|I have absolutely no idea what this item is all about, but it must be something useful. Offered out of Riverside, California, was a Model T Ford explosion whistle and valve. Now would someone please explain to me what that is? The item was described as made of brass and aluminum with an iron adapter. All parts were described by the seller as being in very good condition.||There were a few people out there who knew what this item was about because it gained a strong 16 bids before selling for $56.04.|
|A 1914 Ford socket wrench set with 19 pieces was offered out of Columbus, Ohio. The set came in the original wooden box and still had the original paper label on the inside of the box lid. The set was dated with "Patented March 10, 1914."||This item commanded 17 bids and sold for $172.49.|
|A 1915 Ford Model T engine was offered out of Warsaw, Indiana. The serial number was 964854 with a casting date of July 1915. The seller described the engine as turning over freely with no unusual sounds, and the pedals worked freely.||The item had 7 bids and sold for $425.|
|Offered out of Ohio was a set of four NOS vintage Firestone Ford Model T tires; 30 x 3.5 in size. They appeared to have been in storage for quite some time and needed to be cleaned. There was some cracking of the rubber between the treads from age, but the seller believed the tires had never been used.||The tires earned 22 bids before going under the hammer for $251.|
|Saving the best for last this month, these four Ford Model T wood, re-spoked wheels were offered by a seller from Ashley, Ohio. The wheels measured 30 x 3 and 30 x 3.5 in size. The rims and hubs had been sandblasted and then primed. The new spokes were made of shag bark hickory. The wheels had been re-worked by a third generation Amish wheelwright known for his quality workmanship.||These wheels commanded heavy bidding, and the 17th bid won at a cost of $1,700.|
