You are looking at a 1923 Model T Roadster. I built the car myself based upon the question "if my Grandfather had built a hot rod after WWII, what would it look like?”

My Grandfather "Red" was a Ford master mechanic who loved model T Fords and had an unusual sweet spot in his heart for the Stove Bolt Chevy 6.

The body is an all steel 1923 Ford Model T.It is a touring car that has been shortened by removing the rear doors and welding the halves together.The rear panel of the body was widened about 11”.The body is longer and wider than a stock roadster.I am 6' tall and I fit quite comfortably. The entire body was rebuilt replacing all the wood with square steel tubing.The car has a steel floor with access panels in the floor for servicing the transmission, brake master cylinder and the battery.The right-hand door even opens (the left ones never did open).The paint is flat black paint not primer.

The interior is black marine vinyl with a ribbed rubber floor mat.The seats are reworked movie theater seats.The seat belts are military surplus aircraft seat belts. The dash is a full custom piece with Stewart Warner Wings Gauges.The metal tag on the dash is a reproduction of a timing association meet tag.It is stamped as if my Grandfather drove the car at El Mirage in 1948.

The engine is a 216 Chevy with a shaved head, insert rod bearings, aluminum pistons and a vintage Edmunds Custom twin carb intake and a pair of Carter YF carburetors. The exhaust manifold is a factory Chevy part that has been split the old-school way to make dual exhaust.I estimate the engine produces about 160 HP.The transmission is a T-5 from a Chevy S-10 truck.

The exhaust is a full custom 2" stainless steel side pipe arrangement.Each pipe has baffles making it sound very respectable.Just loud enough that you know it is a hot rod but not loud enough to alert law enforcement.

The frame is 2x3 .120 wall steel tubing.With lots of custom bracketry on it.I love speed holes and I put them anywhere that I can.

The axles and wishbones are from a 1937 Ford truck.The brakes are '40 Ford hydraulics, the Wire Wheels are 35 Ford wires.Tires are Coker Excelsior Stall Sport Radials with lots of tread.

The electrical system is 12 volts with a Power Gen alternator, halogen headlights with turn signals mounted inside the 34 Ford Commercial headlamps on the reflectors.The tail lights are 38 Chevy the third brake light is Model A Ford.It has a cloth covered wiring harness from American Auto Wire.

The basket was custom built for carrying the chairs cooler and cleaning supplies to shows.

I would like to keep my drag plate, license plate and the insurance toper as it belonged to my Grandfather.

I have had an awful lot of fun with this car and taken many awards with it at local shows.I hate to sell her but I have too many toys and something must go.

I would like to have the car picked up within one week of the auction close.If you need to extend this please make arrangements before bidding.

I am not an e-bay dealer.I do not earn a living selling on e-bay.However, I have sold several classic cars and bikes over the years.I have a 100% satisfaction rating and I try very hard to be sure my descriptions are honest and truthful.I treat everyone the way I would like to be treated so please bid with confidence.

If you have any further questions please ask and I will get you an answer as soon as I can.

Thanks for looking and good luck!
