Craig,

Based on your other posting at: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/506218/525393.html?1426328797 it sounds like your engine is running. But from your request for a body etc. it sounds like you may have a chassis and not have a body or a body that needs a lot of work. If that is the case, you may want to consider a temporary speedster body, open pickup body, etc. until you find and prepare a body. See: http://www.rootlieb.com/speedster-kits.html

Also you may want to decide what you want to do with your car. If you would like to make it as reasonably correct for a given year, your approach will probably be different than if you want to get it on the road as quickly as possible and you don’t care how many parts are from different years etc. There isn’t a “right or wrong” answer to that question. It is up to you. But if you don’t make a decision to pick a specific year for your car you will almost always wind up with a larger mix of different year parts than if you decide to shoot for a single model year.

Let us know which way you are going on that. For it can impact what type of body you are looking for. If you don’t care about the year range parts – any 1915-1923 roadster body will fit any 1909-1925 chassis. So will the 1924-25 body – but in that case you either need to run it without a hood, swap to a high radiator and appropriate hood, put blocks under the low radiator to raise it up to the proper height of a high radiator and appropriate hood etc. And 1922 is a unique year for roadster bodies. In calendar year 1922 you could purchase an older style 1915-1922 style body or a later style 1923 body (which would have been a 1923 model year roadster). See: http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/1921-25H.htm where it states: “The Runabouts received the new body styling about October 1922 (the date is uncertain). Also at this time the Runabout also received the new turtle deck which was considerably larger and flared upward to match the rear of the body.” So an engine manufactured in late 1922 could easily have been installed in a car with the 1923 model year body.

Again I would recommend joining the local Model T club near you. It will help you a lot in deciding what options you have and how you want to proceed. If I was only going to have one Model T, I personally would prefer a body style that would allow me to carry more passengers. I can give four or even five kids a ride in the touring easily at one time but only one kid at a time in my speedster. Of course I knew one owner that had a two seater because it would only carry one other passenger – and he liked that idea.

Good luck with your T.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off
