Anyone Have any clue what this is worth?

It's a model T Frame. I'm thinking about putting it on ebay. A running one is worth like 14,000

Put a couple of bullet holes in it and up the price. :bushtaliban:

that's not restorable, it's only worth what someone is willing to pay for
that fender or the cab, probably a couple hundred at most, if it were more
complete then restoration may have been an option

you could make a hot rod out of it ... but not an original restoration no. I figured it was worth from $650-$1,000 as is

I was using 'restore' semi-ironically. It was pretty subtle. :wink:

I think most Model T restorations are primarily pure fabrication, I doubt there are many original models alive.
But all you need is one hubcap or a dash knob, and you can call it authentic. :laugh:

@OP: I doubt you'll be able to get much for it without a lot of work and waiting. But it might pay off.

Sounds like one of those bogus trend stories. It's not just drugs that the media gets wrong, they have a hard time with statistics.
Unless you have a link to a legit source?

There's a bit of platinum in catalytic converters.

If you steal enough, you've made a lot of money.

:peace:

I know the theft is real- I mean the 'increase'. Read that ABC story. It mentions an increase- but it's just two guys.
Same thing that happens with drug stories; two kids get sick from too much fun, and that's 'an alarming increase in dangerous overdoses'

those two guys arent they only ones in the country that are doing it, if
they were then it would be 'crime wave comes to an end', 10 years ago
having the converter stolen from you car was unheard of so it's
definitely an increase
