considering selling off rear half of a 23-25 touring body with top bows and top, spare tire rack included. My question is regarding demand and pricing for this piece.? The body is straight pretty much rust free but does have wooding issues, both doors are there still hinged to body. The top material I think is salvageable for a "survivor" look vehicle but several of the bows are broken. Also have the spare tire mount and tail light.
If you are able, pictures would help very much.
Jim not really in a spot to do that as top is stored at my other garage, just testing the waters on demand ...not sure of the market on this. If i do sell I will post good pics. Thanks.
Guys and Gals are always looking for parts to repair their Model T's and I'm sure if you advertise it for sale someone will request pictures and a price. I would suggest that you list it in the classified section with a photo and what you think is a reasonable price and go from there. You can always reduce the price if it is listed longer then you would like. If it is 1/4 of a model t body then ask 1/4 the body price.
Anyone with a cut-off touring in that year range that wanted to convert their car back to a touring car would be interested.
What would you want for the entire top assembly with fabric?
Don still on the fence with this whole thing and if I do list for sale would want to start out with a package deal. I am not trying to "dangle a carrot" with this post but rather trying to see IS there a market for this body ...truly clueless on the market for this. Thanks!
It seems there’s always a market for original Henry steel in good nick.
Price could run between $100 and $900 depending upon condition.
Two years ago, at Chickasha, this rear seat only, with lots of old seat material and seat cushion, had asking price of $400. Don't know if it sold.
Seems to me to part out the items, top iron set, top cover, spare carrier, and list the seat with doors. That way more interest, better than bundle offer which would discount the other pieces.
Many years ago I got a back seat from Texas shipped Railway Express to TN, for making a cut-down back into a touring car, there are folks out there today like me, perhaps
