Greetings ! I found this sad old heap upside down covered with brush and fallen trees on the edge of a meadow on our property here in SE Idaho. I turned it upright and poked around for scattered parts, and was hoping you all might be able to tell me something about it. I am assuming it is a Mod T.

Jeff,

I don't know what it is, but it is not a model T.

Wow! Okay. Thank you, John. Well, I'll just hope someone else might have a guess.

Late 20's Dodge would be my guess.

It being a touring car, It's worth saving, how bad is it rusted?

Doors may be a problem however.

Looks like John is right, if you look close you can see the bead on the inner fender. This is a '26 Dodge.

27 Dodge has the same fender bead, headlights and brackets. I'm not really a Dodge guy so I'm not sure.

Notice the running board under the wreck. It seems to match the ones on the cars in the pictures.

Inner bead, head light bucket and mount.

Thank you all for your help on this. Guess I'd better find an antique Dodge forum if I want more details.

Regarding the level of rusting asked by Luke, I don't know what is considered "bad," but this one seems pretty far gone. The front left fender is rusted through to some degree. I would guess it wouldn't be salvagable, but I don't know. There are a few brass pieces here than there that would probably be useful.

Again, thank you all very much.

My brother has a '29 Dodge six that could use an overdrive or higher speed rearend. What does this one have?

That car looks very much like a Dodge, but the logo on the front looks like W. Could it Be Willys or some other company that starts with a W? The Dodge had a 6 pointed star not a W.
