Interesting original car, especially with those side brackets. Seems like a reasonable buy it now price for a HCCA car.

A lot of good parts there for the money I think at the current bid. Maybe not worth the "buy it now ", (would depend how it runs and drives)
The funniest part is the adapted touring top bows!!!

Some interesting choices.
It could be a fun car.

It needs to run good for that price. Still a neat car.

It's in Fairmont, West Virginia. That's where fun goes to die. I spent about three months there doing consulting work for Alcan Aluminum in the 80s. I drove back home to Ohio every weekend. That place rolls up the sidewalks at 6pm.

I wonder if the running board braces are a bona fide accessory, or some kind of home brew fabrication?

I will make a prediction that bidder 7***y (270) will win if the vehicle doesn't get close to the "buy it now" price. eBays version of a ghost bidder. If you look at 7***y bid history, they have bought 3 vehicles in the last week from that seller, all different makes.

Stephen,

No offense but that describes most of Virginia ...

Which - personally I love - anytime I can be out of cellphone range on a two lane road for a day or more is a good day ..... :-)

Virginia and "West Virginia" are two separate states. I am amazed at how many people don't get that. And West Virginia is one of the only free states left in the union.

I agree with Freighter Jim. My wife and I are downsizing from a 4500 sq. foot house on 8 acres at the edge of a 7 million population metro area to a 1200 sq. foot house on one acre in a town with 18 houses, no public businesses and no city government. I am so happy I could pee down my leg! :-)

I'm not sure that I understand James Lyons comment: "West Virginia is one of the only free states left in the union"? Uhhh... What about Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin...

John,

My guess is - something concerning the Confederate Flag perhaps ....

John... Compare the laws of the state's you mention against that of West Virginia for Constitutional liberties. No comparison.

Maybe freighter Jim is saying much of Virginia is like Fairmont, WV? As opposed to unknowingly lumping the two together as the same state? :-)

I don't know but we would love to have that car in Idaho. :-)

James,

My comments were addressing the beauty & solitude of Virginia which apply to areas of West Virginia.

Also - Wyoming where I am today and Montana - where I will be for the next few days.

Frank is correct. it's a parts salad. For anybody who wanted to turn it into a real 1915 it would be a money pit. I sure wouldn't click that Buy it now button. It would be a fun car for anyone who didn't care about being authentic, but nine grand is too much.

Looks like it has the "half moon" cut out above the coil box. Usually indicates a later model, not 1915.

Robert Bente - I agree. Please keep us posted as I'll forget about it by Tuesday afternoon.

David Nebelsky:

The half moon notch in the cowl appeared in 1917 model year, due to the radiator rod being raised.

However, the body on the car is much later than 1917 due to the angle iron style brackets where the body attaches to the the firewall. I believe the angle iron brackets appeared in calendar 1919. 1917 Fords had wood block brackets, not angle iron.

The seller lists 91219 as the serial number when that is actually the casting date (9-12-19) which can be seen in one of the photos. Also note the timing cover with the generator block-off that was used on 1919-21 non-starter cars

We all know it is a later car disguised to look like a 1915 Ford. My opinion based on other details I see in the photos: swapped out parts aside, the car is actually a 1920 Ford (Sept or Oct 1919 assembly).
