The Centerdoor is completed with the exception of a few items here and there. She's ready for spring and a road test. Come on spring!!!

Very nice, Don! Looks as if you have another one waiting in the wings. :-)

What is that decorative thing I see hanging from the inside post? Ive noticed similar pieces on other closed cab cars. Is that a flower holder or ????

Rick, that's a bud vase. They're cool. You see them every so often on the enclosed cars.

Fantastic! I am having trouble resisting the temptation to restore mine after seeing how great yours looks!

Was the bud vase an original factory option or an aftermarket accessory? (Sorry, I don't want to high jack the thread).

BeauTiful car you have there.

Simply grand ! A beautiful job Don.

Rick, I've often wondered if bud vases came with the car. You'll see them in almost all sedans of the 'teens and 20s

Gorgeous!

Don - Beautiful!

Rich and Rick -- the bud vases were an after market accessory not produced by Ford.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap 1915 cut off

Thanks everybody I sincerely mean that. I will get some better pictures when I can get it outside and have some sun light. I can't explain how much it means to get your thumbs up on these projects. This forum is such a great thing to have and to share questions and get real answers. I just appreciate each and everyone that contributes too it. Long live the Model T !!

Don, that is a great job. How long have you had it? I really like the look of those centerdoors! Now you can spend the summer wearing out tires and changing oil. Drive safe and often.

Hi Dallas, I picked it up two years ago. But, I ended up putting it on the back burner for a 26 Tudor restoration and a 26 Fordor re-wooding job. So about a month ago I finally had time to finish it up. When I say finish it up I still have some clean up to do on the paint and a few more nuts and bolts to install. Once spring rolls around I can start tuning up the motor and adjusting the bands. Never ending but a better hobby for retirement can't be found.

Don , Im waiting on parts to finish rear axle rebuild then its onto rebuilding a Martin Parry wood cab for my TT. Really looking forward to that. Im not retired so this work thing gets in the way of T progress. I really look forward to T time!
Your quite the craftsman.

I saw the thread title, and wondered who it was? "It couldn't possibly be Don Booth!" "It hasn't been long enough yet and he does such nice work!"

Dang you're fast! It IS beautiful.
Thank you for the update. It truly is a wonderful and great car.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Really looks great Don, I checked out this car last week at Dons' place and he claimed he still had tons to do on it, it looked done to me! Real nice job on the fit of everything, and a custom roof that only another boatbuilder would love. Don't slow down and clean up the shop, get that 19 out of the trailer. Nice Job, JD

Last name: Booth
This famous surname is Anglo-Scottish, but arguably of pre 7th century Norse-Viking origins. It is or rather was, topographical, and described a person who lived in a small barn or bothy.

Very impressive. Quite a transformation. This car was on eBay a couple of years ago, was it not? Enjoy!

Yup Walter it was. It was way over priced and I waited it out. I was able to pick it up at fair price after a bit of arguing.

Thought it looked familiar. A Centerdoor is on my wish list, so I follow them when they come up. You were definitely the right owner for this one. So many in need of heavy repairs languish or don't get done correctly.
