Appears to be in good condition. Someone has tacked on a pair of 26-27 oil pan supports as seen in pictures, May need to be straightened. More pictures upon request. $1100 plus shipping.

Hi Curt, what do you mean be 7 rivets? and where. Thanks Jim
James 7 rivet is referencing how many rivets are holding on the pan ears that attach to the frame. The early pans have 7 rivets per ear, and then this was changed to three rivets later on. Judging from the pictures this pan seems to be a clone.
Mike; When did they change from 7 rivets to 3 rivets? Thanks Craig
Craig, 1912 was about the last year for the 7 rivet pans depending on the month. Mark Herdman did an excellent job on writing some articles on the pan changes. You can search for it through the forum
Here are the articles:
Jim. The 7 rivets are the number of rivets that attach each of the arms on the pan body. The above referenced threads are a very good guide on the differences in the early oil pans. I have 18 pics of most all aspects of this pan. If you or anyone else would like to see them send me a message and I would be happy to send them.
Hi Mike, I am wondering why you think its a clone. It looks like the real thing from what I see. Of course I can't see much of the arms, but the nose and end pieces look right.
Richard, the only reason why I said that is the nose piece. From the close up pictures of the nose piece it looks like material was added/built up to make it come around the hole. The material looks rough as if someone was grinding on it, of course this could have been from a repair, I'm not sure. From looking at my 12 pan the front piece casting is one piece that lays on top of the hole. Since this is not mine I can't speak for Curt, just what I saw. I in no way wish to cast doubt on another members parts, just an observation.
Ford was none too neat when it came to brazing the nose and arms on.
