This looks like a bargain.
Yes, I can see that it has an earlier rear end and that one front fender is higher than the other. But for $6K................
It certainly looks like a 1924 or '25 to me. Nice!
its not a 27 more like a 24-25
It looks more like a 1925 than a '27? Fenders, rear axle, cowl, radiator shroud, everything points to a pre improved Ford - and the 21" wheels suggests 1925.
I think the tank may have been flipped during restoration? Looks like the shut off is in a very hard to reach position between the exhaust and the drive shaft.
Yes, it looks like a 24-25. If it's as good as it looks in the pictures, that's a very good price.
Would you try to straighten out the Wisconsin title with a surety bond that says 26 or 27 (He uses both years in the description) or leave it as - is
US cars have the gas shut off between the exhaust pipe and drive shaft. What's up the paint crazing on the dash and part of the steering wheel? Besides the wrong year on the bonded title, the only other thing that bothers me would be the sag in the front doors. For that price I would live with the sag!
Sag in the front door hinges may be a sign some rewooding is in order, and that's lots of work with a Fordor.
I think I was a little confused there about the gas shut off, Mark (I must have flipped my own tank..)
That dash needs some love too. Looks pitted and rough. I wonder why you do a nice restoration job and leave it in that condition?
Looks like he just painted the wheels to make them look nice. Wires hanging from horn are frayed. What is with all the extra wires inside to the left of the driver-what are they for?
Why not include a battery if you are trying to sell a car?
Its a shame that it dont look healthy under that cosmetic beauty ... another words ... from far away looks awesome . At least thats the impression on most of us .
The buy-it-now seems crazy low. Definitely need to check on Wisconsin law about bonded titles since it's not legal to sell in some states until the (5-year) period is over. If I were to buy it, I would purchase it only on a notarized bill of sale and get the bonded title here in Louisiana where it is bonded only 3 years, not 5. I'd Compare Wisconsin and Florida laws.
That body has a lot of wood in it. The doors may be metal framed if it is late enough. There are not obvious signs of bad wood but problems could be there. I pieced a '25 Tudor together from 3 bodies a few years ago. At least this would have fairly good patterns even if the wood did have problems. For someone who could do any required work it would probably be a good deal.
Also the upholstery would cost about $2K if it didn't have that kit in it.
The dash almost looks like it was painted with that crackle spray paint.
The car is misdated. Looks no later than a 25. Unless it's a very late 25 that was carried over to 26 than sold as a 26.
There aren't'any 26 body parts on it.
If I wanted to buy it I let the title stay as it is.
Looks to be a good car. A lot of time and labor would be involved to build one plus the cost of parts.
Can that be rust painted over on dash ?
The truck he is selling looks pretty neat, too.
That truck is just plain cool!
That truck is WAY cool! It looks hefty enough to haul anything you could pile onto it. The roller bed and trailer system is pretty neat too. How many of those do you reckon exist today?
Plate is from 1940 - Wisconsin. Isnt the taillight on the wrong side?
Dave, You would look good driving that truck!
I would say it is an early 25. Mid year they changed the splash apron to a squared off style. The underside pictures show rust where there was movement, it appears they just painted over the
rust. The title they have is branded, it will stay
there for 5 years regardless of who owns it.
I love the truck. The price is nice. If only I had the time and space.
Made in December of 1924, so a 25 model according to the serial number shown, it does look like the aluminum doors and upper back panel, these were discontinued in mid year 24 and changed to all steel so it may be a replacement engine.
Well, it's sold apparently--anyone we know???
I know the car needed some work, wiring and such. A few things like bad paint on the dash and steering wheel left questions of other quality? And a few unknowns (like the condition of the wood framing) to consider. But the buy-it-now was low enough, that anyone interested in a car that could likely be enjoyed for years with just a little on-going work would have been smart to just grab it. Especially if it was close by enough to go look at it.
I know that when I first saw the listing, I really wished I could have considered it. I could really use a five passenger antique. But I still can't afford to buy much of anything right now.
I hope it found a good home, and gives a lot of good use to a happy owner.
