For sale is this project/donor Motel T. Iíve been asking some question about it on the forum and have done a few hours work on it, that is the extent of my knowledge base of this 24/25/26/27 Model T. Picked up the rolling chassis in an estate sale with some body parts and some body parts I had left over from my WWI War Wagon project.
I just donít have the garage space to take on another T at this time. I purchase this one for the tires and wheels only, the rest, I left alone after putting on some wheel rims just to keep it off the ground.
Itís a T

Photos speak for themselves, it is what it is and thatís all it is. Located in the Atlanta, GA area, but I have homes in Lakeland, FL and in Leavenworth, KS and could work something out for transfer. GA is a no title state, so sold with bill of sale only. Please PM me with any questions or if you need additional photos of a specific area or part. Iím passing it on for what I have in it. $1500 OBO. A running engine and hogshead ought to be worth at least that, I would think.
Thank you for looking and reading.
Robert wish I had room myself for it. The engine sound ok? Tim
Yes, the muffler didn't help, but no knocking or obvious issues. If it doesn't sell, I'll lug it out to KS and put it in a barn and have a good spare. Maybe part this thing out. It's got a lot of neat little things like the horn button, good steering column, batter cable bracket, brake parts, etc. I understnad the gas tank is not being reproduced anymore and that alone is worth having as a spare or replacement. I could take what's here, clean it up, put on a wooden seat and bed and have a nice little fram truck.
I'm offering it to some film studios here in Atlanta to have something in the background or a period movie or finish it off cheaply and have a driver in a movie scene.
Is that a ketchup bottle?
Hey, whatever works! Needs to be vented and it's a little too close to the exhaust manifold for my comfort level.
That explains the explosion!
Just kidding, we don't work on these all the time, so that is what came to mind. Pin hole in the opposite end kept it from collapsing. Red bottle is unleaded and yellow bottle is leaded. Just kidding again.
A 24,25,26,27 ... that sounds like a Johnny Cash song "One Piece At A Time"
sent you email. Bill
Bill, sent you a reply. If it's still available when I head out to KS, we'll talk.
I'm getting flooded with emails about specific parts and I MAY go that route, but I'd rather not get into the dismantling business on my driveway.
The few parts I am selling on the classifieds were loose parts that came with this project.
Here's the vieo of the engine running. Muffler is bad, gas from ketchup bottle, no choke or carb adjusting, just plain old running...
After see what someone else is asking for a running engine alone, this running engine and complete rolling chassis has got to be worth at least a fair offer. Maybe?
I can always put a low reserve on it and off to you know where.
For those of you who have PM'd me for parts from this, the jury is still out.
SOLD. Thanks, John. And good luck with your first T. Welcome to the affliction!
