That body has been brought up for sale regularly, for years, for pretty much the same price. It's future is still that of it's past: unsold. I can't speculate on what it's worth, but am certain that whatever it was really worth 2 months ago, it's worth less than that today and will be worth even less than that in 3 months.

I know someone that bought a 17 not long ago with the same body and removable doorposts, complete running car, in a lot better condition, for less than that. Although it had a 21 running gear under that body but still. That seller is rather full of himself with the off the wall comments and description of the car and abusive comments towards the potential buyer. Just my opinion. Frank

While we seem to agree that it is over priced, it should be put on a correct 1917 runnning gear. Those with deep,deep pockets are paying huge sums for classics, it would be nice if one of those deep pockets persons would buy this body and complete the car. While I am not rich, I could buy the body and buy a 1917 running gear. I would be just for my satisfaction and knowing I saved another "rarer" Model T. My wife probably would go along, she would rather see the $$$ stay in our reserve account. With the present sitiuattion in our country, that is probably best. But still, it would be fun to have that T. And at 87 and other projects, it would be best to forget the whole idea about that T body. It is fun to dream!

Take care everyone.

You would be amazed at his collection, warehouses, storage units and barns at his farm filled with cars, trucks, tractors, fire engines, parts, memorabilia, etc.
You would also be amazed at how much he sells and what he gets for it.
Self made wealth, a walking encyclopedia of automotive knowledge and he doesn't care it it sells or not.
Where else can you advertise for people interested in what else you have to sell or want to buy??

I agree with Stan about Bob's collection.Impressive. Some years ago I purchased some model T snow machine stuff from him. When I went to pickup the parts I found them as he had advertised them. He is a very knowledgable guy. I would do business with him again.

Galen, I'm sure you didn't see anywhere near all of it. I've known him for 30 years and more and I have never seen all of it. He has a gorgeous 59 Cadillac 2 dr hardtop, Model T's, fire engines and the crown of his collection, a 1912 Kissell originally owned by Judge Clark of Virginia City, Montana that is probably worth in the 300K range. I've driven it several times.
Interesting and knowledgeable guy.

Why are we over endorsing someone who is advertise on eBay? I believe this is against the rules of this club. It has been advertised for years, like a lot of years, and the price is way out of the park in today’s money.

Please kill this thread.

Just a reminder what is right,

Hank

This seller always has really valuable and rare items but like Hank I object that these postings on the classifieds are not for sale here but on e-bay. Shouldn't the classified section be for what is available to us and not a link to an auction site? Doesn't the classified mean what can be purchased through the MTFCA and not directed to e-bay? If listed in our classified for sale section it should be available and if not should be removed. NO E-BAY listing is just my opinion.

I for one appreciate a heads up on a great find ,like this car body were ever it comes from . Yes I thank the asking price is to hight for most of us . But were are you going find another one . And I enjoyed looking at it . It is fun to me to see These rear Model T s . If someone from the club was to buy it, wouldn't that be good for club as a whole . I have a good friend who has two 1909s for sale he in my humble opinion is asking to much for them but I still enjoy seeing them . Just my two cents worth .

I thought the purpose of this club was to keep the Model T hobby going. What difference does it make where a part is listed ? If someone listed a part I had been looking for, I wouldn't care if their listing took me to E-bay, Craig's list, Online yard sale, Hemming's or a local news paper add. I would be grateful someone posted a part I might not otherwise find on my own. As to his asking price, he can ask what ever he wants. I am sure if someone was very interested in that body they would contact him and work out a price.
