Being 1920 it seems ahead of it's time.
It looks 26-27 ish.

It looks a LOT like the "improved" T. No doubt somebody at Ford must have seen this.

Well designed automobile bodies were well available on other makes by 1920. Ford kept the basic simple design since it was much cheaper to build, The 26-27 body used more steel and less wood than previous bodies. Ford bought many of the bodies from suppliers, but made all the fenders, splash aprons and running boards. The bodies probably cost more in 1926 as well as the rest of the car.
