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?
George: Any links to the magazine article ???
So this car is not operational any more?
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 ".
