I'll go put on a limb and say it is a post 19 Model T with a brass T radiator and a Body reminiscent of an N. Maybe a real N body and fenders. Others will know more.

Two interesting things. It has a neat cross drive magneto. And, The Model N front fenders are put on upside down, (i.e. wide end at the top, narrow end at the bottom.)

Richard,

The body is not a real N. Maybe the fenders are but, nothing else I can see.

I like the magneto and the Firestone demountable wheels.

To call it a "1907 Ford Model N With Model T Upgrades" is absurd though.

Dog gone it, I've been looking for a 21" Firestone demountable rim for a couple years and there's a Model T, N, something with 4 of them in Phoenix. I just can't bring it upon myself to spend that kind of money on a hybrid Model (insert letter here) to get one.

Other than the reproduction Model N Fenders, I didn't notice anything else on the car that looked like it was Model N Ford part. Front and rear axles are T. Rear cross member appears to be the late 1913-1925 style. Rear axle housing appears to have the filler parallel with the axle shafts and the reinforcement ridges on the bottom of the backing plated for a late 1915 or so - early 1919 or so rear axle.

Mike -- you don't need to be concerned -- the 5 lug demountable rims are most likely 30 x 3 1/2. Firestone was one of the most popular brands but not the only accessory brand offered back in the day.

Clayton -- I believe the right rear wheel appears to have part of an accessory outside brake drum and brake parts on it.

It probably could be converted into a speedster without too much effort. Lower the seats, steering column etc. I looked and the Right Hand Drive steering column is NOT a Model N,R,S, or SR but appears to be Model T. I'm not sure if they just moved a normal LHD column over or how they did that. I do NOT see the hogs head. Looking at the left side of the engine you can see the white body through the opening in the dash -- but I don't see the hogs head. It also appears to have an add on in front of the rear axle pumpkin. And I do not see the pedals on the right side of the car from the photo shown. So an important question is -- where is the transmission/hogs head etc.? The right hand drive parts if correct or done nicely could be a plus to someone wanting a RHD T.

Generator engine dates the engine to 1919 or later. The one-piece valve cover began production Nov 1, 1921 so it is at least that late of an engine. (with about 6 months overlap when both one-piece and two-piece valve cover engines were produced)

Model N -- parts -- so far the reproduction fenders (I think they are in too nice a condition to be originals.) Possibly the one ear hood hold downs -- but those maybe T or reproduction.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

Hap Tucker the only thing obvious to me is that you were Sherlock Holmes in a previous incarnation.
