This listing is for a 1923 Ford Model T Runabout located in Houston (Kingwood), Texas. Here are some particulars about the car:
The engine number is 6577322, which implies that this is an early 1923 car.
I have a clear Texas title that is in my name.
When I acquired the vehicle, I replaced all five tires with brand new Wards Riversides. The demountable spare with its tire is not shown in the photos.
I have not restored the car, but have enjoyed driving it around the neighborhood as-is. The car runs and steers well. The brake bands were recently changed to Kevlar. The car leaks oil. I have also replaced the front spindles. The lights and horn work fine. The radiator is older but functioning in the Texas heat. No water pump.
Speedometer works. Odometer works.
The paint work, as seen in the photos, is quite old and showing lots of aging (some call it patina...).
The upholstery is serviceable and the top is in good shape.
The interior door panels are very worn. The passenger door shuts, but is difficult to latch. When closed, door is not flush with body.
The battery is 8 volt. Runs on magneto. Starts on battery.
It is time to let someone else enjoy the little car we nicknamed June. I have attached several photos taken today. There is also a link to a YouTube video that shows my son and I driving the car today.
Priced at $6,500. Buyer must arrange for shipping.
Thanks for your interest. Serious inquiries only. Please PM with interest.

This is not a 23- it has a high cowl.
It runs, it drives, it stops. Good price. You should have no trouble selling it. thanks for the ride !
Doesn't matter. Looks and sounds like a decent car for the money.
Someone will enter the hobby and will likely be very happy.
June of 1923, Henry changed to the High Cowl, Radiator and Hood while still producing 1923 models.
