Is this the future of model T's regarding price?

Aftermarket K-W Model F belt driven magneto which I believe is merely a dynamo that uses the stock timer.

Nope. At least not anytime soon. Especially from the teens on, they're just too plentiful to match a pre-T for price. Even that one is high, though they may get it. Volo's asking prices are always pretty steep. I don't know how often they get what they ask.

Is the steering wheel mounted correctly?

I have been to that "museum". It's one of those "consignment" places that store your car for you in a climate controlled, indoor display area and advertise your car for you (all for a hefty monthly fee, of course). :-)

After clicking the link, I see that must be the $64,000.00 question.

The car is a good serviceable Model S, not a museum quality piece. The cowl lamps and tail lamp are 1911 - 12, and are nice parts that are likely worth more than the correct lamps that the car deserves. The Rushmore headlamps are period correct for this car. Wrong carburetor of course, and many other details that are OK for a driver but not OK if you want 100% authenticity. All that has an effect on price.

I think this one will probably sell for $50 - $55000 which is what the Volo people are figuring on. They price things so that if they get an offer of 80 percent they can take it. Well run business.

Looks to me like it's in St. Louis, not Volo, which is in far northern Illinois. No big deal here, just sayin'.

Yep it's St Louis car museum. Same thing as Volvo, a professional dealer. That's not a bad thing. The buyer is in charge of the deal. If it costs too much don't buy.
