On eBay, for a great buy on this wonderful car:

We're all over Kingman with this car: A very nice Tudor with new upholstery. Still needs a headliner, but we don't spend a lot of time looking up. Paint is excellent. New exterior roof with rain visor. Texas T Distributor with coil on ballast for 12 volt conversion. 12 volt one-wire Texas T alternator. AutoMeter vintage style Temp and Volt gauge. Water pump removed and replaced by EWP80 Davies Craig 12 volt pump on a dash switch with electric fan: Car runs cool anytime of year. Has a battery cutoff to prevent errant battery drain and not for theft since driving a Model T requires unique knowledge, and if it were stolen one pretty much could narrow down the suspect list to geriatrics with GTA rap sheets.

You will probably not need the extra engine because the car runs very well currently, and probably will for a long time to come, but this sale includes a rebuilt 1927 short block with new babbits and new Grant .040 over rings; valves set and seated. As well, a newly serviced hogshead transmission with Kevlar bands. The car does not run on magneto but uses the current system of distributor, battery and alternator, so the flywheel has been upgraded to Oil Slingers pushing more oil to the front of the engine through an outside Oiler line: an important change. (It doesn't hurt to have an extra engine stored for a Model T saving you the time of rebuilding the current engine should it fail - chasing down parts, babbitting the rods and crank, and so on.) This extra engine and transmission is easily worth more than $2500 apart from the car and is NOT for sale separately: it goes with the car.

No seat belts so you are thrown free of the collision in the event of an accident. We usually confine Airbags to the back seat. There is NO RUST on this body and it is 100% steel and original. The windshield wiper is an advanced, infinitely variable vitreous surface de-moisturizer utilizing 1926 cutting edge hand-arm technology.

Four tires and tubes on the road are like new. Spare's mediocre but is OK for driving on short distance, or use the can of fix-a-flat under the seat, although we've not had to do that. Spokes are all tight. Bands are good in transmission: Goes forward, back, and stops as a Model T does. Doors lock as they should and all four window regulators function.

We drive it all over Old Town and elsewhere in Kingman.

If you're interested in seeing the ol' girl, let me know through CL mail, but be forewarned: I will be polite up to a point, but I am not interested in reminiscing, and if I have to say, "Yeah, those were the days" more than twice I will walk away and leave you standing with your Model T crank in hand. If you just want to talk about Model T's go to the Model T club online and there are numerous guys who have nothing better to do in life than to tell you that "...if Henry wanted the car to have an alternator on it he would have put one on it" and other such inanities, remembering that Henry Ford, although a brilliant Capitalist, was a miserable racist and antisemitic. So, it's the equivalent of saying, "If Henry wanted a black man to have more than 3/5th a vote, they'd be allowed to have a full vote." You see?

Are we negotiable on price? To some extent.

Does it come with a warranty? This is a 91 year old automobile. So, No. You ought to know something about internal combustion machinery to own this car. In other words, it's not a good car for Millennials who don't know how to ring a doorbell without their iPhone. Clean title in our names.

Key words: Schlage Yale Kwikset Stanley (Get it?)
