Good evening,
We are looking for a van so that we can carry our 3 dogs when we take part in model "T" rallies in Great Britain and your delivery van looks ideal. How far are you from a container port as the cost of transport could be a problem. We have bought cars from the East coast in the past but never from the West so we would need to make enquiries from exporters before we could commit.

Regards

Dave and Maggie Dickinson

Scott and Tim. Thank you for the positive comments. I built this car with safety and reliability in mind for the purpose of touring with my two small children. Now they are grown and no longer have time for dad. I have to many cars and figured I would thin the heard.

The headlight buckets were included in a pile of Mercury speedster parts and were missing the reflectors and glass. The Ford reflectors and lenses fit perfect with no modification necessary so I used them. I have always believed they were Mercury; however, I could be wrong. I really like the look though.

Yes indeed. It is perfect for hauling both people and/or dogs. I know it kept my girls safe as I didn't have to worry about them falling out.
