A good friend, Lee Votrabeck from Iowa will be bringing the back half of a 1910 touring to Chickasha. It has the doors with latches and door handles.
This is "barn fresh" and is in very nice condition for having 105 birthdays.
The tool compartment behind the kick panel is also there in nice condition.
Lee is in spaces SN 14 thru 17 & SO 14 thru 17. Thank you.
looks great nice pics!
Did the back half of the 1910 Touring sell and how much? Did anyone get any pictures of it?
Did anyone see it at Chickasha?
I saw it there with Lee, do not know if it sold?
I was at the event until 10:00 on Friday, where that half body was still on the same trailer that it had arrived on, along with one of the two early frames that had accompanied it to the show. Not sure whether this means anything, but hope this information is helpful
I saw it there and asked about it. I might have a picture of it in my phone. That would take an act of congress to get off of there.
It was cut maybe half way at the sill area. It was in really pretty good shape for a barn find.
The man I spoke to said it had been found in a barn someone had bought. The original leather was there and though still was not broken. The color was a faded, washed out green that you could see the grain of the curved wood in. There was no buggy rail on it. The tool box lid was there for the area under the seat. I don't remember the seat cushion being there. They wanted 3,200.00 for it.
Hope this helps.
I don't think it sold, price was 3000.00 for the seat and both doors with latches.
that wood have been a bargain if you had needed it.sure can't build it for that.charley
The body was not sold and has returned to dry storage in Iowa City, Iowa area. The price being quoted was $3200 but there may have been some leeway, I am not sure. Kim has described it correctly and no, there is no seat bottom. All of the underseat wood is there and I am fairly certain that there is no rot and it is very solid. No buggy rail but brackets it would bolt to are. Lee can be contacted at 319-551-1583 on his cell. Mike
