  1. think Paul traded upon his reputation for money, the difference between the real thing and a made up Bearcat was very little after Paul billed you for the work. he was a well known for his knowledge of the STuTZ and yes he could be a very likable fellow.
  2. a very quick way to tell an authentic Bearcat, is wheel base, a real Bearcat is 118 inch and all of the Freehill's fake Bearcats were all 120 inch, as Durospeed stated, "buyer beware" time does tend to hide the sins of the fake...
  3. the 1918 Kissel is pictured at Multnomah Falls, Oregon, just after the Columbia Gorge Hyway was completed and before the Lodge was built.
  4. and don't forget the '34 Ford hood stuck inside the early 20's Dodge coupe
  5. there are 2 that I know of...massive restoration and or custom built, either way about the same money.
  6. Model R is a nicely balanced car to drive with power to keep up the bigger cars. Have enjoy many many great miles in my '06 R
  7. thank you I have been searching all the sites and started now posting want ad for a good to better condition box, condition is far more important than price
  8. looking for a good to better condition 1928/29 Model AA express box, thank you j davis thomas40white@gmail
  9. DAH... it is not about restoring this Model T, but rather enjoying it, as is, maybe get some more of the very fashionable burlap to finish the top and seats, would make a great ride and never ever have to think about scratching the paint or ???? bullet proof enjoyment, and a ton of smiles per miles
  10. after taking a look over on the Model T forums and finding about a half dozen 1914 Tourings, all but one was a restored, (and it is a nearly finished) they ranged in price from the low teens to a high of $18,000.00, and might add none have sold in the last 3 months, so, what would be a fair offer? $7 or 8K be fair, given the market of nice unsold '14's I do think this one is an honest Model T, sadly, Model T's do seem to be a pennies on the dollar investment, but the smiles per mile are priceless
  11. seriously, questioning the authenticity of the car should have been a HUGE red flag and at that very moment, I would have told the prospective buyer, the car was not available to them. IMHO, the problem with expensive restorations of non classic cars, is, once you take them out of the box, they become a used car. sad part, you have spent so much blood and money to restore a car correctly and yet, you do not get the well earned respect for this, can we all say "Rodney Dangerfield", If I may suggest, sell it on contract of a year or less, yes, keep the car until it is paid for, remember who your buyer really is, they are not people who have no problem writing a check for 20K, usually you will get far closer to your asking price, if not your asking price and more than likely, you will be paid in full long before you find a buyer at a greatly discounted price, everyone wants a bargain, and no one ever says, I paid the asking price, also, I might add, the best time to sell, is when someone is asking to buy your car. I will conclude my thoughts, with this, the greatest value in owning a wonderful car like this one, the smiles per mile are priceless...
  12. STuTZ Bearcat wheelbase is 118 inches, and yes it would make a great period raceabout
  13. I called, and was emailed a very large file of photos, looks promising and they are restorable, keep in mind, these are the mid size Buicks...
  14. with all due respect G.A. it is a car chassis, shocks on both ends of the chassis tells me so.
