Absolutely beautiful, NOS accessory winter blanket for hood and radiator of a 17-23 Model T. Manufactured by the Vatco Manufacturing Company of Boston, Massachusetts this combines winterfront with hood blanket for winter driving. Winterfront/radiator portion has holes for crank and filler neck, can be rolled up and is held in place with snaps. Hood blanket portion has corner straps for the hood. Manufacturer's tag and stamp on the inside (see pictures). Leatherette exterior with jute/burlap backing. This is NOS - it has NEVER been on a car - there are no marks on the jute and the 90+ year old packing creases are fresh on the exterior. The only wear is a slight deterioration of the leatherette at the edge of one of the packing folds. Other than that, the leatherette is in exceptional condition and the blanket could be used if that is the desire of the next owner. A very unique, NOS winter accessory in incredible condition.

One additional picture (minor cracking of leatherette around corner of a fold):
Thanks Tim - it's beautiful and you don't see many of them around (especially in this condition). Needs a good home.
Several PMs asking if I could take a picture of the blanket on a low radiator T. Unfortunately, the only low radiator machine I have is my '17 power unit and that is buried away in winter storage.

Hi Ron, PM sent
Hood blanket is spoken for, pending final payment.
Blow up the photo and notice the centerdoor is sporting one of these radiator/hood blankets.
