My brother and I found the title to our grandpas old 1927 ford model t coupe. I know it will be close to impossible to find it but I thought Id try. I have the engine number (14732227). I think I have a picture of it as well, but Im not sure if it is the same car. If you have any information on how I might go about trying to find this car please message me. My email is justingerald001@gmail.com a photo of what i think was my grandpas old model t

The picture you posted is of a late 1928 or early 1929 Model A Ford "Special"coupe.

'28 - '29 Model A for sure - notice the 21" wires on the rear and the 19" on the front for that "racy" look !

Justin -- The engine number on the title is correct for a '27 Ford, but as the others have said, the pic you posted is of a Model A. You can go to the "Photos" link on the MTFCA home page to see what a '27 Coupe looks like. Maybe that would help you to find Grandpa's car in the stacks of old photos.

Good eye on the wheel sizes, Steve.

Justin, you are correct on finding the car is next to impossible or like "finding a needle in a haystack".
I do not think the DMV will give you much help?
