Very snazzy indeed.
Is that Christchurch New Zealand? Wonder what the colours were? And look at the gloss on that paint!
Man, I love that.
It looks like the radiator is painted body-color, too.
Lots of funny stuff going on there. 1914 body style with 1913 forward folding windscreen. How many spokes in those wire wheels??? The fenders are custom made. Looks like the body is painted in two tones. Wooden running boards too. Somebody has done a really neat job upgrading the appearance.

Yes, NZ Christchurch
That is one mighty handsome model 'T'...
The first thing I noticed was the wire wheels on a brass era photo! I often comment how rare it was for wire wheels to be on Fords before about 1920. Then I noticed a few other things and knew it was one of those extra beautiful "Southern" Ts.
Still, it does have wire wheels.
Great photo! Thanks Jay and all!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
DAMM!!! That is one fine looking Ford! that one just went to my desk top.
wheels look to be either dayton or houk as you can see the pin drive holes in the spare. i'm with allan, there looks like a lot of spokes. standard daytons are 48, next up were 54, and the racer wheels were 60. later than this era they went up to 72
It's really hard to count them but there are more than 60 spokes per wheel
Look what I found in the New Zealand National Library!!! That is one good looking Ford.
