Very nice and it really look's like a good sale!Bud.
Wow sure does. Love to have the neon Ford sign or even the Globe. Bet they both go for mega-bucks!
Hey.... how come there are no front doors on that 1912 body? ;o)
We've never owned a brass era T but if I were able to get an early one with removable fore doors, I'd certainly keep them, but would roll without them. To me part of the lure is the open-ness
Not quite Manitoba, but you can see it from there. Too bad it's so far away. Looks like a good one.
Four miles from me, across the Red River of the North and into Minnesota. I will be there!
That '29 fordor Model A shown is a rare Briggs Blindback; production numbers for them are less than those for the A400('31 Convertible Sedan), yet they don't get much attention. Real sleeper there.
And the Snow-Bird; WOW!! Looks like a real neat auction.
Michael - it's a March 1911 car, so it shouldn't have any fore doors.
The 1911 "project car" s/n 84688, would be a late '11 with dip type fore-doors. With one photo, there is not a lot of detail, but the sill looks different from mine. It might be a bitsa.
The earliest fore-door car I know is 83913.
Mine is 85532.
When did Randy Driscoll pass away?
Roger.. Thanks.. shows what I don't know, eh? ;o)
The auction produced some real bargains based on what I viewed on line. Wish I would have been a bidder in hind sight, even would have been better if I could have attended. The online event had about 40 items available I think but from what I heard there were even greater bargains on the on site auction for parts and other items. Did anyone here buy the March 1910 open valve block? WOW 2200.00 that's a bargain which also had the timer cover and fluted oil cap. I'm very happy for at least one person I know that bought a big ticket item. I bet it was a lot of fun despite the reason the things were being sold.
Any idea who got the 1911 restored car?
Or the 1911 "project car?
Does any body know results of early touring prices thanks patrick
Yes, I'm happy to announce that I am no longer searching for a 1911 Model T Touring; I purchased the green 1910 Touring from the Randy Driscoll auction today, at 25K! I think that was a fair price!
pics, pics, pics!
Right now the only pics I have are from the auction site. I'm in the process of arranging payment/delivery since I was an online bidder. But believe me, once she arrives I will be flooding the site with photos!
Congrats! Bill my dad is there now and has bought a lot of parts he called and told me he thought you had bought it. If you ever want to talk 09-10 Ts give me a call. Stop by if you are ever in the Battle Creek area. Mark Eyre
Here are some photos I have that were sent to me.
Thanks, Mark, I will indeed!
Very nice. Congrats. I'm sorry that you had to settle for a 1910 after searching so long for a 1911...
Congratulations bill good price
I was at that auction today. Beautiful car and well bought. Congratulations!
Congrats, Bill. Your patience paid off. Boy, that looks sweet!
Lots of parts both early late were for sale at the auction. Most parts went at pretty reasonable prices. I bought the open valve block for a friend at a very reasonable price. I thought the cars went at under market prices, if I had my truck and trailer there I'd have bought an unrestored 10, it went pretty cheap. Scott Schuster and Stan Howe did a great job with the auction.
If someone could get Bills 10 to Indiana I could drive, er store it for him till it finds a way home.
