O.k., I've been posting for a 1911 Model T Touring in original or old restoration condition for a LONG time now and I'm starting to get discouraged. I haven't had a lead since Christmas, so I'm posting now for ANY 1911 Touring that may be out there. As long as it has it's original engine, I'm interested. I am a serious buyer, so if anyone knows of an old fella who has one tucked away and hasn't driven it in a while, please let me know! My cell is 586-651-5760. And thanks for you patience with all my "bumps"!
Don't be discouraged!
I pursued this old girl for years before she became available. When the (then) current owner eventually lost his storage space he decided to part with the car among several others. I felt very fortunate to have received the call once his decision had been made.
Interestingly, his name was I J Elliott, the Ford dealer in Porterville, California. He had owned the car since 1939 when he bought it from the original owner for $50. The car was used occasionally for the annual Veterans Day parade. Second image posted here is probably from 1942; I J is the driver.
