Popular Science magazine for February 1953, carried a multi-month article about the rebuilding/restoration of a 1924/1925 runabout. Is the car still together? The car began its rebirth in New Jersey. Is this worth a discussion?

Bob and others attached are gif scans of the article from the 1953 Popular Science mag. It is of interest to not that a year or so later the magazine offered a Model T as a prize for the best Model T Ford story. I apologize for the quality of the copies from the original mag.

Gad, he paid only $20 for it in 1953? Inflation must of set in by 1955 when I bought my '26 roadster for $50 and his had the top, the spare tire carrier and running board luggage rack!

I recognised that car from one of the first Model T books I bought over 50 years ago.
Here is the image depicted on one of the last pages in the book " TIN LIZZIE ".
