Question For Classic Car Enthusiasts

Postby captainduckhead » Tue Jan 06, 2009 1:59 pm

I will be selling a BEAUTIFUL 1918 Ford Model T Huckster. It has wood panelled sides, it runs like a champion, it has original power, but has been repainted. Can anyone give me an idea of what it's worth?

any mods to it besides new paint? anything done to the drive line? i'm not familiar with early century cars but i'd say $80,000 or more, someone correct me if i'm wrong though.

you got pictures?

Thanks for the reply. It needs a new gas line, the line leaks a little bit where it goes into the tank. I will have pictures within the next day or 2. It is in top shelf condition. The wood has been restored, tires, rims, drive train are perfec. It has the original flathead 4 cylinder engine and it runs beautifully. The only problem is, it has been repainted, white. It was used in parades

sounds nifty, yeah when you get pictures up i can give you a better idea. the fact that it is a classic, and drivable, and looks to be in good shape increase the value. i would find a specialist that can appraise it if it were me. as for the line, throw a 25 cent hose clamp on it.

Without seeing picks I couldn't give you and exact quote but Model T's don't run quite that high, you really only looking at 25k for mint condition.

25K sounds a little more in line with what I was thinking.

Only 25K? For being that old and completly drivable and near original i would have guessed a hell of a lot more.

There are '60s corvettes not near as rare for 80K

My grandfather restores old Fords, I'll give him a call after work and see what he says. He mainly does Model A's but i know he's done some work on T models too. I know there's a big difference in price between the ones that are show quality and the ones that are not. My granpa's are all restored to original quality which looks really good but he wants to drive them and not show them so the price is alot less. Whenever he sells his it's usually well under 25K.
