1917 Ford Model T

S154, WW1 production. Complete, all running and ready to go now. A museum quality specimen. Only the canvas top, upholstery covers, tires and a couple of interior soft panels and some wiring have been replaced (whatever the bugs had chewed on.) This car was found intact in a local Clearfield County Pennsylvania barn, by auto collector and restorer, Don Harter, well known in these parts. He says he knew the family who farmed that property and remembered the story thus; "The old man bought the car used and drove it into the barn, then went in his house and fell over dead, of a heart attack. His wife just pulled a tarp over the car and left it right there. When she became disabled, she sold the car to me years later and I went to work on it and had it running in no time." Harter says that he did not tamper with the original factory hand painted body finish and he only replaced what the vermin and dry rot had destroyed, which wasn't anything not available. Retains original manual windshield wiper, wooden spooked wheels, brass hubs, wide headlights, rims, side and rear oil lamps, windshields, etc. Even has the original Clackson horn (as-OOO-gah) and brass bulb operated air horn. This car has been his winner of many blue ribbons, at car shows hereabouts. It looks like the same model driven by Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, in their great, classic comedy movies. Even retains the original license plates, dated 1917. Well, old Don is getting on in years, so I decided to help him sell some of his cars and I got this one to start. Now, I don't know how to drive, or start one of these front crankers, so if you do, this is the antique car of your dreams. Don says; "Just use regular leaded gas and standard oil and grease and set your carb and throttle levers and you are ready to go." Always garage kept and driven in many parades and local events. Clear title and transferable anywhere, a terrific gift for Grandpa, or display, or your local museum. Sold as is, from Clearfield County Pennsylvania. You, or your auto-moving company can pick it up. 100+ year old antique car, rare investment opportunity, especially in this economy.
