I love diamond-tufted upholstery, long, slanty, brass windshield braces, stepped wooden bodies that have no front doors and "flying" rear fenders that only wrap 1/4 of the way around the wheels. The only visual deficiency of these early cars is the lack of hood louvers.
Isn't it interesting how the Model T Fords of 1927, which, in their most essential and basic sense were the same machine as those built in 1909, bore so little visual resemblance to each other?
Love these old pics, hard times yes, happier times, probably.
Nice detail on the pinstripe. Notice there is NO strip on the lower section of the body below the doors. Also the vertical stripe on the front and back of the hood. A stripe goes along each side of the center hood hinge. No "boxes" on the hood.
Another interesting item is the top boot.
I can't tell if the speedometer road gear is brass plated. Looks pretty dark, and I can't see if the little rubber tips are on the windshield rods, either.

I don't know, John. They don't look real happy.
That is one sweet lookin' car, and Hal, I agree...looks like those gals were sucking on pickles.
