Description for Ford Model T 1923

Hello all. I've decided to put my '23 T Bucket up for sale. This car was originally built just North of me in Washington state in the late Sixties or early Seventies. Between a demanding work schedule and being a "later in life" Dad, just don't drive it as much as I use to. Although, n the day these pictures were taken, managed to sneak a trip down to the Coast in (about a 150 mile round trip). I probably should have at least taken the time to clean the dead bugs off the front of the radiator before I shot the pics! I really wouldn't be afraid to drive this car anywhere. I've gone through a few measures to make it mechanically sound without disturbing the integrity of the era it was built in. The Dynaflow tranny that was backing the Buick 322" Nailhead went out on me about ten years ago. I replaced it with a Turbo 350 with a B&M torque converter. I used a Bendtsen's adapter to mate it up to the Nailhead. It has an old Mallory distributor and coil on it. I just had the distributor gone through with new points and curve set up on it. The wheels on it are American Racing Magnesium wheels. The fronts are 15"x4" with a 5 on 5.5" bolt pattern (early Ford) and the rears are 16"x10" with a 5 on 5" bolt pattern (early Olds). I also had Dutchman make me a set of axles for the Ford 8" rear. The adapters that were on it to make the 5 on 5" bolt pattern fit the stock axles were a little too sketchy for my taste. The gears in the rear are pretty tall. I would say they're in the 3.00:1 range. I never have hooked the speedo back up after I did the transmission change. I've tried to cover all the angles with my photos. If you have any questions, ive me a shout and I'll get back to you with an answer. It's just a neat old hot rod. I love the dropped axle and chrome backing plates. The firewall is nicely done and sanitary and the striping on the body is subtle and I think pretty cool. It has a full host of Stewart Warner gauges in the dash. The fella I bought it from, hought the body was manufactured by Kellison. I'm not sure how to tell if that is indeed true. At one time, t must have had a top on it. I can see evidence of some touch-up where it once attached. I also had the radiator re-cored and converted to be able to run a pressurized cap. It's been crazy hot all Summer in Oregon and it never heated up on me even once. The 322 in it is pretty mild and runs great. All of the brakes were gone through a few years ago and even the master cylinder was rebuilt. The car is titled as a 1923 Ford (clear Oregon title in my name) and it has a Washington State assigned VIN stamped into the frame. I've sold a few items on eBay in the past and have a 100% feedback rating. I always give honest descriptions. Instead of me rambling on, t's probably best to just look at the pics. They do a better job of selling the car compared to my lackluster wordsmith skills! I want whoever ends up with this thing to enjoy it as much as I have. I'm starting the bidding off at a what I think is a reasonable number and letting it go from there. This car really is a great time capsule. This roadster runs, rives, nd stops great. Thank you for your time.
