      The Speedster is just that much more beautiful, after the bowl Game.

      I think Rod was mistaken when he said the kits were made in the 1960's. They were sold out of the Model T magazine circa 1978-1982 or so . There is one "prototype" body that is different and has raised screws and bears a "Seaman" coach body tag that I believe has nothing to do withthe actual body . They were made by "B-ARD" manufacturing through Beckers Model T parts and some other sellers. They were from Salem , Oregon. The numbers made has been said to be as high as 32 I have heard . Others said 16 kits were made . Mine is #2: the manufacturing numbers are cast into the bottom of the gas cap . Mine was one of two used in the sales pictures, the other being a yellow one with wood spoke wheels. Mine was built by the manufacturer for a friend i was told by the second owner who owned it 17 years before I bought it from him.

      Funny ..looks like tye same car for sale and he says 60s, then references the model t thread where they said 80s. Looks like your part of the discussion. Old post..

      Yeah, old post , but there are so few of these cars and only one that is a "first build " or prototype, and no one has ever come up withthe actual date of the "first" body that was made with non-recessed screw heads. Can't say it's 60's, because one person reads it and next thing you know its "Fact ". Only reason I comment on a thread this old is when you do a search for "B-ARD" "Armadillo Speedster" "Salem Oregon" you wont get a whole lot of hits .....not like typing in VW Beetle".....lol. The fact that that original? body that was sold with no chassis had a tag that said "Seaman Body Corp." (1919-1936 - Seaman Body Div. of Nash-Kelvinator - Milwaukee, Wisconsin) further muddied the waters when I first started trying to figure out where the heck my #2 car came from . Perhaps the original was a 1960's build, it defiinitly could be with it's split front seat cushion, decals that appear on it ..... I for one would love to know. The fact that there are only 16-30 that were supposedly sold makes them a bit unique in the Model T Speedster world. I bet there are days Rod wishes he did not sell his : Probably not too often, he has had some really meat Model T's and other cars to boot !
