Something I've always wondered about, in regards to the Couplet, as in the fourth picture. Most period photos show the cowl lamps turned inward as in the the above photo. Usually every modern restored couplet photo shows, the cowl lamps are turned outward like the other body styles. I would think Ford would have a standard mounting procedure on this, or is it just somthing that's just overlooked?

I love these old photos. I'm not much of a researcher but some photos really lend themselves to investigation:

Chatham Lighthouse, Cape Cod, Mass.
Before 1923 it had two lights:

1930 was shown above:
chatham2

Now... note addition in back and change in front (removal of two front lean-tos which are visible in 1930 photo:

The 1915 Copelet is a very early one, with no porthole windows in the top and with the "fat-rimmed" cowl lamps. The headlights look as if they might be the bigger ones as well. Oh, to be able to see one of those in person at that time! We could learn a great deal from it. What a great pic!

The last Picture says on the side of the TT,
"Post Exchange
Ft Benning GA"
This is just like Wheel of Fortune on TV.
So Funny...

John Berch, interesting observation. I had not noticed that. Any other opinions out there? Dave
