Had a guy leave a note on my door today with a phone number and it said T parts for sale. Of course I called him. He has a 27 4 door body with no rust out anywhere. All sheet metal except splash oprons. Seat frames and springs included. No dents or holes in metal. Dash,very nice hood . No wood. I have not seen this stuff yet. Meeting with him this weekend. My question is whats it worth? He spent a couple years collecting this stuff for a hotrod project with his buddy. His health is failing and wants it go where it can be used. I have heard that the 4 dr is a lot more work and expense. No drivetrain. Just a rolling chassis. He says nothing has been cut. Anything I should look for? Experts fill me in.

Body? Rolling chassis?
Better take a look at it.
I have seen ads for bodies that turned out to be 100 percent complete cars, they just didn't run
If it's a rolling chassis it must have a rear end and front suspension.

"No Wood" concerns me. The Fordors are a wood body, with sheet metal tacked on.

Did the 27 4dr have structural wood other than the roof?

Yes, the entire structure is wood.
