What's up with this?
Looks like he had a 27 t title
Yep, it was either that or one of those 1908 Dr's Coupe titles.
Looks like somebody had a dream - a really bad one. At least very few if any real Model T parts were damaged in the construction. The description says it has a T frame boxed from front to rear. I can't imagine anyone, even the people that built this, would use anything a light as a T frame, boxed or not, to support that car. Modern suspension and brakes and a Chevy 350 all require something decent for a frame. Of course, maybe they really are that foolish.
At last count there were 11 bids so somebody out there wants it.
7 Bidders! But a LOT of work to do to finish it.
A '27 title based on what? It's an assembled vehicle and would a real hassle getting it registered in most states.
That is what is making it hard to get a real antique titled, to many street rodders running antique tags on what you might as well say is a new car. KGB
Ya, Keith, you said it well.
This is a pet peeve of mine. You can just imagine the headline: "Model T Ford traveling at a high rate of speed causes accident..... And this gives those of us who are responsible Model T'ers a bad name.
This kind of car is anything but a Model T, and should never be titled as one.
Just my opinion.....
But guys, it's "bad ass".
Yep, that's about it.
Best regards. BE
"Bad ass", hmmmm, sometimes chilli, with boiled eggs and cheap beer can give a guy a...
Am I the only one who thinks this car looks like it would be used for, umm... compensating for something?
Tim, I think a lot of us recognized it. You're the only one to say anything.
After cancer if it can compensate for something i'm going to bid! Bud in Wheeler,Mi.
Go for it Bud.
As long as no real Model T parts were ruined, I guess it's OK. But the headrest looks pretty uncomfortable.
Kieth(s), in addition to "Historic Vehicle" plates, Missouri also has a plate category called "Street Rod." The problem is that the people with street rods try for the historic vehicle plates anyway to get out of the inspection and the Dept. of Revenue people often aren't aware of the difference.
What makes a 27 T? Imagination I guess.
Dick -- Arkansas has Street Rod plates too. An Antique tag costs $7 forever. A Street Rod tag costs $50 per year. I don't think it takes a rocket scientist to figure out why lots of street rods here are running Antique plates. Add to that equation that many DMV clerks don't know $&!t from Shinola and it's easy to get the picture.
Maybe they don't use streetrod tags because they are hotrods. As in made from older parts and might break down, Just like when you drive an antique.
It looks like an almost original T to me!
Except for the motor, wheels, tires, brakes, transmission, rear end, suspension, seats, hood, body, and thing on the rear that is used to dry your beach towel while driving home.
