It's either a 1928-29 Model A Ford roadster, or a modern replica called a Shay.

The Long Run

I just completed my longest single vehicle transport to the furthest Northwest point I have visited in the lower (48) states.

I drove 1000 miles from Florida to Pennsylvania to pick up from renowned steam car restorer- Alan Kelso.

This is his last steam car restoration & the third Stanley Steam Mountain Wagon he restored.

To End Out The Year

Posted: Fri Jan 04, 2019 2:44 am
by Freighter Jim
To End Out 2018 ......

I got to lay my hands on the rarest vehicle I will ever transport ....

After (8) months of discussion - this historically significant Early Letter Ford started a remarkable journey .... :idea:

Hopefully - later this year - this 1904 Ford Model B will fire up it's engine and God Willing - drive again.

This - is Ford Model B Engine/Serial # 52 which is actually titled as Engine/Serial # 51.

It is documented as being the only unrestored largely original Ford Model B known to exist.
