Looks like a 23-4 coupe.
I presume the radiator was not hot at the time the picture was taken.
Note the accessory fender brace.
Here's a set of NOS fender braces from our collection.
Joe, not a '23, it has a high radiator. Dave
Late '23 went to a high radiator, Dave June or July, I believe
My grandmother told me that a hussy sat on the hood of a Model T the day WWI ended. They had a parade in Salt Lake City and the sweet young thing straddled that hood and rode it like a horse.
From what I have read here on this forum from many that are much more knowledgeable than me, the low radiator is a '23, the so called "late" '23 with the high radiator is actually a '24. Let the games begin. Dave
David, the on line encyclopedia states that high radiators were used in July of '23. It also states that fenders with the lip to match the radiator valance were used starting in 23. I have had a '23 with a low radiator and also one with a high radiator. That was long before I really cared so don't remember serial numbers. Actually I still don't care. trying to pin down running changes in a T is a lot of guesswork, and about like trying to nail jello to a wall.
My guess would be if they found some floor sweepings they could still use on a car, it went out the door. Part of the charm.
People sitting on hoods is how many of them (mine included) got those "smiley faces" on the top.
OK, so has everyone that said the late high radiator '23 T's are actually '24's changed their minds? Now I don't know what to think. Dave
Dave -- I haven't changed my mind. The high radiator cars came out earlier in the year than typical model year changes, giving rise to the modern term, "Late '23." But as far as I know, Ford referred to the high-radiator cars as '24 models.
Mike, that's what I have read on here many times over from more than a few years back. It always made sense to me, but I'm by no means an expert. JMHO. Dave
Here's a quote attributed to Trent Boggess, posted by Hap in another current thread:
"There are no 'experts' on the Model T alive today. They are all long gone."
Most of us practical guys work tirelessly to make all Model Ts correspond to what Bruce wrote in the Encyclopedia, Get with the program....
