As the saying goes, we only see each other at weddings and funerals. This week I had the misfortune of having to bury the first cousin to pass away from my line. Everyone expected me, the king of the deep fryer, to have this honor, but my cousin, a trim athletic nurse who was much younger beat me to it. She will be missed.
While sitting in the basement of the funeral home, I had a chance to catch up with another cousin who told me he now owns a Model T. He lives only a half hour away from and he obtained his car from his father. He's in the process of rebuilding the engine and I am looking forward to swapping experiences with him and his young son who also seems very excited about the car. It's a small world and I'm sure my cousin is looking down from a better place and smiling at the coincidental meeting she arranged.
I'm surprised no one has said "Hey!, that thing has a ....." after looking at the photo.
He told me it's a 1923.
That's what I said as well. He says the car has had that top for as long as he's known it. He also told me the interior is in great shape. I am looking forward to seeing the car and I want to show him my Fordor in comparison.
I also told him I posted a photo of the car on this website so I hope he'll chime in with more details.
Now THAT is an interesting and neat model T!
I love it.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
I'm far from a closed car expert, but I don't think that's a Ford body. I don't recall seeing any with a total of four side windows on each side.
Lower half is a Ford touring body. Upper half is a rare accessory "California" top.
Rex winter top?
That is a rare "4-man top"
