I have done some work on this car. Nice machine and well worth the money. Great driver. Given the fact that a new Warford is almost 3K you will buy this thing for 13K. That is a smokin' deal. The turtle deck looks nice, as I recall from the first time I saw it. If you want a brass model T, this is a great deal, it would cost much more to build one up or restore one. I know the car but have no financial stake in the sale, just offering input.
Thanks Erick and yes I believe the car is well worth the price and I wouldn't be selling it if it wasn't for my bad knees. To cramped up to drive it any more.
Guys, what's the price again? The subject line says $16,000 but Erik, are you saying $13,000? Jerry
What Erick said is the brand new Warford and drive shaft is worth $3000.00 so you are getting the car for $13000.00. The total price is $16000.00 plus the trailer if wanted.
Sent you a PM.
Dammit why I need be short on money
I know the feeling Bob.
Hard to build one like this at that price. Great deal for a 15!
15 might be doable
Still on the market
What year is the Willys Jeepster?
The Jeepster is a 48 first sold in 49.
One of my favorite vehicles ....
Fell in love at first sight at 16 when I lived in Sedona, AZ
I worked at Casa De Flores Nursery & there was an older gentleman who had one as a daily driver.
He would not sell ....
Had a guy tell me the Jeepster was by definition, actually a "Touring" car! Is that true?
David: suppose you could call it that if you wanted. I just say it is a two seat convertible. Of course if you use model T Ford talk then it would be called a touring car. Same type deal manual top except the Jeepster is much easier to raise and lower. JIM: I understand that a guy from LA that might buy my T contacted you about hauling it to LA for him
Sale fell through back on the market. new price
$15,000 with new in the box never used Warford
$13,000 without the Warford. Will consider other offers. Will not sell the Warford unless the car sells first. If it does the Warford will be for sale with the drive shaft for $2500.
I am in Las Vegas, NV right now & can haul this anywhere if you sell it.
To those parties who might be interested in purchasing this ....
I would haul the extra turtle deck and/or transmission along with any other loose parts outside of the Roadster at no additional charge.
Thanks Jim for your input
Howdy Dick. I've done some research and it is possible to have the car's Salvage title re-registered. If there's no movement on it, give me a call and I'll help all I can. Jerry
Yep it is kind of weird that it was listed that way. I think the reason is that the family I got it from lost the original ownership certificate so they had to get a renewal which must be a big process in Oregon because it took about three months and I think they told them that the T had been rebuilt and when in fact they should have said restored. I didn't realize that California DMV coded it as a salvage title for quite a few months after I received the new title as all I did when I received it was put it in the file without even looking at it as I knew what it was. I will not do that again. Has any one in California ran into this problem and if so did you try to get the salvage removed from the title?
While a salvage title might be a concern with a newer vehicle - I can't see it affecting the value of a 1915 Model T.
In reality - just about every Model T on the road is built from other cars - technically most are salvage vehicles.
The gentleman I was selling my T to was going to finance thru a fiance company named Woodside Credit I believe. They finance antique and special vehicles from what I heard and they would not finance it because of the salvage statement. I am with you on the belief that the term means nothing for the old antique cars and you go more by your inspection of the car than any other thing. The gentleman was completely approved by them and all of that until they saw the title.
Jerry told me that in his email.
One would think that a financier that specializes in classic & antique autos would be able to differentiate when considering a 1915 Model T ....
Jim, you raise two very good points. When I first heard Salvage I thought, yeah I guess I can see their point in protecting their investment in what they might see as "damaged goods." But thinking about what you you say I'm going... "Hell yeah. Three quarters of ALL 100 year old cars are going to be made up of parts from here, there and everywhere." And you're right, they should know that, or at least acknowledge it in their business model.
Dick, I'll call you shortly. Jerry
Still on the market will listen to offers for entire package to include brand new still in the box Warford,two axle trailer, and the 15 Roadster will sell car separate.
I am leaving Las Vegas, NV for Austin, TX on Saturday or Sunday after the Barrett- Jackson Mandalay Bay Auction.
At this time I can haul this as far east as Austin - further if needed.
If anyone wants to discuss transport - please call me on the phone.
Nice old car. I need more parking area.
SOLD just waiting for Jim to haul it to Texas.
Blaze was thrilled with his new Model T ...
This is is second one.
Great. I think it is a great little T. It is also great that the family is able to give a young man such a present. Hope he enjoys it and it maintains his interest in the better things of life and keeps at least one more young person off of the streets.
Hi Dick. Blaze LOVES the little truck. He named it "Leroy"! It runs nice.
We will be in touch with you next week. Best, Mike.
