Sophia Renken's red 1923 T roadster

Post by autoneer » Thu Aug 29, 2019 2:39 pm

The family would like to see her T go to a loving new home, as none of them know how to start it, much less drive it. Last week I started and drove her T for the first time in months. It is obviously balanced, it runs and drives smoothly and very strong. It has a Ruxstell, an original Bosch front plate distributor and Rocky Mtn Brakes. It also suffers from a few other improvements, which can be easily remedied over a weekend with a trash can. It has a fuel pump, an alternator, an oil pump, a waterpump, a Model A carb and intake manifold, but still has its T exhaust manifold, and a hokey exhaust system with a modern oval muffler. the only benefit of the latter seems to be that it is a little quieter, but I am sure the car came to her this way. Body and fenders are straight, paint is older, ok for a driver, upholstery and top are older and intact, no rips or tears. The family is asking $10K for it, BUT are open to all offers. Brett's cell phone is 817-733-3543. I have tried to figure out how to add a couple photos below, but in case that did not work, email me back and I will send them to you. I would think in the $8K range +/- would be a good buy for a great driving car that just needs a little cleaning up. Best, Jeff

I can verify this car is very fast. Sophie was always out in front when we were touring.

We were also very good friends and toured many times together.

Sophia was a member of the Riverside/Corona MTFCA Chapter. I followed her on the I 215 freeway in Riverside Ca. once when she was going 65 MPH. That car halls assss. Nobody in the club could keep up with her. Don

The deleted posts had nothing to do with the sale.

There is a contact name and phone number posted.

If you have a serious interest - you can make a call.

...some people are like Slinkies....they're generally useless but fun to watch when you push them down the stairs.
