I have no clue as to the value of this old Ford and have tried other sources to find out with no luck . The owner wants me to come up with a price and I want to be fair to this guy . I really don't know if its worth a lot or a little all I know is I want it in my front yard under my big tree . It looks pretty complete with only surface rust but I didn't look to see if the engine is in it . I hope not . Any guess's are appreciated and I know its hard to say with just a couple of pictures. Happy new year ,Thanks Peter

I have restored several Model T's over the years. Just looking at the pictures, the body mat be the only thing usable. Without the engine maybe $400. These are not that valuable even when restored. Like you said ,just yard art.


Anything oil and gas.

That old girl has a great look. I know many guys that would want it for the body to be used on a traditional hot rod build and would gladly pay $400.00 for it. Maybe even more?

Rare to see one unmolested like that, looks like it hasn't been touched since it was parked. License plate, spare tire carrier, window frame, radiator, headlights, etc. You'll have some expense getting it out of there. Easily worth 400.

I'd give 600 for it ... just my 2 cents. Although if there's a bit of expense to get it home I would definitely have to consider that as well .

Thanks I really love it and with every ones help with learning the value I will try to purchase it . I see it under my big tree with one of my rusty Visible pumps next to it . Hopefully it will roll out of there . However By the way how much does something like this weigh ? I mean can 4 or 5 burly guys carry it out if I have to or am I going to have to hire a crane if it doesn't roll ?

I don't think that is going too roll out of there
that terrain looks a little ruff for that
possibly a back-hoe & a flat bed truck
keep us posted with pictures of this task .. ... cool

Henry's Model T (Tin Lizzy) is a hefty lady. Likely weighs between 1,200 to 1,500 pounds, depending on the model year, and if there's an engine and tranny in it, or not. Sooo....just how "burly" are these four or five guys?!! Best of luck with your possible purchase, Peter. John

Peter, that would look great as yard art. Get them lights wired up once you get it home.

Good luck and I really hope you get it. So many times things like this end up in the scrap yard and that would be a sin. Please keep us posted on your progress.
