*whistle* Poor thing. Someone might could save it but $34.5k?!? LOL

Plus it's billed as a 1919? It looks more like mostly early brass. I don't know all about the earlier cars but that looks like a very early radiator, early headlamps, early everything except the drive train.

To each their own, but that picture makes me think of a lot things I could do with $34,900...

I didn't realize they put that type of wire wheels on a 1919 T! And a Jaguar suspension? Wow!
Would make Henry Ford turn over in his grave! LOL

Factory optional wire wheels with IRS with inboard disc brakes very innovative for 1919.

Built for a back seat horn blower.

I mean someone correct me if I'm wrong but if you dropped that body with all the trimmings on an early drivetrain you'd instantly have a very lovely 1910-12ish touring car.

$35k for a parts car -- to use just the body? What happens to the factory options?

Too bad, it has a waterpump.

Man I hope that wasn't a good original that was mutilated to this. Maybe it was a put together from a pile of parts. To each his own but if I wanted a street rod I'd build something from the mid 30's to the 50's.

Model T ????????? Really.

They did capture a lot of the charm of a 1909 Tourabout. Could have been worse. Still a shame.

Wow, that really is mostly a T, isn't it? If not, it's an exceptionally detailed (albeit ugly) hot rod.

I only want it if the lights are gas and the crank is usable.

Why do they do this.

I feel so sorry that someone would take a classic car and destroy it! This is a 1909 - 1911 Tourabout body with a gutted drive train. I have the original which has not been tampered with. In fact, I have restored the carburetor and ignition system back to factory new condition. What were they thinking?

Makes you kinda sick inside...doesn't it?

I bet someone buys it and thinks its wonderful. I bet that was what he was thinking about. Ebay would get him a better audience. Its some hotrodder's dream!

Where's Henry when we need him. I want to see him walk around it, rip each door off (okay it has no doors), bash in the windshield and stomp the roof in. Just to send a message.

Just plain sacriligious! :-(
Hyep yep yep yep

Sadly, It will probably sell for more than a correctly restored original.

That car was for sale in Arizona about ten years ago on eBay. It appears to be made from a real 1910 Tourabout.

Looks like one of those new taxi cars they have been pushing for in New York to replace the horse.

Darel, You sure know how to push everyone's buttons! :-)

This car was discussed about a year ago when the Uncle Bud's museum closed & sold off all of the collection. There was a 1916 Touring and some other neat stuff in there. Our local Pantera club got a tour just before it was shut down to widen the 91 freeway in Corona.
Don't worry, no actual Model Ts were harmed in the construction of this replica Hot Rod :-)
