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.

Doesn't matter. Looks and sounds like a decent car for the money.

Someone will enter the hobby and will likely be very happy.
