I do know that he only has the best over the top restorations in his collection. It will sell for a fortune.

Over-the-top restoration + earliest known Model T + Barrett-Jackson venue = MEGABUCKS!

What's up with the model year? You'd think that these guy's knew better.

I believe that was one of the cars from the John Woodhead collection on sept 18th 2004 the 1908 sold for 95K the 1903 130K and 1909 T racer 45K plus there was a 10% buyers premium. I was there and bid on the 08 and stopped just shy of it selling If I would of kept going I would not of had a chance against Mr. Pratte. It will be interesting to see what they go for.

Not to be critical about the car, but shouldn't both levers be brass plated? And shouldn't the spark plug connections come out of the back of the coilbox? I that this box was for NRS use only.
And didn't the early 2 lever cars have side lamps really tall with three chimney tiers ?

Maybe the restoration is "over the top" but I question the accuracy. It makes me wonder how much of this car is was built in 1908 and how much of it is reproduction.

Does anyone know the history of #90?
In this thread there was a rumour about a repro block: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/179374/228833.html?1314507009

Here are the photos. Apart from the things Keith mentioned, it also has a later hood and should have the rear door handles mounted lower on the door.

I really like the brass trim on the edge of the running board. That looks very nice. Also like the speedo - I think the sweeping needle style is my favorite.

What about the 'No 2' car that Don Hess sold to Robin Brock in Scotland? How does that compare for authenticity? Which is really earlier?

Maybe this one was built/restored during the 80's while the "#2" car was built during the 90's, so this one is earlier ;)

(regarding percentage of early parts in either, I have no idea..)

Before I spent a load of money on a 2 lever T, I'd spend some time researching the car. There are a lot of cars with repo blocks, and other components out there. As with any car at auction, it's buyer beware.

Those T's are part of the Ron Pratte collection that will be auctioned off at Barrett-Jackson tomorrow (1-23-15). His entire collection (estimates between 50-100 million worth) is being sold.

Looks like several of Ron Pratte's early Fords came from the John Woodhead collection in MN.

Sold for 110000 would still love to know the history of the car. Also hope it gets some miles under it!
