1920 Ford Model T Roadster Pickup

Offered for your consideration is this 1920 Ford Model T Roadster pickup truck. It may have started its life as a touring car or a turtle deck. This is what I do know:
I bought it last fall and have done much over the past year to make it more period and correct.The top and top irons are new. Neither were present when the car was purchased.The appropriate top straps and hardware were purchased and mounted.I replaced the the dash rail (instrument panel) with a correct metal unit, in lieu of the makeshift wood piece it came with which was incorrect.Radiator has been flushed, oil changed, spark plugs replaced.The exhaust system is all new - manifold, pipe and muffler.It has a new battery.The battery cables and ignition cable are new and correct.The front left fender was re-welded and painted to repair a previous inferior sheet metal rip repair. (No bondo was used and the work was professionally performed.)Two rear lanterns were mounted where none existed before purchase, along with the appropriate rear mounting brackets.An electric horn was installed where none existed before purchase (prefer electric over magneto in the event one needs to use it immediately if the car is not running). A complete, new fuel line has been installed with a shut off valve on either end. It is period correct.All replacement parts came from either Snyder's in Ohio or from salvage yards.It runs on battery or magneto.
Please note in one picture what appears to be a repair under the passenger door and under the imitation door opening on the driver's side. I don't understand the purpose or reason for the repairs. They came with the car. The passenger door will need further examination. It closes, but requires a gentle hand.
I can not attest to how it drives in that I have not had it on the road. It has an Arizona title, which is clear. It starts and runs, but could use the expertise of a more experienced Model T person to have it run smoother and to get it roadworthy. Getting people in to help me do this has been difficult and I'm at the limit of my knowledge base to know what to look for and to do it correctly and safely.
It does come with the hood, which was taken off while performing the fuel line work. The paint looks fairly new. Tires have good tread. The car has had maybe two small oil drips in the time I've had it.
The Pa. license plates come with the car to the buyer who resides in Pa. Otherwise, I will sell them (both) in another auction. They are correct, restored and available for registration under YOM.
I can supply additional pictures, videos, etc. upon request. I will also assist the buyer with pick up/shipping arrangements and answer any questions. I am a buyer too, and will address any concerns or questions to the best of my ability.
This Model T is sold "as is." It shows well. It appears that at one point it had a body off restoration. Underneath is clean and painted. The bed is either oak or ash with a functioning tailgate. Please be mindful that this is a 96 year old vehicle. It is not a show car.
