How can you identify a 1927 Roadster cab body half from an original touring car front half? I have found a partial body but do not know if it is the front half of a 1927 touring car or a pickup cab. What would be the difference, please. Photo's?

Thanks

Plucked this from the net, but you can see where the touring back half has ben cut away at the vertical line. An original roadster won't have this line.

The picture by Gary is the back half of a touring. You will notice the vertical line where the back door was fitted.

See picture of my car the back is rounded.
