I never thought rodders were that careless. Surely he meant a 1909 Model T? But his wheels - and a lot more - are not right.
That car lead the pack at the 100th Anniversary of the Corona Road Races... See 2 minutes 46 seconds into the video for a quick view. It looked quite out of place next to the real cars. Just my opinion.
Seems if he drove it at normal car cruising speeds...wouldn't he just blow the top right off? In any case....those wheels are terrible, good looking car otherwise, at least it's not chopped!
It has good potential, and hasn't been completely ruined.
The damage could be repaired.
: ^ )
The body is not 1919 and the suspension looks awful. It says a good parade car. I would be ashamed to be seen in public in that car! I'd be much more proud in one that looked like a Model T even if it was a rustbucket.
I wonder what engine is in it?
Probably didn't use an open Valve Block!
I just want to see the surprised look on his face when he hits 70 and forgot he has the top up
Who would drive that? Seriously?
Looks fixable to me. Would be really nice if someone drops that body on a T frame and running gear. I'm glad I've never seen a car like that out in public anywhere - I might vomit. At least being online my mind still wants to convince itself that this thing isn't real, just a weird photoshop job.
Too many zeros.
I agree with Seth, and Richard. What a ridiculous thing to do to a nice model T. And with that, waaaay too expensive. I'd give him 8 grand for it, so then I can put another ton of money in it making it correct again.
Relax, it's not a real 1909. There were several 1909 bodies made about 35 or 40 years ago. There were at least two that a Long Beach street rod builder made into red street rods with Pinto engines and Jag rear ends. He sold the first one, which is possibly this one, and he still has the second one. In fact I just saw his last week in front of his shop. Other than lights and some other accessories like the carbide generator, there aren't any real 1909 parts there.
If they used real 09 lights and horn, Don't those parts alone cost the asking price?
That looks like a Pinto engine to me
I know that retired US Navy Seals confront people who claim to be war veterans or ex-members of the special forces.
Perhaps the MTFCA can put together a similar website or team to take on rodders or BS ebay sellers???
Not to sway to far off topic, I watched that video and my feeling is if that 87 year old WW2 vet, Kora area and any of the Vietnam area Vets want to say they are the kings of anywhere then let them. There war was unthinkable. I think that guy went just a bit too far on some of them. Im just one tired old Army vet.
that looks exactly like the model T Henry would envision after drinking a bottle of Jim Beam
I don't mean to sound rude, but it looks like a golf cart to me.
Chuck, you are right. The low slung body and the too high top sure make it look like a golf buggy. I think the fat tires add to the impression.
