This followed me home yesterday so I opened up the garage and let it in.
I'm posting a few pictures to let you guys pick it apart and tell me what I've got.

Demountables and improved wishbone. You're ready to tour. Does it go after you wind it up?

You need a top and turtle back cover. The snow might get inside the way it is now. By the way, it is not "something new". It is actually something old! :-) Looks good. Have much fun with it.

I like it! Maybe a pair of '13 doors? But not sure what's just ahead of the doors,....between wood firewall and front edge of doors. You could name it "Betsy", but "Bitsy" would be a very descriptive name. Do you have any of the history of your cars "creation"? Many of us are criticized for having a wrong part or two on our cars, but I'm betting you won't get much of that with your car, as nobody'd know where to start! If you ever wanted to add your own personal "touch" to it, a little oak pick-up bed would sure make a cute little rig too!

How and where did it find you ?

It is an interesting body but I certainly wouldn't kick it out to the curb just because it isn't quite what Henry built. I think it's cute and could be a real fun car to tour/play with. No need to worry about what's correct, it may have well earned the modifications along the way. I hope it can be made reliable without too much effort.

That looks like the car that was on ebay a few years ago except it was yellow. My personal theory was it was made from parts of a few cars. Doors and maybe pieces of cowl from a coupe or 4door with the tops cut off? Brass era radiator and fenders A 1920s chassis for ease of driving and repair and one electric headlight and one gas powered one maybe?.
Might be something someone put together with a piece from each year just to prove they could do it.

I'll second what Harold said, make a trip to Snyders and pick up an oak pickup bed for it. I sure love my little red '12 Commercial Roadster pickup. Cutest thing there is. (I'm biased)

It looks like the old johnny cash song...maybe its from some assembly mans lunch box over the years?


The possibilities for it are great though...Just want to finish my 26 roadster in time for spring...

Neat vehicle --

I'm trying to figure out how you got the snow to stick to the side walls! :-)

I wouldn't mind at all if something like that followed me home. I could probably turn it into five different cars before I was done!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

It's a bait car for the know it all at your next car show, you know the guy that is half your age and knows more about your "T" than you do and most of it is incorrect sit back smile and have fun!

Maybe an aftermarket body?

Joe I have a lot of things that followed me home, but yours is a keeper, I like it.
