herb! how dare you call that org torpedo horn ugly !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!lol.charley
If I remember it was quite a few years ago on one of the forums that that horn was called the "Butt-ugly" horn, I guess I remembered it that way.
They were used on some of the torpedoes but not all of them. There was a reason for using them. It had something to do with the hood I think.
The firewall is a few inches more narrow, making the hood difficult to open when using a conventional horn with the large bell.
Gotta admit. The car is interesting. I wonder if the rear doors open at all?
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Does it look like a 09-10 Ford rear seat from a touring?
What I'm thinking is that the young man about town who had a Runabout decided to get married, had a family and needed a bigger car.
He liked the extra legroom in the open runabout.
The kids just crawled over the front seat to get in the rear.
It is a torpedo chassis, hood, fenders, steering column and firewall with a touring body swapped on rather oddly I would say......
Torpedos have doors.
This is an open run about isn't it??
Tom you are right, the windshield supports are a clue.
"Open runabout" is also in the thread title.
The front seat looks to still be the low open runabout style seat. The gas tank must be on the floor between the seats. Good thing those kids don't need much leg room.
