I have a 1921 Ford Model T truck I'd like to sell but I'm unsure of it's value....any ideas?
I"m not a mechanic, so I'm not sure of all the details. I know it's been setting for a couple of years and the carberator needs cleaned ( and/or repaired...not sure). I"m sure it might need some tuning up but basically, I believe it to be sound. I know it has an auxillary transmission (Warford....Waford?) and it has Kevlar bands. The tires were good when we parked it but it's been setting for quite a while in the yard, so I'm not sure about them . It always ran good when we drove it, in fact the last trip we took in it we went 750 miles with no problems! It's an open truck...no top , no doors.

Wow, that is an early truck, unfortunately in this market those are tough to sell unless it is something really rare, like the first production unit or a special build... Their is also not allot of comparisons a guy can go on with a 1921. If it is fairly stock (keep in mind I am saying this without visually looking at the product) I would estimate it in the 5,000 to 8,000 dollar range.
NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE TIME AND MONEY IT TAKES TO RESTORE THIS OLD IRON (bears repeating)...

A place called modelthaven restores and sells in Hemmings. They might be helpful.

I have to agree with Spudder on the price he suggested. I bought a 1920 Model T depot hack about 4 years ago at over half that price but it had to be almost completely restored, ie the engine, metal body parts and the cooling system. The wood body was in great shape and needed very little attention. The antique auto market prices are driven on rarity, popularity and that " I must have it thinking" My 20 T should sell between 6 to 10 thousand dollars in todays market unless someone really wants it and is willing to pay any price I demand.

I would say wait until the market gets better than sell it. It will go for alot more because its older, and the market will be better so thats a plus. If you take it to one of those fancy car auctions they have on T.V. There are alot of eager people there, I bet you could sell it for at least $14,000 if you do all those things. Shine it up first though.
