That's OK Herb..it's early! Looks like a T, yet the front fender and squared-off windshield don't.

The rear end looks similar to a Model T

I could be wrong, but I thought Chevy's had springs running fore and aft on each axle end, not across them like Model T's? Is it a Maxwell?
Maybe it's a "Heinze 57" T?? LOL

Looks like it has large diameter brake drums. I suppose they could be RockyMountain, when were they introduced? I thought it was in the twenties...
The rear fenders have more shape than Model T, so I vote that it is not a T.

The 490 Chevys had quarter elliptical springs running fore and aft, but not extending past the axles, like in this picture originally posted by Ralph Ricks:

Good picture Roger (and Ralph). I though Maxwell too but it's not a Maxwell rear end. Fenders and windshield are very similar.

Every time I see that picture, I want to build a ridiculously low Model T speedster.
