I've been piecing together a model T shell for 20+ yrs since I found the skin and adopted it intending to resurrect it one day...I'm looking for:
- steel low cowl firewall
- dash board
- gas tank
- f/r springs
- any body mount tabs
- frame body mounts
- headlights and mounts (non brass)
- '22-3 lower cdn. windshield posts (not the early vertical posts)
- rad shell and rad (non brass)etc.etc.etc.
I'll be straight up and say I can't afford to pay much for these parts so i'll look at rough parts, this is for reassembling a rough car not a concours restoration - thanks!
Rik I have all this stuff.Sent you a pm
Thanks Jack! I've p.m.ed you back thanks for your reply....south Oregon is a long trip for me (a couple days)so I'll leave this up for now
Does anyone know what duties/taxes etc. I would have to deal with at the border on old car parts? -thanks
I forgot also:
- toe board braces
and i'm sure there is more lol
I'm just a bit west of Tacoma, WA - drop me a note as I have probably most of what is on your "wanted" list.
Hey Rik,there is a guy up in Merritt BC,names Jack Cross.
Email is firstname.lastname@example.org
You can email or phone him what you need and he may have it. He's coming down to the Coastal swap meet in Abbotsford on May 26-27.
I just talked to him last week and he had just picked up a trailer load of T parts.
Good luck with your build.
Call the border boys and ask them straight up. Tell them you have
this old hunk of junk and a Yankee offered to give you some parts
to put it together. Will there be a duty ?
I have brought old junk (most people think old rusty stuff is "junk")
across the border going both ways. Friends doing the same try to
hide the stuff and make a fuss and tell of having problems. I just
drive up with it in the back of my truck and (if asked) tell them I
helped a friend clean up some stuff in his field. They don't seem
to care beyond that.
Thanks very much everyone for the help and the replies!
Thanks Burger that's what I did when I found the body in Washington back in the '90's! lol
Check with William Bender in Seattle he posts here often. His supply of model t parts is unequaled by anyone in the northwest. If he see's this post he will reply. I might add his prices are very reasonable and well stocked.
You didn't see the amount of T parts I scrapped when I relocated last year let alone what I retained, Howard - Bill is not the only guy with T parts.
