Somebody did a really, REALLY nice job restoring this car. Not a dent or ripple anywhere on it.

Good pictures too. The only negative would be the dried polish around the rivet heads :-)

That is nice. Ready to enjoy immediately.

"All correct" with a starter and 12V system?

No thanks.

Really nice. The starter and battery are a handy thing to have if you ever stall in the middle of an intersection.

Only obvious incorrect part I see is the 1919 or later coil box with a proper looking 1915 - 16 lid. The car has a very expensive paint job and nice upholstery and top, You would be hard pressed to restore one this nice for less than $20,000 in labor if someone gave you a complete running 1916 to start with.

Too bad it has brass step plates on it. Also the headlight plugs should be the angle type. Nice car though.

If you went by the Sept 1921 parts catalog, even my 21 should have the angled plugs! :-) That is a very nice 16.

And the poor guy just bought it and already has to sell it because he's got too much! That's the saddest thing I think I've ever heard. But I guess if he's able to sell this, he'll have enough money to buy something else he might not need. Boy life can really be rough for some of us.

Nobody's mentioned the wrong headlight rims. I'm not a fan of the "improvements", but it's still a nice car. If somebody wanted to give it to me, I wouldn't turn it down.

A beautiful car notwithstanding the "improvements" but too shiny for a guy like me without a real garage.

I bought my '30 Model A from this guy, he's from New York State, can't remember the town. Seems like an upstanding guy, have had lots of enjoyment out of the "A" after a few minor adjustments, the worst being a new radiator, but that seems to go part and parcel with any car over 70 years old as far as I'm concerned. Spoiler alert, he's looking to get around $22K for it.

And as a comparison of car/price, here's my '15 that I paid $20K and just had the engine rebuilt!
