I have a copy of the first parts book for the model T, & it lists a hinge for the floor boards, P/N 1043 Floor board hinge. I have never seen any floor board hinges on any of the first 2500 cars,can any one give some insight on this Question. Donald Shanabrook email@example.com or 419 447 4254
Just observation, but that P/N is in the same series as P/N's for the Town Car, 1909. (ref: B. Mac's CD Ency parts listing)
That series is 1037 - 1046.
P/N 1043 Floorboard Hinge 1909
P/N 1044 (12/18/09) Wood screw for floorboard hinge
He notes these P/N are in Acc 515 at the Benson Ford.
So guess is that part is for the Town Car. Maybe hinge for tool compartment, front or rear?
Don't have a Town Car handy to check it out
