    Certainly a very neat creation. A 1915 T, nope, not really.

    Lightly modified, they must be kidding. I suspected as much when I looked carefully at the wheels. Nope, they did not exist in 1915. Wires resembling thses came in 1926. But, these are not T wheelsa, they are 28″ A wheels.

    My first car circa 1946 was q 23 T. I disected it to the last bolt. In 1958 I built a replica sorta speedster.
    Both T powered, albeit mdified a bit.

    This car reaemble a T of the era, but that is it.

    Kinda like my 83 Jaguar, powered by 1994 Cadillac !!

    Good work, but call it what it kis!

    While the car is great, “Original” and “Restored” do not belong in the same description.
