1926 Essex Touring 6 cylinder, 3 speed Restoration started with re-wooding of the Body which is from the dry area of central Oregon. It needs sheet metal, interior and engine etc. restoration, currently not in running condition needs battery and electric fuel pump installed. Last driven about 8 years ago. Engine is hard to start and smokes, compression was about 50-60 pounds, otherwise drove well. Very little rust on body or frame except for body rear panel and bottom of driver’s door. Doors lift off and a photo is included showing door skin edges but rear doors skins will need lots of straightening. An electric fuel pump is used and a new 6vt one is included in box. Car has a Oklahoma title using frame serial number. Top bows that came with it may be 23 Ford T, Hood appears to be different from online photos unknown if the hood and latches are from an earlier year or those used by this coach builder. The rear fenders from the 24 are the same and in better condition than the ones on the car. A untitled disassembled 1924 Touring parts car is included no wood and only about 70 percent of sheet metal. It is rusty with a chassis, radiator, hood, cowl, 3 doors skins and most of the rear section. The two touring cars appear to have been built by different coach builders and rear door and front fenders do not interchange. There are additional parts such as, engine, transmission, 20 and 21 inch wheels, radiator. The 26 is sold in not running condition as is where is, located in eastern Oklahoma. I would suggest a covered trailer to transport car and parts.
