Thought this was sold but the deal fell through so here we are again. Helping an old friend who unfortunately has severe dementia, liquidate most of his Model T Fords and parts. To start with, I’m sure you’ll find this hard to believe but this 1921 coupe that we are selling has well over $40,000.00 into the restoration. He got sick before it was completed, and to top it all off the restoration shop that was doing all the work folded, filing bankruptcy. It needs assembly of the body components and upholstery, glass, Lots of nice work has been done to this car. All body work and paint that has been completed is excellent, and includes the body, turtle deck, fenders, aprons, radiator shell, hood sills, head lights and firewall, new Rootleib hood and running boards in primer, Engine, transmission and Ruckstell rear end has been rebuilt but there’s still a few things needing paint finish work. No upholstery work or top has been done, and of course “Some assembly required” Accessory’s include the Ruckstell, small drum outside brakes, Hassler shocks, original correct era front and rear bumpers, and Ricardo cylinder head. The owner chose the colors, they're era colors but incorrect for a Ford. Also one of the pictures shows a corner moulding on the body that needs to be re attached.The wire wheels that you see in some of the pictures are no longer on the car and are not part of this package, it has 30 X 3 1/2 demountable wood wheels. I’ll be glad to answer any questions that I can. Since the owner has dementia I can’t get many answers from him. $6,700.00. This is a must sell so don’t hesitate to make an offer.
What is the condition of the wheels and rims? Tires? any paint left to finish the hood? Condition of the radiator? Old interior available for patterns? Thanks, Tom
Wheels are original cond. good wood need paint, rims are good, no tires. Radiator is good, doubt if there's any upholstery patterns or extra paint.
Is the interior complete? ie: Are the moldings, seat components, windshield, window parts etc all there?
Looks like it could make a very nice car.
boy, what a sad story
Someone should give it happy ending. Buy, and finish this car, as nicely as it was being done. Then drive it, and enjoy it. And remember the name of the fellow that began the restoration.
You couldn't duplicate what is there half as nice for twice the cost. A good deal to boot.
Thanks everyone, it's sold, going to a good home. Check is in the mail.
Congratulations to the lucky new owner. What a great deal! Hopefully we will se pictures of the completed car soon?
