Bought the T in Kansas 10 years ago from Model T Haven. Went to pick it up in February in T shirt. Hit a blizzard on the way home in St. Louis. Rebuilt the engine, transmission and rear axle. Put new spokes and tires and did some body work and painting.I have about 5 grand in it total. People have found out I can work on T's and I have as much work as I want. Almost all parts can be bought new.
This is my second T. I rebuilt my first one in 1968 and made the mistake of selling it. It was my first car. This one has a permanent home and the grand kids love to ride around the place in it.

I see a battery on the floorboard, must have another starter besides the crank.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Nope, the battery just provides power to the wooden coils for spark as I hand crank it. 1917 did not have electric starter. After it cranks, you switch over to magneto.
