While working toward my Dad's estate auction www.tomdaw.com, I have found an aluminum hood that I am seeking information on. It is non-ventilated, is 21 1/2" from front to back, 18" accross the top (9" from hinge to middle, 9" from middle to other hinge) and the side panels are 16" tall. The panels are fairly flat. There is a handle on each side panel. Would anyone recognize this hood?
It is on the web site under "Various Parts." It is 5 rows down and the second picture from the left.

Vents didn't appear until 1915. That looks like a '14 or earlier Ford hood. Someone flattened out the top panels.

With out going home to check on the hood on my 1910 T, I would say it is a 1909-10 Model T Ford hood.

LOL... If you're now talking about the top row, left that's a pre-15 aluminum hood. It's missing the center rod but doesn't look like it's flattened all that bad. There's riveted formers under the top panels. The handles are cast.

By the way, the edges can be repaired.
