Description for Ford Model T 1922

Since we began handling collectible cars and trucks, I have been patiently waiting for a Ford Model T to come through the doors. Stories abound of the “magical” knowledge needed to operate the brakes, throttle, clutch and gears and being one of those people who needs to see an explanation rather than read it, having this 1922 Ford Model T Runabout has been a great personal moment.
The car is the second of two antique Fords we have been asked to sell, the first is the 1928 Model A. Both were bare frame projects finally taken on as part of a bucket list put aside until retirement and were always meant to be driven and enjoyed.
Our Model T was bought in very rough condition, from the images that is no surprise to hear but it was bought in driving order. Everything needed attention, adding to the joy of the two year restoration. Anyone who says these sort of projects are financially sound obviously has not undertaken one. They are done for the sake of accomplishment and sense of completion. More than likely, the parts and materials alone are more than the asking price of the car. Labor is donated, a given. While working on the complete rebuild of the motor, the block was bored .040 over, high compression aluminum pistons were installed along with a “performance” cam. Stainless Steel Valves and Hardened Valve Seats were used to enhance the longevity of the Head. All four Wooden Wheels were rebuilt with the rear Hubs being replaced along with the drive Axles. Two new front Tires were just installed prior to coming to the shop. The body needed extensive work, everything, including the paint and interior were done by Bob and his wife.
The work was completed about ten years ago. OK, the best part, driving the Model T. I had Bob let me video an explanation and it is down under the images on our website. Looked simple, but that was deceiving. Bob parked the car facing the street in case I “misunderstood” his simple and clear explanations. Good thing. Having 1st Gear and Neutral controlled by the left foot was testing. My first panic stop, I depressed the “Clutch” which made the car go forward, not stop. It took a huge mental effort to release the pedal half way to find neutral, about 10 feet worth of too much. The car is a joy to operate. All I could think about was there were people who drove these around the world in the 20’s. Our expectations have certainly changed in one-hundred years.
As with all of our vehicles, we welcome and recommend a mechanical inspection prior to the close of business.

If you do not have at least 10 positive feedbacks, please do not bid without contacting me first or your bid will be cancelled or blocked. We do not discuss reserve amounts unless the vehicle does not sell. This vehicle is available for sale at our retail place of business and we reserve the right to end this sale early if it is sold. Ebay has very strict rules about links to a separate site which we do operate.
We accept collected funds only and for the amount of the sale. A $1000 deposit must be made within two days of the end of the sale through Paypal or other means of collected funds. We offer a 7 day grace period after this Ebay sale closes to inspect the vehicle yourself and if it is not to your liking, a full refund of the deposit will be made. There will be no questions asked, after your inspection at our shop, if you do not like the vehicle.
Payment is due in full after 7 days. The vehicle cannot be picked up until funds have cleared or prior arrangements have been completed. Shipping quotes should be from 97526 Grants Pass, Oregon to where you are. Please, do not use fly by night shippers. We try to offer clean vehicles honestly and to see some loon strapping a car, bike or motor home to an open trailer with bald tires is heart breaking. I can assist the shippers, but that will have to be ordered and paid for by the winning bidder. We cannot accept personal checks. If you have any questions, please e-mail me before bidding and I will do everything I can to answer your questions. Thanks and good luck.
