It is always interesting to see what value other people place on items as they bid in hopes of securing an item on eBay. This monthly article will present a few items of interest, give you a short description of each and let you know what someone paid to take the item home.
|A most unusual Ford Model T and/or Model A "Airplane Radiator Cap" had nine bids and reached $280. The item was described by the seller as being in original, untouched condition. The propeller and wheels were still intact and working. Personally, I view this item as being more of a collectible item for display as opposed to an accessory to use on my car. Not sure how long it would remain on someone's Model T before it disappeared.||The unknown reserve was not met.|
|An original Ford Motor Company brass fire extinguisher with mounting bracket was offered in July by a seller in Orange Co., California. The item measured 13" in length. The seller did not know the age of the item, and it had not been tested. It was sold "as is" with a minor dent on the bottom.||Despite these conditions, the extinguisher garnered 15 bids and sold for $300.|
|This is a 1:35 scale model kit for a 1917 World War I Model T Machine Gun Scout Car. The kit was made in Poland for a distributor in England, and offered on ebay by a seller in Eastern Tennessee. The graphics on the kit box are wonderful, and offer a historical viewpoint of another use of the Model T that most of us never knew existed. I wonder if one could find out how many of these Ford Model T Scout Cars were produced for World War I, and what other types of military vehicles were produced by Ford during World War I?||The owner offered it for sale with a starting bid of $14.99, but the item closed with no bids made.|
|This Boyco water can, measuring 11 5/8" x 7 5/8" x 9 1/4" was offered on ebay during July.||Despite having some holes and rust areas, the water can garnered 7 bids and sold for $40.00.|
|Now this is a real "project" vehicle being offered as a Buy It Now on ebay out of Pine River, Minnesota. The seller suggests that it may be a 1923 Ford Model T. Yes, it does still have its engine. That truck bed sure looks like my grandfather's old wagon that he used on his farm in the 1950s. Ross, you are probably already salivating to get your hands on this "project."||The Buy It Now price is $1875 and the sale is still pending.|
