Perfect T driving weather in Central NY. 70's, and no rain! Anyone up for a ride? Let us know
First pictures are of a winery we came upon, with a lot of automotive memorabilia. They sent us to another winery that had the Model T for sale. It looked to be excellent original wood. If anyone is interested PM me and I will give you the information. Also jammed into this barn was a late 40's Hudson and a 41 Packard. The Hudson looked decent, but there was so much junk in the way, I couldn't get near it. The Packard needed a complete restoration. Both of these cars could probably be bought.
We found some dirt roads that we have not T'd down before. Today's Mileage is 117.

The rivets at the intersection of every cross piece and the style of the tailgate latches is indicative of a York-Hoover body. As hack bodies go, those are very well made.

Great post and photos. The Hudson looks like it might be right around a 1940. Hudson's were very well made and great cars to own.

Happy motoring,

Dr. Warren

Warren, When did Hudson change to the "stepped on" style?

I love the patina on your '14 Dan :-)

The Hudson looks like a '41. The "step down" Hudsons with unibody design came in 1948.

The hack body looks very much like the one on my 1919. The windshield and seat backs are different but the remainder looks almost the same.
It would be interesting to see if there is a brass plate on the outside next the front passenger's seat
