The paint is 21 cots of hand rubbed lacquer over 3 coats of heavy primer over two coats of etching primer. one flaw in lower right panel of bot tail (not a major issue).
there are two brass rear view mirrors and a center mount rear mirror. There is a floor mounted battery kill switch, the car does not have a key. The headlight rims are brass and it has a unique 'circuit breaker' cutoff.
These bodies were made by a company in Salem Oregon in the 80's and it has been reported on the Model T Ford Forum (search MTFCA Armadillo) that only 17 were produced. This is number 14 as indicated by the number engraved on the bottom of the gas cap as was the manufacturers practice. I know of 6 more of these bodies that still exist most are still here in the North West.
This car is a real treat to drive, it starts instantly. purrs as a new car, and the shifting between low and high range is smoother than any Model T I have ever driven.
This car is not just a great driver, but a true investment as few cars are.
My warranty: I am so convinced of the satisfaction you will feel with this car, that if you buy it and live within 200 miles of Eugene and are not happy with the car, I will not only buy it back, I'll come and get it!
I will post more information as I recall.
