Whoops! I missed the other post on this. Sorry for the senior moment.
It's the same car but is being sold by someone else.
OK so did this guy buy it from the last guy, or is this the actual owner?
The extra pics show it does have a later engine with starter and generator. Looks to be 1919-22 or so.
It seems to be cursed by bad photography. I realize it's in Wisconsin, but shooting a black car against a white background doesn't do it any favors.
Looks like a vacuum cleaner salesman in Wisc. is selling it this time.
Look at the title- dated 2/28 so apparently the guy bought it and is flipping it immediately.
The 1909 designation gets a lot of people excited.
I hope whoever wants to buy it will check it out closely and do some research.
It would be a fun hobby car to drive if someone wanted it for that purpose.
We're very fortunate, of the roughly 8,000 1909 Model T (Oct 1, 1908 - Aug 1, 1909) built, about 10,000 survive.
I know, old joke..............still cracks me up.
But...it leads me to the question - How can the VIN be 5 digits if only 8,000 1909s were built?
Therein lies the problem........
It's just creative accounting (early government mandated regulations for the auto industry).
