Runs, drives, stops. This was originally a touring car, but in the '50s it was modified to have a roadster/runabout look. Original frame, fenders, hood, engine block, radiator. The seats on the car are 1910-1912 Cadillac Model 30 seats (needs reupholstering). The car has been modified to have a 6v starter, but the original hogshead and flywheel go with the car if you wanted to take the starter off. Starts well just on crank, runs on magneto. 4 new coils plus 4 good spares. The brass is complete but could use some work. The tires are nice, the wood in the wheels appears tight, two extra wheels go with the car. Restore it, or make a speedster out of it, or just leave it with the great brass car patina it has. Clear WI title.

There might be a few 1911 parts. Looks to have 15-16 front fenders and hood former. Itsa bitsa with possibilities.
I was taken by the reverse fitting of the firewall brackets. To me, it is an indication that the whole car was built up with whatever was needed to make it run, by someone who was not particularly fussed or well versed in model T's. That's not to say there isn't $7000 worth of 1911 parts there.

FYI also, the pictures don't tell enough, and clearly there are a lot of much later parts (including it appears the majority of the rear end). However, someone close by with enough cash to spare should go look closely. It looks like there may be a very good chance that the engine block may be a 1911 or 1912? IF so? The engine alone could be worth most of the asking price! Can't see the pan, wrong head, wrong hogshead (he says it comes with the right one?), several other wrong things, but still?
