I'm wondering how much my 1926 model t is worth. I know it depends on the condition but I'm wondering about a ballpark value. It has been restored inside and out. The only problem is we haven't been able to start it lately. I admit that I have no understanding of how it works but it has not been able to start recently. So I'm sure that makes a difference to the value but before that we had no problems w/ it.
Mostly depends on body style and mechanical condition. There is the Rose City (Portland) Model T Club that most likely would have a member or two that might assist you in checking your T out and perhaps troubleshoot your starting issues.
Or describe the body style, condition of body, tires, wheels, paint, upholstery, top, and engine, transmission, rear axle and steering, fuel system, battery and wiring, plus any factory accessories.
All will matter on value.
The Willamette chapter will be a lot closer;

I will try and find Don Blane's number, he is just south of Salem. He might be able to help or know someone.
I will look in the next couple of days.
I sent you a PM with his contact info. If you don't get it, check your spam file.
Cathy, here is a ballpark answer to your question as to the value for a nice, properly restored 1926 Model T in drivable condition. I'd say $8,000.00 to $12,000.00 depending on a combination of condition and body style. More if it is a prize winning show car and less if it is an incorrect and lousy restoration.
In 2011, my 1926 coupe was appraised at $12,000.00 for insurance purposes. When I was 16, I bought it in 1970 for $600.00 and spent two years and a small fortune in money and time restoring it. I re-restored in 2010, correcting all the mistakes I made in 1970-'72. Here are 2 photos to give you an idea of what is considered nice, properly restored condition. Jim Patrick
While you are at it please appraise my '26 touring in my profile pick;)
"Priceless" is the best valuation.
Condition condition condition. This 1926 model T Touring I sold went for 5400 with a new top but look at all the defects I listed.
