  • Weight of a 31 Deluxe Roadster with 1 spare?

    The red book has the weight listed as 2,150 lbs. But it doesn't say if it had 1 or 2 spares, or trunk.

    Do you know if that is gross or net weight?

    Has anyone ever put a Deluxe Roadster on a scale and actually weighed it?

        It's a little more that one without a spare, and a little less than one with 2 spares. (give or take 40#)

          OK, so that pretty much answers the question.

          2,155 plus water 25lbs, and gas 69lbs, trunk 40lbs, for a total of 2,289.

          I will also weigh all the junk in the trunk and under the seat.

          Thanks I needed that for towing.

            31 Roadster barn find value
            by Flathead
            Any thoughts on the value of a 31 Deluxe Roadster barn find unrestored and worn out. Motor seized and cracked, car is complete, fairly solid, dented and torn fenders, has old paint on most of it, top canvas and interior are trash I do not have pictures. A friend is trying to buy it and needs an idea of what to offer. Thanks for any help.

            Who make the best 31 Deluxe Roadster windshields?

            Would you go to the typical suppliers or go to a local glass shop?

            1931 Deluxe roadster rear bumper
            by greenhornet
            Probably the most confusing item I seem to have on my '31 Deluxe roadster is the rear bumper.When I first got the car in late August after posting a picture or two on another site I was told the split rear bumpers were incorrect and showed it was a typical non sidemount roadster that was converted from rear spare and bumpers were not correct for the car which has the twin sidemounts now. I never knew...

            1930 Roadster door hinges
            by Jeff/Illinois
            Seems like I read once that you can spot the difference between a '30-'31 Standard Roadster body and a Deluxe body by the number of screws in the hinge mounting. A Standard Roadster has two screws where a Deluxe has three?? Is this correct??

            I loaned my JSG to a friend and he is away from home until Spring, or I'd run over to his house and see if I could look it up.

            1931 Dealership Salesman's Book
            by Tom Wesenberg
            This would be a nice book to own, but the starting bid is already out of my league. Some years back at least a couple different years of these books were reproduced, but they are rare, and sell high. I have one for 1929 that I bought many years ago.

            Picture of my newly acquired 1931 roadster
            by greenhornet
            This is what I call the Green Hornet,1931 roadster.It is an older restoration I guess you would call it that probably from the late fifties to early sixties. I don't think the body has ever been off the frame and it is pretty solid except the floor in rumble area was replaced with really some good sheet metal shop work.I doubt replacement panels were available at the time and I doubt I will change...

            Inherited a 1926 Roadster, need some help
            by MontanaRed
            Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and frankly new to model t's but I was fortunate to inherit what I believe to be a 1926 roadster. I have checked the serial number on the engine and its seems to match what I was told. It also appears to have a Ruckstell rear end. I am excited to get it working order. I am looking forward to learning more from you all and this will be my first ever project. One area...

            Late 1929 thru EOP Coupe/Roadster with trunk...
            by Steve Plucker
            Does anyone have an ORIGINAL, UNMOLESTED late 1929 to EOP Coupe/Roadster with a trunk that still has the original texture of the "Sprayed Body Deadener" that was sprayed on the Quarter Panel?

            I would like a photo of this for an article I am doing.
