I was bidding on it but the seller had the listing removed as no longer available. It would have been fun
It is now on Ebay for double the money- I had emailed the seller and was told it sold for $20K- a few hours later it shows up on Ebay for more moolah. Hmmmmmm.

Now, it is in Algoma, Wisc.
The title has today's (2/28/14) date. Looks like someone is hoping for a high profit flip.
Neat car, overpriced by a lot.
I'm on EBay a lot. Have never seen a picture of the title accompanying the vehicle. Unconventional to say the least.
It took me almost 6 weeks to get the title mailed to me by the IL DMV after I filed the paperwork for my '25 touring. How did somebody get a title transferred and issued in just a few hours? It was listed as being owned by someone in Indiana shows previous title in Ohio.
Here in Alaska I have always been able to get an Alaskan title from a new purchase (along with new license plates) in just a few minutes.
does this mean I can call my brass speedster a real 1915 with a custom factory body and fenders and dupe people into buying it for lottsa money so I can then buy an authentic early model t? hmmmm
You just get a bill of sale, have it inspected by an BMV inspector, and go get the title. At least it's that easy here in Ohio. Did that three times.
At least now I can say I bid on a 1909 Model T. Of course, I did not expect my $150 bid to be the high bid.
I did win a pair of Farmall M brake bands for my $13 bid.
I see it has the genuine 1909 options of High Head , closed valve motor and the ultra rare original generator.
If you want a really good laugh, take a look at the tail light on this thing. I hope he doesn't actually find someone dumb enough to buy this fake 1909 for that price. But what do I care--no money outta my pocket.
They make a brighter light when mounted like that, your oil doesn't last as long 10-15 min. tops.
I'm glad it has the correct 1909 horn wire tube on the steering column, and the correct 1909 non-tapered springs, and the correct 1909 gold-painted demountable Hayes rims, and especially the correct 1909 plastic-insulated wiring. I see two possible outcomes here. Either it doesn't sell, or some rich sucker takes a major financial screwing. I'm guessing the former. Rich guys don't get that way by being dumb. We'll find out by tomorrow evening. Stay tuned.
Steve, seriously? I thought mounting a kerosene light upside down and ignite the wick would turn it into a Molotov cocktail?
Free shipping anywhere. Hummmmmmmmm
Not being a T expert my '10 has E & J head lamps. Which or were both correct in '09?
Good point Roger, It would make a good crowed control devise.....
If you want to pay me twenty-five thousand to thirty thousand too many dollars for one of my cars, I will gladly throw in free shipping to the lower forty-eight states. And maybe even dinner at a local steakhouse.
About the tail lamp? What is it with so many people? I think nearly half the oil side and tail lamps offered on ebad are photographed upside-down.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
"This listing has ended." No sale.
He says, a "rare 1909 "T" with an upgraded 1919 motor". I'm wondering if the "upgrade" consists of the Texas T distributor, or the pain-in-the a$$ water pump! And I don't know what that top is supposed to fit, but on THAT car, it is really ugly!
When I first saw it, reminded me of one of these Tomi(sp) toy cars of early Model T's.
The '09 Tourabout is back:
