Looking for this 1916 T

Post by Dellpound » Fri Jun 28, 2019 6:56 pm

I sold this car to someone in the Idaho or Wyoming area ( if I remember correctly) in the late 1990’s. I would love to see if I could buy it back. Any information would be appreciated

Looks familiarly similar to Bob Cascisa's T in our Kitsap Peninsula Club (Washington State) with the exception of the wire wheels it's now sporting.

It had Rocky Mountain brakes, Ruckstell, horse hair under the leather and a starter.

Not me - but a close second cousin twice removed on the other side of the family. :lol:

Try putting it on facebook, too. More people will see it there.

There are several Model T pages on FB. Put it on more than one.

I’ve had many nice responses but still no luck in finding this car. Still hopeful.

Could have been parted out, repainted or etc. by now. Believe it not people have been known to do that to a good car.

More likely, and hopefully, it is just sitting in a garage someplace waiting to be driven and enjoyed again. I remember seeing a couple red '15/'16 touring cars over the years, but for me, most of those were some years ago, and some cars I didn't know who had them at that time. It isn't surprising that nobody is remembering the car if it has been several years since it has been driven. It is also quite possible that it may have been re-restored since, and painted a proper black. A lot of Ts were painted red many years ago. There is nothing really wrong with that, they were loved, driven, enjoyed that way. In more recent years, it has become more popular to paint them black as the Ford factory did when the cars were new. I know that several have been redone, but do not know any specifics of who or which cars.
