Maybe I should feed him and he will stay?
Don't feed it. You will just attract more.
Bob that's great. Just curious, how was it advertised? Did they list it as a 1912 or something else. If possible would you be so kind to take pictures of the front doors if you take them off. I have a 12 slab side like yours but have the wrong doors. The doors I have are for a late 11 to 12. Of course they don't fit so I've been thinking about building my own if I can't find the correct pair. Look under the front of the bottom seat pad on the lip rail and see if you have a letter & serial number there to identify the body maker. Thanks John
Bob - That looks like a really solid Touring Car! I can't help but think that you're gonna' have some nice "combinations" of Indiana Truck and Model T Fords. If you can figure out a good pair of loading ramps, and have a "T" with a Ruckstell or "under drive" Warford )or a loading winch on the Indiana truck) you'll have a fun way to drive your truck AND a Model T to various events!
Congratulations on your new Ford! And as John mentioned if you can post photos of any body numbers etc. that you run across that would be appreciated.

Great find! Keep us posted on what you do with it.
That is a great looking T. I wish it had followed me home.
Cool T touring.
Nice find Bob! Where'd ya get it?
I don't understand why so many people here have so much junk filling up their garage. I have plenty of ROOM here on my property where you all could dump that stuff. Just bring it by Bob and drop it off anytime.. Just trying to help...
Actually.. it looks GREAT! Congrats.
It's following you because it knows you have a soft heart!
That thing does look emaciated...maybe it's starved for attention...give it some and see what happens.
I've been wondering if you got that or not. So, looks like you have a bracket available then you don't need? Lol
I have been away from the computer since I posted the pictures. The T is now resting on a warm blanket next to the 13 and I have run the battery down with the starter (ME!) working on getting it to start. After a week of rest my arms are still not ready to try again. I will be looking for the missing parts over the next few months and will get some pictures of the numbers and doors.
The story on this one is my wife works with a woman that knew we had old cars and told her about the car her dad had but she didn't know what it was. Her brother had it since her dad passed away several years ago and they thought it was a 24/25 or 26 model T. After months of waiting she gave us the phone number and I called the brother and he told me it had 3 doors and a starter so I was expecting a 1919 to 1925 touring. The next day we looked at it and the flat fenders caught my eye and I was thinking maybe 14 touring. It was hard to see with all the stuff around it but after we had talked price I was leaning on the drivers side and noticed the door was not stamped into the side panel but was a panel bolted in an opening and then I looked over at the passenger door and it hit me....THIS THING IS A 1912 TOURING!! It took 6 more weeks after we saw it to get him to dig it out and let us have it. Now I am going to restore this one and will leave the 13 as is and just get it running and will have a nice restored 12 and unrestored original 13 to drive. The 13 might get restored some day but not for a long time.
Anyway, this one found me and I almost didn't even go look at it but thought I would either buy it to resell or help the guy out and get it running or find him a buyer. I guess I found him a buyer after all.
Fantastic! (I mean that, it would only be a fantasy for me.)
