I'd even take a crack at the body too.

What the heck! I've dreamed of finding one like that. Did someone just drag it out of the barn or what?

Half the Ts I have restored, I started with worse.

Shoot, I started with nothing and this mess is 300 times cooler...
What on Earth happened to this poor relic?

Ditto...I don't see parts....I see a car that needs parts ADDED to it to get back on the road.

It's really a shame the owner of that car allowed it to get in it's current condition.

It sits there because the current owner thinks he has a $20,000 antique car.

1913, right?

Harold,

Yes, 1913 body - you can see the doors (and fake door) go all the way down to the bottom of the body. They are a straight line and are not rounded like the 1914 - 1925 cars. See: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/411944/463748.html?1406109267 where Jay posted the photo of the 1913 model year touring that is shown below: (Thank you Jay!)



Compared to 1914 where the door is rounded on the bottom and does not go all the way down to the bottom of the body.

Below is a photo of Paul Mikeska's 1914 touring for comparison: (Thank yo Paul for sharing that photo).



I don't mind that folks say "it is not for sale" which is the same thing as asking way too much for the item. But I do regret someone letting them rust/rot away. That is sad to me.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

That car will soon be in the road again. I know this because I bought it several years ago and the project is progressing well. The first picture is a few days after I brought it home. That is my brother driving the car around the yard. It started on magneto and ran well. Of course I had to use some spare parts I had lying around. The second photo shows what the same car looked like last month. Since then I have painted all of the body parts that are to be black.

I remember seeing that car somewhere for sale. You have done a magnificent job on the dry build. Looks right, fits right, gonna be a really nice car.

Tom, thank you. It would be much more difficult for hobbyist like me to put these old cars back together if not for the parts that you and others like you provide.
