Interesting back seat.

That's what I was thinking, Bob. It looks like someone just added the rear seat.

You mean I can have a Touring car too? I wonder if the rain caused problems with the oil lamps.

New style mother-in-law seat?

For sure converted from a roadster. It has roadster body side panels and rear deck. Also has roadster top sockets & bows. All inclusive mother in law roadster: you take both mothers in law with you (if they get along!) :-)

Dennis, So would that be called a "Gaggle" in the back seat?

Looks to me like the seat fits onto the top of a pick-up bed. Might be an old buggy seat that was adapted for use.

Jay,

That is known as a two driver car. The person in the front seat just holds the wheel.

Re the side lamps; I have the later ones and if I drive in the rain I put plastic bags over them to keep the water out.

Warren, you could be right about it being a buggy seat. Maybe they decided to carve up the old buggy once they found out how good the Ford was. Might have been planned in advance to beat Ford out of an extra $50.00 for a touring car. It's also possible some now struggling carriage maker was offering such seats to try and stay in business.

Anticipating the approach of Saturday night, Marie has cunningly placed a "back seat" in her flivver.
