Wait a min. there are at least a thousand dollars (E_bay value) left on that car!!
That's in better shape than a lot of the stuff some guy's brag about draggin' home here! It looks like it's still being scavanged for parts too.
Where is it? I aint skeered!:>)
Alot of good parts there.
The photo was taken at the Painted Desert.
Ran when parked? I don't think so. Looking at the empty vistas all around, I'd have kept that running as long as I could! Nobody's had those fenders 'cos it's a long walk home. Any ideas where it is?
What a timesaver! It's already been sandblasted!
It just needs a light tune up and Wallah! Drive it home.
Yeah most of that obvious sheet metal damage should buff right out.
I wonder what year that block is.
Take the guy out, add oil paint and presto...
Would love to come across that here in Ecuador!!
Somebody is good with photoshop.
Wonder who else we could put in there instead of that person?
If it's in the Painted Desert...then does that make it property of the National Park? I ran across a fender that looked better than some I've seen at swap meets, that a tree grew around in Capitol Reef National Park in Utah...I really wanted that fender at the time, but no amount of yanking or pushing on the tree would make it come loose and I don't think I could've gotten away with chopping the tree down to rescue the fender...I don't think you could declare a rescue mission here either and take any of these parts...it would be considered part of the landscape and probably has already be inventoried by the National Park Service.
Sans inflation it's worth more now than new.
It's a fake....no bullet holes.
Almost perfectly preserved, Repaired and drive it, no paint required, The colour is perfect just the way it is.
Wheres the bullet holes?
Looks better than what I started with for my first T about 25 years ago. If its in the Painted Desert and is on National Park property. It is a federal crime to remove anything or deface it in anyway. It is considered "poaching" or covered under the "antiqueties laws" I got caught with a metal detector on National park land in Arkansas years ago. I had asked permission from a land owner that adjorned Arkansas Post National Park to look on his property. It is a civil war park near the Mississippi River. I was using the detector when a Park Ranger came by and asked what I was doing . I said looking for relics on the farmers property. He informed me I was on Park property. In that area it was thick grown up briers and thickets. I had some how got about 5 feet onto the park land. Its boundery line was blazed on the trees and I was accidently on the wrong side of the marks. I was arrested, hauled to jail, my truck and metal detector impounded, had to post bond, then on court date I had to subponea the poor land owner to come to court and tell the judge that I had asked permission to look his land. Since I was only 5 feet on park land the charges were dropped, and I got my truck and metal detector back. I also received a very stern warning to never show up in his court again. They take it very seriously and are somewhat anal about it. So if on federal land and you find something neat. I would suggest to take pictures and nothing else.
The bullet holes are in the engine. Owner shot it AFTER it died. Tossed the seat cushion on his back and hiked out. :-)
Judging by the windshield, low radiator shell and rest of it, It is a 1923. Pretty nice shape: I hauled lots of stuff in worse shape home years ago.
coil boxlooks like it had a switch on it which is too early for the rest of the remains. Baloon tire rim wasn't available till 25. Looks like maybe a hodge podge
Seriously, there's some really nice pieces of metal there, Don.
That's the lowest low rider I've ever seen.
Looks like someone has already made off with the body panels, but I wonder why they left the front door?
A few years ago there was 1911 Torpedo chassis on ebay that had been found in the mountains, but I don't know how many years ago it had been found. I figure that all of the remains of brass era Model Ts have already been carted off from government land, by now. Any later stuff, like the one pictured, is not worth the chance of being caught. Donnie is right, the government has no since of humor these days. There was a time when the government wouldn't have cared. They didn't want any junk on public land. Now, it's usually best to leave the junk alone.
LOL Dennis - seat cushion on his back . . . that's good.
After he got back he didn't have saddle sores on his back--he looked like a pincushion from the springs. :-) I know the feeling--I carried
lots of parts out miles when I was younger.
