This '25 Tudor was purchased new in Georgia in early 1925 and driven until 1946 when it was stored for 71 years. When the estate was disbursed I acquired the car and brought it to Texas. It was running when it arrived but I removed the engine, transmission and rear end and took all that to Ross Lilleker and had him rebuild all the mechanicals. He went through everything to make sure the car is very road worthy. It starts right up and runs great on mag. I have his detailed invoice listing all that was done. The car now has new bands, bearings, new axles and many more fixes. The original glass is still in the car however the window regulators are worn out. When the car was done I have $9,350.56 invested and would like to recover that if possible. We are in Texas about 40 miles north of Houston. I have a good Texas title in my name.

I always think of things I should have put in the original ad: I asked Ross to not clean up and paint the engine. I wanted the Georgia dirt to stay where it was when the car got here. The headlights still have the original bulbs and I did not hook up the lights. The starter was rebuilt and I put in a re-built carburetor and generator. If you are interested you can either send a PM or email: mjmays at consolidated.net. Thanks

When our kids saw this ad they asked me to take the car off the market for now. Who knows, maybe later but the family really likes the car so it may stay with us for a while. Thanks for looking.

That's GREAT, What is the condition of the wood spoke wheels,they look questionable in the photos.

The wheels are solid. This one is typical of the other 4 (including the spare)

I'd keep it like that as long as possible. Plenty of shiny black t's out there.
