I didn't look it over very closely, but it looks like a nice one.
And a rather reasonable price.
And it's not yellow! I'd take a stab at the '11 for the right price, altho I'm not in the mood for a repaint job.
The '12 torpedo just lacks a bit of something what with the longer runningboard and "standard" fenders. But I do believe that model addressed the issue of being able to reach the pedals better than the '11.
I notice that it has a Ruckstell axle.
Would this use the 1912 axle parts or something newer?
I find it amusing that Ford's penchant for reducing a lithe, spritely and highly attractive model to something bloated, heavy and commonplace in their later iterations (e.g., Thunderbirds and Mustangs) goes all the way back to the Model T Torpedo.
Tough to reach the pedals or not, the '10 and '11 Torpedoes are to die for. The '12, well, I like your Commercial Roadster better, Tim . . . and hey, if you'll take a stab at that '11 Torpedo, I'll come out to O-hee-oh and paint it for ya !!
Rich, careful now...I just might take you up on that!!
I can certainly appreciate what you guys are saying, but everyone has differing opinions...while I wouldn't say the earlier cars are ugly, I'm not really a fan of the angles of the windshields. Meanwhile, I certainly feel a 1912 can be extremely attractive if done right. Unfortunately, they will forever be out of my price range.
