Dan Richenbergs, this is a recreation (with a couple liberties) of one he built/owned in the early sixties, painted in Jim Fletts shop.

Jim Flett! I Wonder if that is the same Jim  Flett that took me for a fast ride 8nto his big block T bucket at a car show in Burlington On? 1970,s
That would be the one! I've seen that car in storage myself as well.
Total time capsule. :) Jim should bring it out and show it sometime.
How about bringing it out to drive. ;D

Well, that's not a bad idea either.

I'd like to see it up close for sure.

Realistically, I can understand why he might be reluctant to drive it, it still has the same tires on it for one thing. He has a BUNCH of cars, several of which he drives the hell out of, but the T really is a time capsule. You really gotta see it in its current setting, its jaw dropping, just sitting there in the basement shop under the florescent lights, with a light coating of dust on it. Laying eyes on it for the first time, you kind of get the idea how Howard Carter must have felt when he first knocked the hole in the wall of Tutenkamens tomb. ;D Its a bit surreal, you kind of feel like it would be wrong to even disturb the dust on it!
