From the Archive: Model T hot rod

This is a Model T I saw in front of a radiator shop about six years ago.

It had a piece of steel welded in for a roof, a small block Chevy motor with an automatic transmission, the interior consisted of the steering wheel, some house carpet, and a bench seat from a small pickup truck, the seam from the (approximately) 4-inch chop is clearly visible. This hot rod was for sale, after seeing it sit for several months I contacted the owner and learned that he was asking ONLY $13,000. Somebody eventually did buy this Rustoleum-covered deathtrap, and the dope chopped Model A two-door sedan in the background. I hope they had some money left for seat belts.
