Is this Model T located in Havertown, PA ?
If so - I am headed to Sandy Lake, PA from Jefferson, MD to pick up in about a week - then to Burkburnett, TX to drop off.
If someone is thinking about buying this who lives along the way to Texas or further west - at this time I have room to haul it at this time ..
Are there any pictures that you can post?
Looks more like a '12 to me by description and engine #.
Give him a call .....
Would even a '12 have had a red body? I thought the last year for that was 1911. Or was it 1910?
Red was the most popular color in the early days of the antique car hobby. Gotta admit, they look nice. When I got into the hobby, a long time ago, I was told that "09 and '10 were supposed to be red, '11 and '12 were close enough that it was okay to paint them that way.
However, we know a lot more today about the real history of our cars than was known then. My understanding now, is that only about the first half of 1909 were actually painted red by the Ford factory. And only touring cars (runabouts were gray). And not all of the touring cars were red either.
But, I am not positive about all that. Maybe Royce (or Trent B, or?) could chime in here and clarify for us (or me).
