Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Value for swap meet sale?
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Chris Bamford, Edmonton AB on Tuesday, April 26, 2016 - 07:31 pm:

I'm lugging a bunch of stuff down to the Red Deer, Alberta swap meet this coming weekend.

Most are smaller and/or non-T items and I'm fine pricing them on my own. However, I'm at a bit of loss about FMV for these two items...

The gas tank appears solid and missing the cap. FMV and fits what years?

The front and rear bumpers came off a '26 touring, include all the bracketry and are pretty straight.

Thanks in advance!

My Australian prices are not much use, but all those bits are available from the vendors. I would think half the catalog price would be more than fair, perhaps more for good originals.

Others may disagree.

The bumpers are very nice. In 1957 I paid $15 for a similar set. Accounting for inflation, those bumpers ought to bring at least $200. If the inside of the gas tank is good, maybe $40 a plus another $20 for the sweet potato.

Ted, that seems logical, but these are aftermarket bumpers, I'd expect to see them around $100 starting price, and be willing to drop it.
But then, What do I know? Prices are for 'round these parts, might be totally different where you live!

If the sediment bulb is cast iron, it's likely the tank is from 1916-1920.
