check out this Model T with a painted shell.. see if this dealer knows anything about this T
I like it ! Lose the waterpump and explosion whistle and send the body to Ray Wells for the rear seat and doors. That goofy looking "cowl" I think was a period accessory. I'd sell it at Chickasha and use the money to buy the correct rear end halves. Then buy one of Regan's firewalls.
Somebody needs to speak up for the underdog, but I like that goofy accessory cowl ! In fact when I first saw that car advertised a few weeks ago, I wished I could buy the car just to get the cowl. I think it's pretty neat.
If it starts and runs down the road...enjoy it!!!! cars are meant to be driven not displayed like a coffee table in your living room.
There is a touring around with one of those cowl things that used to come up to Maine for our fall tour - I did not like it at first, but it grows on you after a while...
George - If the cowl is actually a "period accessory" I think I'd leave it. And why not leave it a touring "cutoff" as it seems to have a very nicely built pick-up box! It would be fun to have just "as is" if you also had a similar factory stock touring to compare it to. Fun to explain to folks how and why so many tourings were "cut off",.....not just to make a handy 'farmer's friend", but often done to qualify as a farm machine so as to qualify for more suitable gasoline rationing" during WW2. Just my thoughts,......harold
This T is in northern Minnesota. That is a MN pioneer plate on the T. 507 is a northern Mn area code.
Okay so what type of dollar figure is this car worth? The location is 180 miles from me; south of Minneapolis.
Darel you got it backwards! 507 is southern mn, 218 is northern mn. the car is in mankato.
Thank you, I should have known.
The dealer is in Mankato and I have been to this place and seen some nice cars there. Don't know how much they know about a model T.
The car is listed on their internet web site for $11,900
Sold for $6,600. That seems like a pretty fair price, considering that it's got so many correct features.
"Bidding has ended". May or may not have sold. I will be curious to see if it gets re-listed.
No, it didn't sell. "Reserve not met."
Looks like the final bid was about half of the $12,900?
I think $6,600 is about what it is worth.
I don't see "reserve not met" on the listing, just that bidding has ended. Did eBay get sneaky on this?
Click on the "see original listing" just below the Title. It will go to the full listing description. It shows the "reserve not met".
Okay, got it. Thank you eBay, for the trickery!
