    Was contacted the other day about this 1925 Model T Touring and asked if I am interested in buying it.Car has been stored for over 25 years and in it history the engine and trans went missing. It was taken out for a rebuild and strip down and parts went missing or lost. Body looks to be very sound and was painted about 35 years ago.Looks good just aged. They want $3500 for it.Is it worth that? I was wondering what it would look like with maybe a flatty, steelies and even full fenders.Thinking if I buy it to leave the body as is just update the frame,front end,rear end and engine with something from the 50`s. Having a hard time finding pics of pre 26 model T touring hot rods.most I find are stock.Would love to see some.

    Cool car but it is a 27.I have come across a few 27`s that have been hotrodded but no 23-25.
     
  4. Nope, not a 26/27. They had the coil boxes mounted on the engine. That car has it mounted inside the car, under the dash

    I wouldn't pay that much unless it ran, had a title and I wanted that exact car. BUT, I'm a tight ass!! It's worth it if you're willing to pay that, would make a cool little family cruiser though!

    Go for it. If the body is fairly solid it is worth it. There is nothing like having a back seat.

    Here's mine. 1917 steel body, 322 Nailhead, dynaflow, torque tube, 32 front and rear axles, 49 Ford dash, 39 Chevy headlight housing covers pitman arm. Built in 1953.

    My gas tank is vertically mounted between the back seat rest and the rear of the body.

  9. This one comes to mind. I used to see Norm driving it all the time in Sun Valley when I was a kid. Too bad about the "Porter" deal

    Here's a '17 that sold for $4500 last month at a local auction. It was running 20 years ago, but has since been left to rot. I'd have no trouble paying $3500 for the one you're looking at.

    He's talking about the black touring in post #2, not the one pictured in his post.

    If it comes with a good title it is definatly worth the asking price.
     
  16. Yeah. Maybe my reading comprehension isn't what it should be, but the second post isn't his, as he stated. Also, I agree with him as far as the year of the car goes. Looks just like my '25 under the hood, 'cept mine ran.

    looks like fun but kinda steep for the rock isint it.
     
  19. Check the G.G. posters online. There was a nice green and white fenderless one used for the Pacific nw nationals in puyallup 2{?} years ago. I believe they have them archived somewhere on there website
     
  20. While not a Model T, here's an example of a touring car hot rod.

    It's my '17 Dodge, home-built 19 years ago.

    I bought mine 1 1/2 years ago. I have not had the chance to mess with it yet. If the body is solid and you want one I would say go for it.

    OK...I'm completely lost.
    Why would antique cars be cheaper over here compared to anywhere else?
    For us to get a rustfree car from down south the shipping costs are outrageous! To me....that would seem to equate to Antique cars on the "Rock" being priced higher than cars in Ontario or even Nova Scotia for that matter.

    That T is in really nice shape.
    I'd gladly pay the asking price without haggling IF I wanted it.
    Doing my own work and buying a lot of new parts, that could be on the road for WELL under $10,000.00 including purchase price.
    It's too nice for me and deserves someone who won't cut it up...:D

    I'd actually like to see that one restored.
    A Model T is a wonderfully interesting car in stock form. Pure genius!

    While I don't disagree with this, I think you could easily go any direction you wanted with it. Mine was buitl from junk and leftovers, that's a great start for something truly fun. $3,500 seems like a price you could make back pretty quick & maybe a little extra.

  26. This is what I'm thinking of, Touring car with a "Y" that's my style. :D
     
  27. The more I look at it the more I think, if you don't want it I'll come up and get it. $3500 don't seem too bad. :rolleyes:
     
  28. 3500 for a car that is complete body wise and painted and reasonably straight that is a good deal. Unfortunately tubs don't sell for big bucks when done, but are a blast to rip around in. And that Stude tub is a Ford. Go for it Fitzee. Pat.
