I bought a stack of 5 windshields today at an auction and I'm trying to identify them. I know a picture is worth 1,000 words, but my camera is at the office. One of them is a Rand Mfg brass with identical lower and upper pieces, each measuring 41 1/4 X 12 3/4. The windshield is fastened to the upper part of a 2 piece firewall with a bracket on each end and one in the middle. The brackets attaching the two pieces of firewall together is a flat piece of brass that has a fancier curve shape, not your usual rectangular shape, and does not have a "bump out" for the brass trim around the firewall. The brass trim is flush with the edge of the firewall, which i believe the 1909 had. Any help on what year this might be?
A few pictures would be nice, might help in the identification too. Besides we love to see goodies.
There was no particular 1909 Windshield. Rands made a dozen or more variations. Yours sounds appropriate for a 1909 - 12. For any brand of car, not just a Model T.
Also the top was not standard in 1909 and the available tops varied considerably. The windshield height would be sized to match the top ideally.
Love that first photo Royce.
