None of my fleet have doors, but this was about the neatest accessory I have seen in a long time and I had to snap it up. An emergency gas tank designed to fit in the door panel of a T. Absolutely NOS - incredible condition. The greatest thing about this tank is the original instruction label glued to one side - amazing that it survived 90+ years:

My dad had one of those years ago - it was still installed in the door. It was with a group of very nice parts from a Model T touring that had been dismantled early on and then kept in good storage that we picked up in Pelican Rapids, MN.

Yours is the third one I have seen but the first one outside of Minnesota. Note that it was made in Minneapolis.

Ron, I had it in my watching, but with Chickasha coming up I opted to not try for it, and save my money. or we could have got into a bidding war. :-) :-) glad you got it ... nice piece....

I have never seen one. But then I don't live near Minnesota.
Thank you for sharing!

Donnie - funny thing, I used the fact that, sadly, I am NOT going to Chickasha to justify trying for it! I should get your EBAY bidding name via PM to avoid any bidding wars with you in the future. :-)
