I remember that car well. Mel worked on it for a long time. I've always wondered where it went. Dave

Too bad I am so broke! (I am really feeling the need for an earlier brass Ford)
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

I believe if I look back a few years in my club magazines I'd be able to find an article about it.

I keep thinking that I would like to have a early model T. I currently have a 28 model A open cab pickup.
What am I looking at when it comes to price for an original drivable brass T by years? I am probably looking at the 1914-16 years. $29,000 Is about $10,000 more than I am willing to pay.

John, sent you a PM.

Mike, if you find what mag it was featured in, pls. let me know. I'm interested in this car, but for now a guy is "ahead of me", but who knows what fate has in store for us!

Tim

A friend of mine worked on this car and knew Mel well. If anyone would like to contact him to ask about the car when Mel restored it, send me an email and I'll give you his email address.

Good luck,

Rob

John E Cox:

Generally the older the car the more desirable and fewer made, thus higher priced. There are lots of 1914 Model T's that survived, due to a long model year and decent survival rates. You can find a decent ready to use 1914 touring or torpedo runabout in the $12,000 - $20,000 range. A perfect one might be worth $25,000 or more.

Any mostly correct 1912 that is less than $30,000 and usable is a pretty decent deal. These cars were built before the assembly line and the parts are hard to find, expensive, and time consuming to restore.

John,
I just purchased a completely restored 1914 touring in SoCal for $17,500 (generally a higher priced area). Obviously not original with front to back total restoration, but all stock with new upholstery, top, paint, wheels, new BrassWorks radiator, and added Rocky Mtn brakes. Body restored by Ray Wells. Runs and drives great! Just for what it's worth. Good luck.

Brass Model T production:
1909........10660
1910........19050
1911........34858
1912........68773
1913......170211
1914......202667
1915......308162
1916......501462

This is why the prices get so much higher the further back you go.

I'm glad he has the fore-doors for it.
Too bad they are not restored and on the car like they should be.

I agree, the price is not that far off. I wish there were more pictures available.
