Item number 232800427152
Can't argue with that starting price! and no reserve, someone could end up with a cheap veteran T.
Looks like most everything is there, would be a fairly smooth restoration.
Dang! I just spent all my spare cash, being in Palatka, Florida it is real close to me and Probably Dan T.
Hooray! Today was my Lucky Day! I just won the 1914!!
Can't see expired Ebay listing. What did it go for?
Something going on there. Even a listing that was sold of ended you can still see it.
I found the listing thru advance search but every time I try to see the original listing it takes me back to the 1914 steering wheel parts which has the same listing number. Please contact Ebay before you proceed. I think there is something afoot. As you can see from their feed back they have sold the same item to the same seller all with the same info. Good luck.
Up until a month or so ago, one could view expired listings if one had a link or knew how to do a good search (and provided it was not too old). I often had links for cars or parts I was interested in even if I wasn't looking to buy, and sometimes listings that had expired two years before would still come up and let me look at the pictures.
Now? You get a blue highlighted line that says "The listing you’re looking for is no longer available. Check out this similar item we found for you." And MOST of the time, the "similar" item is NOTHING like what the expired listing was. I swear, most (not all, I know a few that are quite intelligent) computer people are clueless idiots. Just because the number "14" is somewhere in the listing, does not make it anything related or of ANY interest! (Think I am exaggerating? The first time I saw this, I was trying to see what had happened with an unrestored antique era Cadillac I was curious about, and the "similar item" they showed me was a fiberglass bodied 23 T-bucket. Well, it had four wheels? Maybe it had a Cadillac engine?)
Congratulations Steve R!!!! I hope you enjoy that wonderful car for many years. And I hope you update us with more pictures and your plans for it.
You can still see it. Search by item number :
I have talked to the seller about the car and it is a real 1914. She sent me pictures of different parts of the car that I wanted to see. It has been the family for some time from what she said. I am looking forward to getting it up and running, it's too original to restore. I'll repair the rear with new thrust washers clean the engine out replace two piece valves, trans bands, replace all incorrect parts like the headlight, taillight, carbide gen, brass top coils, etc.. I'll be looking for unrestored parts after I get her home.
Wayne I'll post pictures when I start the process.
Thank you Steve R. I would like to see a few more preservation quality cars out and about to be seen. I look forward to seeing more pictures.
Can see the ad but not the full listing. Must be a car for sale thing. I can look at the full listings in parts on items sold.
By the way, very cool to get it. Have fun.
Congrats on the "new" car. I was watching and wanted to bid because it is perfect and the price was right but have 4 early cars now to play with so I am glad someone from here got it and even better someone from Indiana! I hope to see this one when you get it going and maybe we could get together and do some driving or help each other out with parts. I would rather trade than sell what I have so let me know what you need when the time comes.
Thanks Bob, I still can't believe that I won, did you get the pictures from her? I can't believe all the detail like brass fuel line, cotter pins in the pan bolts, splash pans and stuff like this. My wife said I got an early fathers day gift yesterday and I have to agree.
I did not bid and knew it would be a waste of the sellers time to ask so never saw the pictures. Maybe you could post them here for all of us to see while you wait for the car to get home. (hint hint)
That looks like a fun project at a very fair price. I hope you enjoy it.
Wash, flush, fill, lube and drive the heck out of it! Nice patina.
