Does "Texan style" mean that it's a cobbled-together mess with an atrocious color scheme?

"Professional Frame-off restoration" is in the ad. Right. You'd think that for $21K you'd at least get a parking brake.

I like this one better, and it has documentation to boot.

If I didn't need a new roof it would be mine!:-(

Both have incorrect tops, and the first one has the wrong pickup box. Why do people do these things?

Larry : the first one also has a 26/27 transmission
and the rest of the engine pictures don't show enough to tell about the year of the engine. I know the top on the second one is wrong but one afternoon's work can fix that if all of the documentation is as it appears, but like all cars "Caveat Emptor" applies and on "T's" it is strongly recommended you look at what you are buying in person. :-)

But it looks like that first one even has a water pump! Then, there's the 'star' in the driveway, too. (If it's on 'dollies', does it even run?)

Hi Marvin,

Yes, when I saw the "dollies" I, too, had the same thought. I think that has got to be about the worst way to depict a vehicle for sale.

i try not to be as critical of things as other people are but that first one does have eye wateringly bright paint. Where is the grease cup on the rear axle? is that why it's on rollers?

Watch it, Mike. The description left out the word "North", as in North Texas style. No T restorer south of Nacogdoches or Austin would bring such blaspheme upon a Model T, unless their wife was threatening them with an ultimatum.
