Thanks!

Been for sale many years. Mr. Davis was at $175,000.00 about ten years ago. Someone will have to buy it from his estate sale I think.

Is it real or is it a custom vehicle?

I could be wrong, but I'd swear a coupla years ago this thing was on some site for $99K. Either way, rare or not, too much $$. There's a limit to everything.

I've seen it a couple of times, it's real. Lots of $$$!

The story I hear - someone correct me if I am in error please -

The car came out of Texas years ago with a different 1909 engine. Somehow the original engine and the body were separated. Someone married this S/N 6976 1909 engine - which is not a fake one by the way - with this original 1909 body.

It would be great if the original engine could be reunited with this car some day. The restored vehicle might be worth what the asking price is today.

That's close to the story I heard Royce, the engine came from Herb Bloom in Texas. I first saw the body down at Ray Wells shop in San Diego, I think he told me it had just come in from Texas. I saw the whole car about 3 years ago at the sellers house in Reno. I don't know about the different block story.

The fellow in Texas (Herb?) sold the engine to one guy and the rest of the car to another is what I heard. Not sure where the current engine came from but from the photos I have seen all through the years I don't see any evidence that it is not the real deal.

My valuation of the package would be less than half the current asking price.

Thanks for all the background info on this car. Now if I can just hit the Mega Millions on Friday, I'll show you pictures once I pick it up. ;)
