This is a picture of my grandparents standing beside what I think is their Model T Roadster. The picture was taken in 1922 so the car dates sometime before that. To me the fender and deck look like a Model T Roadster. I'm hoping someone can help with the I.D. Thanks
tell your grandparents to move out of the way so we can see
I’m 90% sure that it is a Model T Ford. The rear fender has the characteristic closer to the front of the rear tire and then moving further from the rear tire appearance of a T. It appears to be a 1917-1925 rear crowned rear fender (some were used as early as late 1916 production. And they could be used as a replacement on some other years. Below are some photos taken from the “Vintage Ford” from a similar angle and used by permission. Mostly touring cars – but it shows you what they look like fender and rear axle. All photos were cropped to show the left rear.

Below a 1917 Couplet that I flipped so it would look very similar it is actually the other side from the original photo (it appears to have accessory rear brakes and later demountable rims).
Below is an illustration of 1917-20ish roadster (ok that's going by memory -- so I may be off some):
Above is a cropped and contrast adjusted version of your original photo. Note it appears there is a blanket or something on the rear section. That makes it harder to tell if it was a runabout (roadster), coupe, or cut off.
