First Start for 1923 Model T barn car
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.
