These parts are available on a New Zealand Auction site. There is shipping to factor in but the US dollar is very strong here so in your favour

Don't forget the time difference! It's 4:45PM US west coast time Nov 13 here and 1:45PM Nov 14 there (tomorrow). :-) Karl may be out for the afternoon, it's Saturday.

The seller and I have had contact and he does not wish to sell these parts overseas at this time and is unhappy that I drew peoples attention to his auction . Fortunately as I have learned overseas bidders can't bid on the auction site so this won't happen. I thought I was helping him and the hobby by connecting sellers and buyers but the seller does not see it like this. I told him I would remove this post but unfortunately I can't do this. I apologise to him and any potential buyer I have given false hope to. Some days you just can't win! -Karl

Well that narrows his market to who ever owns a model N in NZ, how many fingers do you need to count them?

First seller I've heard of that doesn't want folks to know he's sellin' something! This forum reaches folks in NZ too!
Are there enough N cars in NZ to use these parts? After all, they weren't "native" to NZ!

I know David I find it all a bit strange! Its not as though I was gaining anything from posting the link other than the satisfaction of possibly helping someone .I wish him the best for his auction but as Frank says he is fishing in a very small pool

Karl G, Thanks for the effort. But some days, no good deed goes unpunished.
I really would like to start picking up a bunch of NRS parts. I figure I have put about ten model Ts together over the years. Maybe I should up my game?

Karl,

Thank you for sharing the information. And as Rob pointed out, Ford of Canada supplied New Zealand. Ford of Canada had been exporting the Ford cars to New Zealand since the 1905 Model C. Of course not as many of the Fords were sold there as in the USA, but still a popular car.

Respectfully submitted,
