Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: 1914 Model T for sale on Ebay

Just ran across this ad on Ebay for a 1914 T for sale in California for $11K, way too far for me to check out, looks like it could use some work but looks to have been built in late 1913 with a 1913 dated block etc. If it runs and drives good price doesn't seem too bad.

I wish I could afford it. It is about seven hours drive from me.
A properly installed top would help it a LOT! (It is installed backwards!) Otherwise, preserve and enjoy.

Good eye Wayne! At least the horn is installed properly! Probably should've been painted black other than the screen rim, but still looks nice like that anyway. :-)

If the top was installed backwards wouldn't it have a skylight? Is there some other backwards way to do it?

Tim..they just reversed the top deck. The rear window part goes on separately. The "other Tim". :-)

The sad thing is, to me, it's probably a good car for someone who could check it out and make sure it's not cobbled together. Presentation on this Ebay listing is a perfect example of what NOT to do...poor pictures, little detail, guess they figure the world will come rushing to their door, but poor presentation surely keeps away serious bidders. As a trimmer, the top astounds me, and signals that someone had the car and had no idea of right and wrong.

Got it. Having never replaced a top I didn't know they came in two pieces. Thanks other Tim!

It was discussed here prior to previous sale.

I believe that car was offered at the Bakersfield swap meet. I saw it and it looked like a good, honest car.

It doesn't appear to be the same car that was at Bakersfield.

Yeah I thought the top looked a bit off too. It's a car that would definitely need a closer inspection as pictures on Ebay can be a bit deceiving but if it's a true honest 1914 and not an assembled car of various year parts I'd say it's a decent buy, hope someone can pick it up!

It's the same car that was for sale in Bakersfield this year. It was also for sale at Bakersfield in 1999. I looked at it then and a couple of years later. The then owner wanted more for it than I was willing to pay. It's definitely not an assembled car. It has an interesting history, at least in my opinion.

Took another look at this car..like Wayne, if it weren't so far away....It's a cute little car, if it were within a one day drive it'd be in my barn now. And this one I'd just "clean er up" and have fun, well, after reversing the top deck that is! I'd even leave the horn all brass. Shocked there's no bids so far. With no reserve, someone stands to get a great car at a very fair price.

It is indeed the car that was at Bakersfield. I just got an email from the owner. I've seen this car several times, and it is a candidate for a restoration. It is 100% authentic, but the lamps would probably need replacing. There is a big dent in the turtle deck. If I was looking for a 1914 roadster, I would buy it in a heartbeat. I think the price is reasonable too.
