Typical 1915 touring except for the accessory winter top. No rivet behind the front seat on the body, with wood doors below each seat in the wood seat frames.

Royce: I had a friend with a unrestored 15 with a California top that needed some money and wanted to sell it to me for 1,800.00. I really kick my self for not buying it. It would have been a fantastic car for winter use.

Caught in a blizzard in Riverside Wyoming.

That is a great photograph!

Why would you buy that accessory? Do the windows come out in the Summer? Does the top go down like the original touring roof.

It is WAY cool though I must say.

Tom,

Maybe you missed the other pictures? The windows fold up into the top when not needed. If you encounter rain they can be folded quickly into place.

I still don't see any bids. $16,000.00 seems a little high to me but it is a scarce car. I am sure that you would have better visibility than I do with side curtains on my 16.

The old saying - "the price goes up if the top goes down" - this top will not go down...

The same discussion is going on over at the Ford
barn - here was what I thought:

It is an interesting top, but not one picture of the mechanicals, the interior is tattered, and you can't tell the condition of the bodywork/paint due to the seller not washing the car off.

Add this to a positive rating of 4 (all as a buyer) and I would not risk a bid either. It also seems to be more of a $10,000 car maybe 12,500 but not 16k without it running.

Just speculation, but with 207 watchers I don't think I'm alone in those thoughts.

It would be a neat top to look at on somebody else's car, but I wouldn't want it on my own.

Uhh? I was always told not to pull a "T" by the front axle because you could pull the "wishbone" right of the oil pan. I always pull mine by the frame via a couple of hooks I had made for that purpose. Looking at the car being put on the wrecker it looks to me like he has it hooked near the spindles. Am I wrong going to the trouble of hooking to the frame?

Whoever ends up the car should obtain this brochure (I'm too lazy to download the images and post them):

Also - there's some good information out there - for example:

I've had that on my watch list.
I wonder why nobody has jumped on it........apparently there haven't been any offers either.
Even if one could find another accessory like that I wonder what it would cost to get it?

I saw a top like that sell for 3500 a few years back.

I get that the windows go up, but can you still have a touring car? If not why not(back in the day)just buy a hard top in the first place.

It is a curiosity for today to say the least

I hope every one feels the same way, maybe it will get down to the price that I can afford. I would really like to have it.

I tried to bid on it but could not figure how to do it. It does not look like it sold. I used to bid and sell on Ebay all the time but its a lot more complicated now. Does anyone know who the owner is I would like to contact him.

Dave, I sent the seller an Ebay contact message asking him to contact you if the car is still available.

Mark Strange: Thanks, I think we are so far apart that I don't have much chance.

That top has to be one of the most interesting accessories I've ever seen!
