TITLE: Alabama registration of title in hand.
MILES ON CAR: No odometer on Model T's, o we don't know.
WHY AM I SELLING THE CAR? I bought it to resell, 'm a 69 year old retired auto mechanics instructor. I buy and sell cars that are nice and a good deal to make a few bucks.
HOW ABOUT RUST IN THE CAR? I see no rust bubbles in the paint and the under side is very solid. I see a little rusty color metal on the under side, ut no issues. I did not paint the under side, uys think something may be covered up if they see fresh paint.
HOW IS THE PAINT? I consider it upper end drive and enjoy paint. The shine is very nice, see no dents or dings and the body panels are not wavy. I did buy some touch up paint and touched up some chips, t was after my pictures.
HOW IS THE INTERIOR: Nice interior with no wear.
HOW IS THE CONVERTIBLE TOP? Good, see no holes or ripps.
HOW IS THE GLASS? Windshield is clear and it opens easy.
HOW IS THE ENGINE? It sounds good to me. I cleaned the carburater after the pictures, t was dripping gas.
IS THE CAR STILL 6 VOLTS? Yes, t is positive ground 6 volt with a almost new Exide battery. A switch has been added inline with the generator cutout relay. They are bad about sticking and burning the generator up, he switch is a good thing.
HOW IS THE TRANSMISSION? Model T transmissions are a strang animal. It seems to be working correctly. I have never owned a T before, o I don't have any thing to compare it to.
HOW ARE THE TIRES? No real tread wear and I see no signs of drying cracks.
HORN WORKS! HEADLIGHTS WORK!
TAIL LIGHT WORKS!
WIND SHIELD WIPER WORKS! It is a single that you work by hand.
NO TRUNK LOCK!
WARING! WARNING! WARNING!
Model T Fords are different to drive, hey can be hard to operate. They have 3 foot pedals: LEFT PEDAL marked C is not realy a clutch, ashed all the way down is low gear, n the center it is neutral, p is hight gear. CENTER PEDAL marked R is for reverse, ll the way in is for reverse. RIGHT PEDAL marked B is the brake. THE LEVER TO THE LEFT OF THE DRIVERhas 3 positions, ulled backis neutral and parking brake,center is neutral, orward isfor drive gears. The lever on the left of the column is spark timing, he lover on the right of the column is for trottle (no foot trottle). The knob on the right under the dash is choke and mixture control.I have a problem withtheleft pedal marked C, want to operate it like a clutch and push it all the way in. Ican tell you in theory how things work, ut am not good atdoing them. This is the first regular ModelT I have owned and have no desire to get good at operating it.
