I have nothing to do with this auction. I just think this car is well done, even though it is red. What do you think?
It's funny, the guy doesn't even know the year of his own car! Interesting accessory turtle deck.
It's a 14 not a 13
I think it would be much more beautiful with pin striping on the body and spokes. Jim Patrick
Is that a brake light on the turtle deck? Colorwise it's a little over the top but I agree Jim, some pinstriping would break it up a little
It is a 1914 Model T built in August or September of 1913. So, I guess he could call it a 1913 even though the radiator plate shows 1914.
It does have pinstriping on the body. It's very light colored and appears to match the color of the wheels.
I see that now Dan. Pinstriping on the spokes too that match the body. Maybe striping needs to be a little wider. Picky, picky, picky. . I agree with Wes. I do like the car. Jim
No matter what year the car is, it does seem strange that the seller would advertise the car for sale as a '13, even thought it has a very visible brass "1914" mounted on the radiator!
As far as color, I particularly like red, however, I think what puts the overall car color a bit "over the top" is the bright red upholstery, which does not quite match (or contrast) the shade of red of the body color. On some cars, especially the big old "classics" like Packard and such, I particularly like the combination of bright red and burgandy. On this Model T, I think the red seat should either match the body color perfectly (difficult I'm sure) or contrast a bit more. Like Jim said, "picky, picky, picky", right?
Having said all that however, if it were mine, I'd be very satisfied with it and wouldn't change a thing! As Wes said, it's a very beautiful car,......harold
I love the key!
Oops! Sorry Thomas; you already pointed out the "13/'14" thing!
