Is this the definition of an optimist?
Vehicle title "Rebuilt, Rebuildable & Reconstructed" might make it hard to register in another state. "All original" Complete with water pump and motorcycle horn! Too bad he has his starting bid so high He might find out how much someone is willing to pay for it if he had started the bidding at about 6K he would still have the reserve to keep it from going if he didn't get his price.
So are the front spring perches for the above the axle wishbone? Scott
Yes those are the earlier style spring perches for an above the axle wish bone. But it has the below the axle wishbone. It also does have the correct 1926-27 spindles.
Above notice how the cotter pin in the bolt of the Crank Case front bearing and spring clip does not touch the nut. My initial guess is he used the 1926-27 truck part rather than the car part.
Also that the front cross member is bolted in rather than riveted. That is ok safety wise as long as the bolts are tight and good quality.

The optimist believes we are living in the best of all possible worlds.
The pessimist fears this is true.
Sounds about right locally.
An optimist only looks one way when crossing the street. KGB
Want to bet there is are no cotter pins in the wishbone nuts or they are the wrong nuts! I think this car was listed in the classifieds here. Looks like the out side was given a fresh coat of paint and new interior sometime in the not so distant past so it's no longer original.
Jay; I like that sign every time I see it.
Definition of an optimist: the guy that goes to the court house each year to see if his marriage license has expired.
Re;"Selling because of health issues, want car to go to someone who will enjoy it" to me that is used car speak for way over priced and going for the pity ploy.
If he really wanted it to go to someone that would enjoy it, price it for what it's worth, which in this current market is WAY less then his starting price. For a parade car or one or trips to the ice cream store it might be ok, but no telling how many thousands of $ will be needed to make into a good car. Just seeing the front end makes me wonder about the rest.
By the way it was a coupe I was thinking of.
It's missing the apron below the radiator too. Way too much money for the car.
Mark, you are probably right about the fresh coat of paint. There is no hood lacing either in the radiator shell or the cowl, yet there is no paint rubbed off the cowl!
What sort of front seats are those? The Tudor I imported has a different seat for the passenger, it is set further back, and has a lower backrest.

An Optimist sees his pessimist friend looking down in the dumps and ask him what's wrong didn't you follow my advice? The pessimist says sure did you said cheer up things could be worse so I cheered up and sure enough things got much worse!
I think he is being very optimistic all I see is a very tired car,and the value? Probably 4 or $5,000
An Optimist sees the glass as half full
The Pessimist sees the glass as half empty
The Engineer sees a glass that is twice as big as necessary.
and governor Brown (Califunny) see a water surplus that should be cited & fined!
Unless I am reading it wrong there is a bid on it.
Yes there is one bid but as it has not reached reserve, it may be a shill bid to garner interest.
Surely another Optimist :-)
Surely another Optimist :-)
Maybe this is the start of a new trend.
Maybe young people are starting to take an interest.
Maybe our T assets are about to skyrocket.
Maybe pigs will fly......
That's a lovely Fordor, and I don't blame the guy for trying to recover some of what he spent on it, but he's dreaming.
At least he has a best offer button activated so you can make him a reasonable offer!
I had to look up "Rotisserie/Nut & Bolt Restoration", just didn't click when I read it. Seems the car guy's are somewhat split on it's use as a description on the one site I looked at. The seller want's to point out that it's a "Rotisserie/Nut & Bolt Restoration" but does not say one word about the actual running gear. (?) It is a great looking car, like the color (even if it's not quite right) but the red velour interior, can you say; PIMP MY RIDE! Add the fact that it's a 4 door in the mix...hope spring eternal! Seems it's been listed before but don't remember the starting price.
Side note; I wonder how the wood frame work holds up to being put on a rotisserie turned on it's side? Seems to me that there would be a good chance of pulling something loose or sag when the body is on it's side.
