Resto complete

It's been a year & a half in the making. It's a '25 Roadster PU. 12v conversion. Opted to go with the available oak bed kit. I res poked and used the same stain/sealer for the spokes and bed. Obviously I took liberties with some originality, the body color for one. It is more blue than I would have liked (I was going for more a grey/blue. But everyone seems to love it. Side lamps are from a '18 or '19 and converted to turn signals.
I won't take credit for all the work. A local old car resto shop did body work, paint and some mechanical.
Not all T people will agree with the changes. I particularly love it.

Have to say you did a really nice job and love the color. I’m thinking that Ford used that color on the 26-27 T’s and on the Model A’s. It looks authentic for the 20’s and 30’s era to be sure. Nice!
