Dear Friends: Please see Ebay auction: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1920-<wbr>Model-T-Ford-Speedster-<wbr>Aftermarket-Body-Olds-3-Port-<wbr>Head-Brass-/261188064452

I have decided to put up my #1 project for sale. More photos available, just ask. I pieced together an AMAZING Model T speedster project, with authentic early 1920s parts. The body is the ONLY ONE KNOWN , circa 1923, Equipto Line body, made by the Aurora Equipment Co. of Aurora Illinois. This company first built bodies for Henry Ford around 1910, then cycle car attachments for motorcycles. In the teens and 1920s they built racey bodies for Ford Model Ts. Around 1930 they switched to building metal shelving and cabinets and are still in business. Please click on this link for more history, which I helped Coachbuilt write:

The body is all original and super solid and complete, no rust ever, minus top irons, which I would not use any way. These racy lines don't need a top! Seats are out of a circa 1920 ice cream parlor, and fit perfectly. Cast iron backs and maple bottoms. Just needs a low racy windshield glass to mount on those amazing tilted windshield posts! Head is a 1921-23 Olds 3 port head, model 43A, which has been magnafluxed and tanked. Looks superb! Includes rocker arms, valves, springs, etc. These heads in the late 1920s and 1930s and on the salt flats on the 1940s were used as an overhead valve setup on Model T Ford blocks. Known as a poor mans Rajo! MANY records for 3 decades were set with these. Please see this Jern Thunderbolt website - http://www.jernthunderbolt.<wbr>com/ - for all the parts needed for this conversion to mount this head on a Model T block. My plan was to mount these items on a Model T wire wheeled chassis, with a Miller or Winfield carb, and other speed equipment. This killer racer body with a very low cut windshield will be one of the most beautiful around. Plus you will have the only one! Lots of photos available of all items, just ask. Will also crate and ship for costs, and/or help arrange transport. We will sell the body with its seats separately for $5,500 and/or the Olds 3 port head separately for $1,400. If you collect Duesenberg, Dreyer, Hillegass, race, racer, racing, vintage, antique, old, midget, sprint, Indy, high compression head stuff, this project is for you! Reserve is $6,900.
