Looks like a 1924 Ford to me - high radiator, hood and cowl.

It appears to be a nice car from this side. Additional photos of the other side, front, back, engine, interior, tires, etc would be nice. Especially at that price.

23 was a crossover year. Early low, late high.

1923 (Before August 1, 1923) low; 1924 (beginning August 1, 1923) high. 1923 low; 1924 high. Low, 1923; high, 1924. That's not to say there wasn't some overlap. With cars being assembled at dozens of different plants, some 1924 models may have been finished before August 1, and some 1923 models were probably assembled after August 1. But that doesn't change what makes a 1923 model and what makes a 1924 model.

A nice car, but for $18,000 I would expect perfect in every respect. Should be close to a 100 point car.

For that price, you'd think the owner would know that it's a 1924 year model, made in 1923. . . .
But then it seems a lot of folks don't realize that!

This still looks like a very nice touring. Possibly purchased and titled in 1923. Wish my low hood 23 looked as nice as that!

Maybe he's being told to sell it, but doens't really want to???? :-)

"Honest, I advertised it, but nobody responded!! Guess we'll just have to keep it."

Beautiful car.

There is a difference between asking price and selling price folks. That's where I'd start if it's as nice as it appears. You can't go up.

I don't trust her. She looks a little too happy to me. Smiling like that! That's probably not even a car. It's a cardboard cutout. And look at that smug look on his face.

Maybe he'd do better on the classified!

I agree with Dan B. You can't "go up". This certainly looks to be a great car, and apparently in top mechanical condition. Buy an $8K car and replicate this and I bet you'll be closer to the $20K area than you think. OCR from two years ago puts this car at $15,4K for grade 2 to $22K for Grade 1. This car looks to be quite a bit better than a Grade 2, but of course pretty hard to actually be a Grade 1. Those are all but impossible. So his asking price is pretty fair I would think. We all benefit from a car being able to hold up a decent value, rather than constantly trying to de-value Model T's that show up here. Just my thoughts. I know most will disagree.

I agree!

Nice car. To be a consistent nice car at that price means keeping it extra clean, polished and almost dust free.
'Looks' to be a great restoration and kept that way.

Kind of like buying a new car and a few months later the price drops because you drove it and put some miles on it. It would be what you wanted to do with it.

It goes back to how much you want to put in restoring a car. And how much you can get out of it if you sell it.

John..I can attest to that. While all of my cars are show quality & two moreso than the other two..I do drive 'em a lot. Constantly cleaning & polishing including the underside. Thank goodness for the lift.

I did a complete restoration of my 25 coupe 9 years ago. Tony Vershore did the engine and transmission, and I did everything else. I have $16000.00 in it, and can document every penny. Took me 2 years, and the car was complete when I got it. In other words, I spent that much just rebuilding all the components, new paint, top and upholstery, tires, tubes, and wood for the wheels. All the sheet metal is original.

If it was done like that, $18000 is a fair price.

Maybe a deep pocket newbee will find him and he clean up. This is a plain black end of the run T. It's nice but not $18 large nice. As some of you that watch the car auctions know you're not getting back any large overages you throw into a restoration. In fact it usually boils down to recouping total parts price or time/labor but not both. Doesn't happen. Especially on a plain Jane like this. Very nice brass cars go for this price. Me? Max $12.5/13.

SOLD for $22k!!!!


Gotcha... just kidding.

Its the price you want to pay for having fun ! Whether its a nice motor home that's used 1-2 weeks a year, a nice camper that's used maybe 4 times a year, a bass boat that cost to much, paying big money for this and that. The list goes on and on and---------------->

I know I will never recoup the money
I'm putting into my restoration,
but the fun and learning experience
you gain is priceless. Right John, its the price you pay to have fun. You only live once!
