What's it worth?

Hi,
I'm new to hot rodding and want to get my feet wet without sinking.
Looking at a 27 T roadster 350/350 older hot rod.
Needs all chrome re done, and paint isn't exciting, but it is all there and actually looks pretty decent.
It is said to be running and driving well.
9" rear, drop front axle, and all steel.
nice upholstery, full fendered.
I know i could spend a lot in the redo of things that are not perfect.
But, it's pretty decent.
Your comments would be appreciated.
How many different models of T did they make in 27?
Is the roadster the popular one? Or of more value?
Thanks, fellow Hot Rod enthusists.
Sincerely,
J M

A full fendered 26-27 T is a cool car. If it is well built without an bad engineering then I think it would be a good first rod. If you can, find someone knowledgable to peruse the welding and especially the steering and suspension to be sure it's safe. Someone familiar with rods can tell you if it is going to bump steer bad ect. It's really hard to say what it's worth with out pictures and a more detailed description. How much are they asking?

There was only one Model made in 1927 but there were six different body styles (roadster, touring, pickup truck, sedan and TT truck). You didn't mention what type of frame it is sitting on. I hope not a stock T or even a boxed frame. Hope this helps.

27 T Roadster

In Reply to comments on 27 T Roadster,
They are asking $14000.00 Firm
I finally sat in it the other day.
Takes some getting used to huh?
It's so small, and no leg room!
You gotta love it!
I'm 6 feet, will it work for me?
What do you think?

Makes all the difference in the world? Yeah, that's a given, and my point!
Anyone can buy one for nothing and be safe.
But, spending real money, as an investment, quite another thing!
That's why i was shopping for some expertise.
They are at $14,000.00 firm
Thanks, I think,
J M

IMHO it would have to be in pretty damn nice condition for $14000 It all depends on how much the particular car is worth to you. Done a quick look on ebay and found these:
1923 T-bucket
1936 T-sedan
Cant say too much without knowing which body style and seeing pics though.

14 grand for a T is steep. I'll have mine at the local car show tomorrow with a $5500 price tag on it, I've dropped $700 off in the last year, Maybe I'll get a look or two, there's not a great resale market for the t's, they are SMALL. (see avatar) Mines nothing fancy but in today's world it would cost more to build than I'm asking.

Hi Thread,
Thanks for the reply
I looked at the ones on e bay. The one is a glass body, and yes nice, but not really the real MccCoy. The other isn't a hot rod, but a stocker, and i would really rather have that body style, but only in a hot rod.
But, thanks for the help.
