I wish I had found one that complete when I started on mine. The pictures are great for reference.
Jim, thanks for guiding us to this.

Hopefully to someone who will preserve it and not turn it into a rat rod. This isn't 2007.

Freighter Jim will be dropping off the T to join Otis, Frank and Clarence in a few days. This T was bought new in 1925 (motor number makes it a March, 1925 T)and driven until 1946 then parked in the barn. Was recently started and sounds good. The car is absolutely untouched for the last 70 plus years and I promised the seller that it would stay that way. I'll only do whatever it takes to make it safe. All the original interior is in tact and the even the headliner has no holes. I'll be needing a few things like tires and tubes and will be making a list as I go through the T.

This is a picture of the original owner and his wife that bought the car in Georgia in 1925. He was born in 1881 and died in 1956. The car was stored in the barn for 10 years before he died. I'll do my best to keep it the way he left it.

What a wonderful direction to take it. I will look forward to seeing it on the forum as time goes by.
It found a great home.

John,

Congratulations and glad to hear it will be going to a great home.

Could you repost some pictures when you get down time since the ad has been pulled down. Maybe a post over on the forum would be better. I'm sure people would love to hear about it and see it.

Dan

https://youtu.be/jOrGufKJpuY Hope this works. First time I've tried to put a video on this site. Anyway, here is a short video of the first start in more than 70 years.

John,

It has been an interesting day - probably the most fortuitous one for me - your Model T is loaded on my trailer.
