Some pictures of my Aftermarket body model T have been posted before, but I have been asked for some.
I accidently bought the T because of an badly worded advertisement. The advertisement said the owner had a four passenger coupe. I tried to correct him and asked if it was a sedan. After he send me some photos of the car, I realized it was a rare aftermarket car. To make a long story short, I bought it before others knew what was being advertised. I tried to restore it without changing much of the original car. Running gear is 1922.
1920's Four passenger Abresch coupe?
As much as I prefer horseless carriage and brass era, that car is high on my list of absolute favorite model Ts of all time! (And has been on that list ever since I first saw a picture of it in the Vintage Ford how many years ago now?)
I wish more owners of non-speedster after-market bodied cars would drive them and show them off more.
I always get a kick out of seeing you coupe, Willie, thank you for posting it again.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
That is a very charming car. I thought it was a bit ugly the first time I saw one but this one has grown on me. I wish I could make my new coupe upholstery look like that. You are lucky to have it.
Neat car. Just a note. I notice your turn signal controller is mounted with the lever pointing up. Seems awkward. I mounted mine on the right side opposite the horn button. Puts the lever under your right hand and is easy to operate from there. JM2CW.
Great car! Thanks for posting. I recall seeing it before, but a nice refresher. Enjoy.
How comfortable is that front passenger seat on a long drive? Does it rock or is it pretty solid. Love the wheels.
Dave, that front passenger seat is small for a full size person. I would not want to sit in it for a long trip.
Gary, I find the turn signal more visible in front of me as it does not have an auto off like the newer cars have. (less likely to leave on)
Willie -- I remember seeing your car at the Centennial. It caused quite a stir, and rightfully so. It really is a neat car, and you are fortunate to have it.
Mike, I think the Centennial was the first major tour I did with it.
Like I said in my opening post, if the original owner had worded his post a little different, many others would have bought the car before I had a chance to make my offer.
I always enjoy seeing this coupe. Thanks for reposting it!!
