I need to make space so I'm selling this T project. I was driving it around up until a couple of weeks ago. I installed a rebuilt starter that seems to have a short.
The T is a pieced together 1915 with a 15-21 body, complete with the correct door latches, cowl, coil box, fenders, mud aprons, hood, and radiator. It has a new wood kit and the sheet metal is very restorable. The mud aprons, and front fenders, and hood are in almost perfect condition. The back body panel has been replaced.
The frame is a 1919, alike to the early frame except it has a battery carrier. The front end is a correct 1915, and the rear end is a large drum ruckstel.
The wheels are 30 x 3 1/2 round fellow wheels, and they are in really nice shape. Wards riverside tires.
The motor was pulled apart and refurbished. The bearings look good, have plenty of shims left, and a new third main cap installed. The cylinders are stock and were honed and re-ringed. It has a nice stock crank and camshaft. The head is a Z head, producing high compression.
It comes with an older re-cored brass radiator. And it also comes with a perfex honey comb accessory radiator that I was playing around with.
The transmission has good drums, and a new field coil installed and properly gaped. I was going to charge the magnets in the car.
It has a new alternator, and I'm working in putting in a new 12V starter.
The coil box is a rebuilt 1915 with rebuilt later style coils. It comes with a set of brass top coil cores for rebuilding.
It has new floor boards, new sill boards, new tack strips, and new top bows. The top sockets are 1915 and in good condition.
It comes with a new set of seat springs.
The gas tank is new, the fuel lines are new, and the Carburetor is a Stan Howe stromberg OF.
I put an early accessory brass windshield on it because I like the way they look.
This car was in the "assemble parts stage" it needs some fit and finish work, some minor adjustments here and there, and it should be a fun car to own. It's got a lot of brass!
$9500 local pick up
Call Daniel 831-278-2742
I will try and get more and better pictures up. It will come with some extra parts. I've got some new bands for it, the small drums for the rear wheels if needed, and some other odds and ends.
The pictures showing a bolt getting backed out of the generator plate is before the alternator was installed.
Are there less parts with the car after the price reduction? I do not see the spotlight in the new picture.
I still have the spot light.
It has new emergency brake drums, new brake linings, new brake rods, and an uninstalled accessory brake equalizer.
The last photo is actually the oldest photo. $8500
I have one straight right rear fender.
If I don't get a new starter in it before it sells I can show the buyer a video of it running.
I got a starter installed. It should be running soon. It has new floorboards, a new floor mat, brass pedal trim, rents spark plugs Macbeth headlight lenses...
Very nice project for the price. If you are leaving in the EAST I will buy it. Shipping will kill us. Good luck Dan and really hope it will find a good home.
I took the horn, spotlight, and windshield off.
$6000. That's a steal
At this rate only 8 more days and If its got a title, and the windshield, spotlight & horn get put back on it....... I probably buy her !!
I've still got the horn and the windshield in my shop, but someone bought the spotlight.
Somebody buy this car. I'm getting tired of being tempted. Ugh if only it was on the east coast.
its in California? do you have a title? thanks
In California, bill of sale no title
$5000 bottom dollar. It just needs a starter
I think Daniel is in Santa Cruz
I am in Phoenix for a few days - no big hurry to leave
I am dropping off in Salinas, CA which is close by
At this time I am available for enclosed transport
Dan, I look for projects all the time. This is one off the great value projects that if seen in the last 6 months. I love this project, but Iíve 2 in front and the wife would question my sanity. T guys, I donít know Dan, but what the fxxx. The parts and pieces alone?
I can't believe this car hasn't sold
Would trade for four ounces of gold bullion coins, maybe you bought when the market was low. Or possibly an early motorcycle project.
Dan, sold the Norton for 2 car projects. Iíve no room, but this one is a steal, if even to piece out.
Top. I will include the brass windshield at this price. I will not lower the price anymore.
Dropping off close by in Salinas today.
Headed north to Bandon, Oregon to pick up.
Still time for someone in Northern California or Southern Oregon to buy this if they need it hauled .....
I put a new, rebuilt starter in it. With a new or charged battery she should be running like a sewing machine.
I can't believe it its not sold yet... Come on gentlemen, it is the best opportunity I saw for the last 2 years. FJ are you coming near Champlain NY perhaps?
Excellent, Deal of the year!
Dan - What kind of spark plugs are those?
They look like some after market plugs I have seen that light up every time the plug fires, so its easy to tell which of the buzzer coils are working,or not working as may be the case.
