Ran into someone yesterday at a car show that wants to trade a flat fender jeep for a 1923 Model T pick up that was "professionally" restored. My limited research indicates that Ford didn't build one until 1925, so it's a pick up bed on a roadster cab or some t, I've got the jeeps and am intriqued by the possibility of a trade. I have not seen it or heard it run, but presuming it is a parade ready restoration, is it worth the $11,500 value he puts on it?
I was thinking more like $8k for a representation of a pick up.
Robert, the turtle decks on T roadsters could be easily removed so many companies sold aftermarket wooden pickup boxes to take their place. There were also lots of home made boxes over the years.
Of course, it could also be a '23 with a later Ford steel box on it, or might not be a '23 at all.
Depending on condition of the T 8 might be high. I would suggest doing some research on what your Flat Fender Jeep is worth first. Professionally restored could just be a paint job.
Simple answer. Not worth $11.5k. Hard to value without a photo but to give you an idea there is a 1914 with a 1960s C cab body on a correct chassis. Modified with starter one can buy for that $11.5 or maybe a bit less. Stored inside museum only driven in parades.
If a 23 roadster with a wooden pickup bed maybe $8k or a bit less. Again impossible without seeing in person.
That's the information I needed. Thanks, buys.
Parade ready wwII or post war military flat fender jeeps are 15k with numbers matching and some trinkets pushing them up to 20k and over with factory class restorations or Europian buyers seeing 25k plus price tags.
So need to do some horse trading on this one.
