Well now, let's tear this car apart and see what's original and what's not.
The front of the rad shell is missing (rather odd).
It has a '19 or later wishbone.
A '17 or earlier windshield.
A '19 or later dash.
'19 or later wheels.
No oil lamps and '19 or later starter car windshield brackets.
Body parts look mismatched in colour.
Looks like it was put together.
Anyone else?

Three panel rear section, body looks to be 1920 or later. Looks like a good start to a car though.

Do I see a 24 and up radiator?

It has a three piece rear section, but the top saddles are the (earlier) over the top type. There is no upper hole in the panel!
There is no bolt head in the side of the body, so that means it has wooden seat frames.
It looks like the arm rests have the outside tack strip.

My guess is 1920-early 1921, with a few mis-matched parts (on a Model T ?!?)

Agreed, it is a good start if someone wants a car to restore.

Those front top irons are 22's, gosh, I'd love to see the front seat box, just to see the sides where the lower stem of those irons bolt to. With a three piece tub, and the over the rail top saddles, suggests 21, this must be either a late 20 or early 21, it has the metal "S" bracket that holds the first part of the bend piece of the tack rail and yet there's no hole for the top saddle arm that should be directly above the fender mounts hole.

Interesting car, would like to look it over, but the commute is a wee bit far for me. :-)

The way the seller has got that front axle chained down,.....besides "unsafe", it looks like a good way to end up with a bent front axle!

Happy motoring,
