Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Grandpa's Model T parts

Hello! My grandpa recently passed away and my aunts and uncles are asking me to figure out what his Model T parts are worth. Please help because this would mean a lot to my Grandpa for his children to get what they can for the things he left behind. He has a plane Model T frame and he has a number of running boards, all with the Ford logo on them.

Plane Model T Frame
Model T Running Boards
Plane Model T Frame - side view

Any help on what these parts may be worth would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks,

George

You have a frame, gas tank and 5 running boards. If the tank is good, no rust inside, then I would say 35 for the frame, 35 for the tank and 10 each for the running boards, or about 120 altogether.

George, that frame has been used as some sort of a Table? Why did your grandfather use that for? Are the legs welded on?

Most of the running boards have been cut, so not worth much.
If your grandfather valued those parts? Maybe the best way to honor that would be to collect the rest of the parts and put it together into a nice car.
But be careful. Model T Fords can be an addictive hobby.

Note that the legs appear to be rear crossmembers. Near my house are scads of things made out of frames and even a few buried rear ends act as 'deadmen'.
