On Monday we were getting gas on the tour and a guy approached us in our model T and said he has one of these. Usually this means any kind of old junk. Not so this time. We had time later so we went by this guy's place a few miles out of town. There he opens a shed door on a 27 pickup where it has been since 1950. It's for sale but I am a long way from home. Would like to know if anyone in the area has trailer space going west. Any ideas?
Yeah! Freighter Jim!
With your talents, DRIVE it back home!!!
Sorry, couldn't resist!
Send pics once the deal is done, so cool, another barn find--they ARE still out there!
Today I am traveling Interstate 10 in Texas.
Ross Lilleker is on the tour but I think he has a full trailer back to Texas.

Thanks guys. I will put up pics when I get home. I gave the contact info to some of the local guys. This model T has spent its entire life within 50 miles of here in one family. As much as I would like to bag this thing, l think it would be nice to see it stay here where its history could be more appreciated, so I am giving the people here a shot at it. The man showed me the title dating from the 30's in his grandfather's name. He is said to have hauled bootleg liquor with it. The price given me is good, in my opinion. Anyway, this is as close to a "barn find" as it gets. The only thing is, it was never really "lost". Just left alone for over 50 years. It was a highlight of our trip to see it, a very rare sight indeed. If nothing happens with it locally, I'll pass the number on to others.
