The bodies are the easiest part of a T to make. The rest is hard.

At Hershey a restored 27 2dr was being parted out. I don't understand how that could be more profitable than selling it whole. Seems like a lot of work, especially if it dosen't all sell.

"Restored" of just repainted? I've seen some so-called restored cars that weren't worth the sum of the parts. Have you priced new or used parts lately?

Or perhaps the owner couldn't get a title or getting it wasn't worth the hassle. In Texas, it's illegal to sell a car without a title but it happens. And whether you get a title is solely dependent on the clerk you're standing in front of at the time.

26-7 parts sell easily. Electricians pull wire to earn a living, masons sling mortar to do the same. To a dismantler, its their job and I'm sure if it wasn't profitable, they would find something else to make money at. Sure beats hoarders who let useable items rust completely away

They sell whole cars as parts because many people don't want to pay much money for an old car... i could sell my car piece by piece for twice what people would pay for it road legal, But i spent too long putting it together to do that.

On e-bay this morning, of the 51 cars for sale in the Model T category, only 13 are Model Ts. All the rest are an assortment of V8 engines, fiberglass bodies, Mopar rear ends, etc. So goes the hobby ! Harv.

What years were the fiberglass V-8 Model T's made ?

Can fiberglass be brass plated ?
