Believe it or not, if its a Model A or T, it could be restored. With the number of parts sites out there, you could practically build a model A or T from scratch. By the way, I was joking about being restorable.

Lets put it this way. I wouldn't take that one on. It looks to be too far gone to salvage anything.

Be interesting to find out what is might be.

Not an A for sure. The fenders[er fender] is a little two flat. Looks like a REAL early T to me, but someone I know thought it might be a real old Dodge. I will try to get some more pictures.

Speaking of building from scratch. I had heard that Ford was suppose to build a few of the Model Ts for some reason or another was that true. I think i heard it on the radio a year or two ago.

That last one looks like it still has the brake lever on it.

Yup. Both of them still have the lever. Hard to tell if it's a parking brake, or if it's old enough to have a lever for the service brakes.

Look like 1920's Model T frames. At least one of them is around there. Ford did make several model T's for the 100th. Popular Mechanics has a article on their website about it.

Here is the latest purchase!!

Just registered it today.

Obviously, no restoration work needed on that one!! It has the best paint I have ever seen on any car of that age. The engine has better paint than just about any vehicles exterior from that time period. It was a Hershey Car show best of show car the the late 1990's.

Traded on of the other for it with a little cash.

I gotta get rid of that Pontiac!!! I need space in the worst way.
