I have no connection to this, but there's a really nice looking red 1911 Touring being auctioned on June 6 in Newark, Ohio for those of you who are close to Columbus. I will try to attach the link, which is through Hemmings. If it was more unrestored, original paint and closer, I'd be all over it but I'm not a red fan.
I called the auction house and they told me the owner is out of town until tomorrow, so he couldn't tell me the specifics on the car other than it was restored sometime back. He said to call on Thursday and he would have more detailed information on the car. I was just curious if it had the original motor and rear axle. Hard to tell much from two small photos.
I just love the look of a wooden body sans front doors.
Me too! My favorite T of all time is the 1911 Touring, then the 1914. I'm almost finished putting together my '14 I picked up last year, and someday I'd love to add a 1911. I'd love to find one that's barn fresh (yeah, right) or has an older restoration with original interior. There was one on ebay a few months ago that I almost bid on, but it went for 22.5 K.
Its my car, Guys---A 35 year old restoration and pretty much all correct. It has a later engine--not an open valve. I`ve put an $18K reserve which is low for a car of this quality. A real deal if you like the early wood bodied Fords. Good luck if you are bidding....Paul
I assume you mean a later in 1911 engine rather than a later year engine. Is that correct?
