Nice looking '10. Not sure if the auction is actually AT Hershey Swap meet, or just at Hershey PA.

It is almost too nice. Has E&J lights, so they are probably new Gilbert lights. I am not sure about the green chasis and wheel spokes. I would like to know the engine number. Looks like a trailer queen.

Very nice, but why the steering wheel up side down?

Far too shiny for me, engine looks like its powder-coated. I think the green is too bright, Brewster Green is almost black. Upside down wheel, well, unless you're a tall man those early short columns are long streetch away from the seat

being a 1910, "it is nearly a century old." !

But yeah, a nice car for sure

23554 is the engine number. I just took a quick look at the car as I had another car to look at before it crosses the block tonight. I didn't study it in detail, but it appears to have all of the right major pieces with the exception of the carburetor. Rear end, front end, transmission cover and engine all look real. A very nice restoration that was probably show quality when it was finished. Very nice and proper leather. Paint color is a little light, but still looks good. I would call this car is a a retired show pony that is ready to become a driver. It will make a nice car for someone, and, like so many cars, you can't restore one for what you can probably buy this one for. This one crosses the block tomorrow.

Very nice car - too nice for me :-)
09-'10 had shorter steering columns than later years, so the flipped steering wheel is probably just for a better personal seating position for the owner. An extension on the throttle lever would help if the next owner also wants the wheel that way.

I looked over the 1910 just before the auction. It really looks quite nice with mostly correct parts. I did forget to take an overall picture, sorry.







And just to show itís not perfect, the bows donít fit together correctly on the passenger side



Nice car, I agree the color is too light but there again so is mine ......

Tony, what did the car sell for?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Tony Bowker, Ramona, CA on Friday, October 06, 2017 - 08:23 pm:

Darel, the 1910 I saw today had wood spokes and according to the Encyclopedia, the chassis from July 1909 until at least October was Brewster Green. According to the same source, there was a man on the production line painting split pins as they were installed :-)

Did anyone see what lot #271 went for? It's the 1926 Model T 2 door looks like a well restored car. Thanks!

I fell in love with the 33 Duesy with d'leteren cabriolet body but I didn' buy a lottery ticket this week ;-)

I think the '26 Tudor went for $10,500.
It looked to be absolutely perfect inside and out and had wire wheels to boot although I prefer wood spoke wheels on T's.
The bidding stalled at 9K but it was a charity car meaning all the proceeds would go the the aaca and elsewhere.
After a bit a cajoling by the auctioneer it went up $1500.

1910 T sold for 60K plus 10% buyers premium. I also liked the 33 Duesy, but way out of my league.

Does anyone know an easy way to get the paint code from this car? I would love to paint a car this shade of green.
