Yeah! Looks like two different '25 coupes (based on the wheels and different accessories), an earlier coupe (with interesting cowl lamps and a few other accessories on it), and a center-door sedan.
A few other interesting cars in the one picture. I wish I could get a better look at the delivery truck.
Thank you for sharing Donnie B!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

I thought the "subject matter" was good in all of them. The little girl with her doll, the way they are all dressed, I wonder if the delivery/hack was used at a "lake resort" somewhere. It appears to be taken at a "lake"

So cool that you saved them! I bet otherwise they'd have ended up in the trash. The "real survivors", if you will, are surely looking down on you Donnie with a smile. If we only knew the story....

I suspect that's a Sunday morning picture. Fancy dress, lots of cars parked by the church.

Great find and worth every penny. I'm with Wayne wanting to see more of the delivery. Another oval window top on the touring.

The second photo has got to be a Rockwell paining, just waiting to happen. They're great Donnie - thank you for sharing.

The Coupe in the pic with the girl and doll has 5-lug demountable wheels. That seems odd, since it would have come with Ford demountables from the assembly plant. Was there some advantage to the aftermarket ones which would cause someone to switch them out?

That Coupe with the girl and doll also seems to have a deep dish step plate or is it just shadows?

The five lug wheels look like 21" to me. I haven't seen those before.

I've got a '24 Coupe that I came with a set of 21" 5 lug demountables on the front. I assumed they were some aftermarket brand. Is that unusual? -Mike

Thanks for posting Donnie, great photos. I agree with Steve, I think that was Sunday morning after church.

Happy motoring,

Warren

I did not notice the five lug wheels! Good catch, guys. That means that coupe is probably a '24 with after-market wheels. Yes, several companies did make balloon tire wheels for Ts before Ford began offering them for 1925. Balloon type tires began coming around about 1922 if I recall correctly. Those balloon tire after-market wheels are fairly rare. I have only seen a few sets in all my looking. (Of course, if I keep missing that?)
Thanks all!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

On the third picture, are the front fender braces normal?

Is it unusual that the lugs are not spaced evenly on the 5-lug wheel?

Derek, the spacing does appear to be uneven. Never noticed that before.... Front fender braces were a common accessory, but that one is different than any I remember seeing before. There are several different types of accessories on these cars
