Default looking for a 1911 Ford Model T to restore

I need advice when hunting for an old ford model T to restore. I want one preferably from 1911 sedan version with as many original parts as possible and in towable condition. Its kinda been a dream of mine since I was 12 and when I got to drive my neighbors. What should I be looking for when hunting down an original 1911 Ford Model T? I'm not going to be doing this hunt for a while but I'll be sure to post picks of what I find when I find one that feels right. I just need advice from Ford Model T experts on what I should be looking for.

I'm 99.95% sure none of us were alive anywhere before 1940. Sorry.

I've no idea either. I've entertained the idea of restomodding a later model T as well.


I'd say post some want ads on craigslist and in the local paper. You can also try googling, there's loads of Model T fansites on the internet and they'd be better equipped to point you in that direction.

My rigs:

1985 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci OHV inline six | 4-speed OD manual | 310K | No power brakes | Running 100% - It hasn't driven this good in 15 years!

1984 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci six | granny four | 3.55 rear end | 210K | Brakes shot. Rear drums are doing most of the work. Not fit to drive due to that.
1997 Ford Explorer XLT | 4.0L Vulcan V6 | 5-speed automatic | shift-on-the-fly 4WD | 210,000 miles | Running 95% - Needs brakes on all four corners + bald tires
1989 Ford F150 | 300cid six...again | 5-speed | 4x4 | 160K | Needs brakes done as well. Oi!
