Would be nice to be able to check this T out. Can anybody tell me what the box left of the steering column is?

Happy motoring,

Warren

It is a KW Master Vibrator (accessory coil). Looks like it's running on that one coil, as the coil box looks empty.

The windshield on this car is an uncommon Rands with equal halves. This car is in about the same shape mine was in when I bought it.

Maybe Marvin can check it out. He lives pretty close.

Too bad that car was a victim of poor storage.

Barn findů.this is what happens when you don't maintain the barn roof.

A KW Master Vibrator requires four coils in the coilbox for the engine to run.

Just saw the Forum thread. I've just had an injection into my arthritic hip, so don't know if I'm able to provide quick input.... Location is about 60 miles due north from me, according the map provided. Am going to contact an owner of a '14 who lives in Green Bay & give him the info. 'Help' comes from all over.

Talked with my friend, who has some familiarity with the car...."Rough", wood & metal, some 'Johnny Cash' car. "Pass at that price." (That's coming from the 'FYI Dept.')

"Rough"

That's the best word to use for this 1914 touring body for sale at Hershey this year.



Really caught my eye while passing by, thought maybe the plywood risers were not too bad, some pine and oak wood there too....

Price was really interesting...



until....

scroll down a ways!








..til walking around to the passenger side and seeing 1/2" chucks of Bondo falling off rusted through and dented worn out original sheetmetal! Oh..Oh..

-Robert, and others having an interest-
I was able to track down another T-owner further north of me, who has actually seen the car, albeit a couple of years ago. He said the car was original, other than the rear axle, which he thought would also need need some work. Other than to replace the driver's side fenders and splash apron, he recalled a thought of the body being fairly 'sound'. Demountables, non-running, and maybe a bit 'steep', but doesn't know if the guy would do any compromise. Hope that helps someone.
