    So I am out on a walk with my kids today around one of the old highways in our area when I spot what I think is an old car way down over the bank. I climb down and find what I think is a Model A Roadster in quite good condition considering the age. My question is does any one have a photo of one of these from the side or rear so I can be more certain of what this is. ThanksJ

    If it is a stock model A they only bring about 10K fully restored around these parts. If it is a street rod then it could bring as much as 40K-50K. Like everyone said, get some pics. Ford made model A sedans, coupes, trucks, roadsters, and cabriolets. The basic difference between the roadster and cabriolet is the fact that the roadsters do not have side windows in the doors.

    Well wish me luck! The kids are on spring break so we are all going down to try and get this car winched up and home. I was looking on ebay and they are getting a pretty penny for these in worse shape. J

    Not to be a downer but, did anyone consider the legal aspect of this? What if the car was stolen or something? You could have some serious issues with the local authorities.:(

    Otherwise, good luck.:laugh:

    Here's the pics of the car we drug home. It was a convertable and there are two tags on the firewall, one is un-readable the other reads like this

    BODY NUMBER
    138-525
    BRIGGS MFG. CO. DETROIT MICH.

    So what do you guys think this could be? Thanks

    also get some more pics of the frame, especially the rearmost part. If that is a model A I'd say you could get 400-700 for that stuff

    Crappy pic of a crappy fender, dont know if it will help or not. I will get some pics of the frame tomorrow. On ebay they are selling a replica model a frame identical to the one under this car.
