1911 Scott and Model T photo's

Recommended Posts

It looks to me like Model A front and rear axles moved closer together than normal and without a frame.Is the bidy just mounted directly on the springs? I don't understand the engine but it looks like a hand crank in the back. It looks dangerous if it's even operational.

The "Scott" is mostly Model A Ford.....I don't know what that (what looks to be a) one cylinder engine is from.

We have no idea how much money is involved, so how can we tell if you overpaid for Model A Ford parts. The Model T Ford tail light looks ok.

The engine in the 1911 Scott looks to be the engine from a 32 volt Delco Lighting plant.

I agree. I have a bit newer Delco light plant at home in the garage that looks very similar. Almost certainly this engine is from a light plant. The cast in fins on the flywheel are a giveaway. It seems to have been converted to water cooling.

I paid 2 thousand 5 hundred dollars for the Scott/Ford. I am still working out the details for the Model T.

Yup, Definetly a Delco light plant engine. 1920's -30's I've worked on, been around, and moved more than my share. In my Honest Opinion, there isn't a part on that back yard built vehicle that is 1911. The wheels look like 21 inch which would make them 28-29 Model A Ford. Don't have it Judged at a car show as an orignal brass era car, you will be picked apart. It may make a fun parade vehicle. Maybe you can get the local Mayor to ride with you on Memorial day. If you paid a great deal for it, I would say that you have been misslead as to what it really is. Dandy Dave!

IMHO, you paid enough. Post some photos of the model T's before you buy to be sure you are getting a "real Model T".

$2500. I'll go out on a limb here and say that you over paid for the "Scott". The Model A parts might be worth a few dollars. Suspension and axles are still pretty abundant and don't bring a lot. The rest, who knows? You could fix it up and use it as a parade car, but, as is, it's yard art

The 26-27 Tudor looks pretty decent. I'd use the bogus "Scott" as a bit of leverage to try to get a better deal on the Ford
