I don't think that is an old photo or a new car. Background and racking looks very modern. Front fender is bent. Rad shroud has chipped paint near the top and lower section looks beat up. Two funny bent rods on front suspension. And what is it with the one oil lamp sticking way out?
Tires are modern Universal T-drivers
Tread pattern is one of the first things I usually look for when trying to figure out if a photo is old or new.
The radiator chips might be light reflections (seems to be a lot of reflections on the rest of the car). The sidelight brackets are the style for a truck or depot hack. They should be the type that mounts the lights almost flush with the
windshield posts. The front axle appears to have an accessory set of springs/shocks. Also the wheels look like the 1922 steel felloe type.
I also noticed the drivers side headlight lens is turned and possibly cracked.
Who ever put those stupid sidelights on, should be sent out in the ocean and sunk!
Good eyes you guys. It sure isn't a T era photo.
The great depth of field points toward a modern small format camera.
It has H&D type shock absorbers. One of the first things that caught my eye was the black painted wheel rims.
And those side-lamps do look terrible.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
It's not the sidelight brackets that are wrong - the side lights don't belong at all. The 24-25 closed cars did not have side lights.
It's also missing the visor.
Nevertheless Erich, thanks for posting it. It's still good to see the car and a bit of an education on how to spot a not so old, old photo.
Also has a bent front fender...
Steve I mentioned that in my first post.
I have a couple of those I'm taking to Chickasha. They look just like that one -- shiny black paint, somewhat bent.
Boy! You guys are picky, picky, picky. I think it's a really fine looking Toyota.
