It has been on eBay for a couple of years. It was bid as high as $21K at one time. He should have taken that bid if it was real.

After looking again at the photos I don't think it is the same car. This is a good looking 14!

I agree, good looking car at a good price. Wish I had the money and room for it! :-)

I don't want to say much about it, because, well?

Hmm.

Well, it Does appear to be a '14 engine. At least partially (cannot tell for certain without a close inspection). And there are some other genuine '14 parts.

This car was listed for quite some time a month or two ago. I don't recall ever seeing it before this year.

Anybody recall some write-ups I have done in the past (some several years ago!), where I went on about "how much more is known about model Ts today, and how they were built, than was known forty (fifty, sixty now) years ago"? Remember me telling about some strange restorations where major parts were really wrong? Wrong by sometimes about ten years? And I wasn't talking about using a '20s engine, rear-end, or front axle in a brass era car? (That of course being a common cheap trick to get a brass car on the road because they all fit fine and work well. Been known to do that myself.)

Look CLOSELY! Know what you are looking at. Know what you want, and what you want from it.
It is a nice looking car, and could be a fantastic car for someone.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
