Wow......if that car is even halfway correct (and I'm no judge) it's a steal at that price.

I would be after it except the "title missing" means it is worthless in North Carolina. Too expensive and rare to use as yard art.

It appears to have a wooden body and an early (09/10) hood former.

Later T front and rear axles.

Also, later running board supports and battery support bracket that shouldn't be there.

Looks like some early or home-made early looking parts bolted onto a later chassis to me. :-)

Looks like it has the later rear end under it and not sure about the frame. If it has the original engine in it it would worth close to the 5000.00 just for the engine alone to the right person. If I were interested that's the first thing I would check for.
Would ask if there is a title. The add says no vin. That's a big question.

Engine appears to be a 1913 - 1918. Vin number boss above water inlet, welsh plug instead of pipe plug and the style of "oil rail boss" on first bolt behind the timing cover. Probably 1917/8 just looking at the length of the Vin number location above the water inlet.

Fun looking at what is out there and thanks for posting. What about the body that Bill brings up?

I like the yellow T in the last pic better. Looks like accessory aftermarket body, grill, wheels ??? and who knows what lurks under that hood ... Hard to tell from the pics but it could be a real deal ... ???

The only thing that might actually be from 1911 is the body. Nothing else from that early. A badly made-up car.
A body worth about $2000 as-is (maybe a bit more?), and a couple thousand dollars worth of other parts.

The hood might be 1911.
Allan from down under.
