Helps if you carry a complete tool kit, I don't see were they have the car jacked up but it don't look safe!

Five panel body? One man top? Slanted windshield?
Nice top boot!
Great photo!
Thank you, Jay!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Their hands & arms aren't very dirty for doing that kind of work. I wonder if that lantern near his right foot meant they started in the dark.

I suspect it's a posed recent photo.

Looks posed with the signs, but not recent.. Maybe a period photo from a movie set?

Those big 6x6 posts are stuck firm in the ground, seems like the ropes around the foreground post are strapped up under the chassis, and the car is hanging by those ropes as the fellows remove the axle housing, only one side, to fix ring gear stripped, or a busted axle on the drivers side.

Passenger side wheel is on the ground. Flashlight hanging between the rear fender and body over the ground worker to view under the car.

Sure like the paint lettered clincher tire forming the round sign for towing, run thru with a metal stake! :-)

Super fun photo!

Looks like they have an additional stop or tail light

Lantern is interesting. Looks like a Coleman except it appears to have six window panels.

I believe it is a 1917-1920 car that had the windshield and top replaced with a one man top and the slanted windshield. That should be a bolt on change. And of course is 1917-1918 then also converted to demountables. See photo below for rationale.



The three piece rear tub came out during 1921 for USA cars and long before the 1923 models were introduced. Note the Canadian cars had the slant windshield earlier -- but I don't think it is a Canadian car, as I do not see a door hinge/door on the left front.

Great photo. Anyone know what year or state etc. the license tag is?

Respectfully submitted,

The plate looks like a 23 or 25 California plate.

The year does look more like a "23" in the photo but the 25 had the same design and the lighter background and darker letters would indicate a 25.

Thanks Jim. If someone drove under something and destroyed the windshield and top -- replacing it with the new style in 1924 or 25 would give you a "new Ford."

Respectfully submitted,
