Looks like the remains of a 1923 Model T, considering the 1923-25 windshield but the lack of a 1924-27 radiator apron.

Poor fellows inside the Ford :-(

No lip on fender, no lower radiator splash shield at the crank. I'm with Roger, 1923.

Is it a 23-25 windshield, or was it bent back in the wreck?

It had stantions, earlier US windshields didn't. Had it been an earlier Canadian version, then the lower windshield pane would also have been able to open.

The car has New York 158-142, for a license plate. The original color was white on gray and the year was 1924.

Almost new, bummer!

I found that I can't add a photo on edit.



The year must by 1924. Is the rest of the car in the Erie Canal?

You will need to check the straightness of the crankcase.

N,
Duct tape would have been useful but alas, it too was some years off into the future.
