1917 Ford Model T

HIGHLIGHTS: Classic 1917 Ford Model T “Huckster” truck! This iconic Model T escaped being hot-rodded or chopped up! If you're looking to get into an affordable pre-war classic car that retains an original feel, this just might be the car for you!

BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this Model T appears to be in great condition, and this fine automobile had a cosmetic restoration performed within the last three years. Even the large amount of woodwork was nicely refinished!

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: Since this car has had a recent cosmetic restoration, it's no surprise that the paint is in nice condition. There are so many of these cars running around with 30-year-old paint jobs on them, it's quite refreshing to see one with a recent paint job that looks this nice!

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The black vinyl seat is a great match to the exterior green, and really follows through on the original-style look. The interior is in nice, well-kept condition and has clearly seen minimal use since the cosmetic restoration took place. Like the exterior and structural wood, the interior wood is in nice condition and appears to have been refinished.

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: The engine is exactly what you expect to see in an original-style Model T. It runs like a Model T, sounds like a Model T, and believe it or not, this thing drives like a Model T! The engine has had an accessory water pump added. Other recent mechanical repairs include new wiring, all four new tires, new spark plugs, and a rebuilt starter.

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: Those familiar with pre-war cars, especially Model As and Ts, know it can be a challenge to title these cars properly. Fortunately, this Model T has a clean title with the VIN matching to the engine number, which serves as the VIN for the Ts.

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: No matter what you do, owning a Model T will be labor-intensive. If you don't like the idea of frequent maintenance, or having to keep track of necessary adjustments and services, this may not be the car for you.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? Overall, this car is working as expected, however it does need an ignition cylinder installed.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? This car is perfect for someone wanting to own a Model T with a unique look, and the hard work already done. If you're looking for something to putter around in on the weekends and get your fill of classic car maintenance, this Model T would be a great choice!

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.

All advertised prices exclude local, state, government fees and taxes and dealer documentation fee. Pricing is subject to change without notice. A dealer documentation fee of $250 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale.

Our preferred and most secure form of payment is a bank wire transfer. We can accept checks, but note that any form of a check will have a minimum hold of 10 business days. This includes cashier's checks, certified checks, or bank checks of any kind. For cash received in the amount of $10,000 or more, we will complete an IRS Form 8300.
