This '23 Model T had not been run in decades. Pulled the engine and gave it a full rebuild, then re- installed and overhauled the chassis with mostly used Model T parts. The car will be kept in the original rusty condition, as pulled from the barn......but she runs now!
Last licensed in 1948, Ford Model T's like this were popular with farmers. This was originally a touring car, but the back seat part of the body and the convertible top was tossed, and a homemade wooden bed put on to carry produce to market.

The Model T was manufactured between 1908 and 1927, and was know by various
names including Tin Lizzie, Flivver, T‑Model Ford, or just 'T'.
The Model T set 1908 as the historic year that the automobile became
popular. It is generally regarded as the first affordable automobile, the
car that opened travel to the common middle-class American; some of this
was because of Ford's innovations, including assembly line production
instead of individual hand crafting.
On May 26, 1927, Henry Ford watched the 15 millionth Model T Ford roll off
the assembly line at his factory in Highland Park, Michigan.
First Drive in a 1923 Ford Model T
Just finished overhaul of engine and chassis, and started this Model T for
the first time. Let her idle for 15 minutes to warm up and circulate the
oil around the fabric band linings in the transmission.
Then off on the neighbor hood roads for a shake down run. Video is a bit
shaky too, as its a Model T and one hand held the video camera while the
other was on the steering wheel!

1928 Buick Country Club Coupe 1st Start in 50 Years
My Great Grandfather bought this car in 1929 from the Buick dealer in
Perryman, Md. with only a few hundred miles on it. He paid $900 for it, a
hefty sum considering most new cars at the time were under $400. He was the
last one to hear it run until today. By the way, I could not tell while
looking through the camera if the lights were on or off.
Me and my dad see my dad's old car for the first time in 20 years.
He sold the car over 20+ years ago when he was an alcoholic. Said he
probably would have died in it. This is the first time he saw it since he
sold it over 20+ years ago. The car does look in relative good shape, we
have no idea what has been done with the car over the past 20 years. It
obviously wasn't sitting there for 20 years and nobody claims it to be. Pay
attention, people. 1964 Buick Rivera. 425 Wildcat V8 w/ 427 horsepower.
