Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2005: What radiator apron?

My car is missing the lower radiator apron, and I'm just curious as to what type it should have.
The motor # works out to be October 10, 1923.

Thank you

Should have the wide one and not the skinny for the high radiator.

Your fenders do not have the flares on the front so you need the skinny apron like used from 17 to 23.

Jim,

The use of the apron you describe has nothing to do with the fender flares. There are many T's without the flared fenders that have the wide, full apron.

It's more a destinction between low radiators having the narrow apron, (Lang's c/n 3977A), and high radiators having the full apron, (Lang's c/n 3977BQ or 3977EB).

The T pictured needs c/n 3977BQ.

This seems to be a commonly missing piece. My TT came without it, and I've seen several others the same way.
