, wheels are iffy, tires at least 75 years old.
I looked at that last night. I do not recall that I have ever seen that one before and do not know who had it. I spent most of my life in the Bay Area and have many friends in Redwood City.
It is not a "real" '14. If you want to qualify for the HCCA, you would have to replace most of it. But overall, it does have a good look. The seat "may" be that early. But even the radiator has patent dates on it from the early '20s. So even it isn't really early. It could be a fun car however.
It would probably take a fair amount of work to get it ready to do endurance runs. But for under $4000. You could do worse. (I think 3K is closer to right)
I may have to put together another "minimalist" speedster. I like them every time I see a well balanced one.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Someone threw together spare parts to build a speedster and lost interest. Like Wayne said a minimal car can be a lot of fun.
Any T parts put together with a title is worth something.
I know who the seller is. I agree with Wayne it would need a fair amount of work, bit its a good start.
I bid two cents.
I bid something since it has a current title and registration.
It went for $3800.
It was less than 30 miles from my house.
So that's the going price for that.
