Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: Number matching 1927 Roadster

A friend of mine bought a number matching 14,800,000 Roadster recently. It seems to be fairly unmolested. It has all of the 1927 features that we talk about, such as stamped rear fender brackets, moulded in side curtain sockets, two clicks on the gas door, turtle deck with integral bottom - etc. One thing that it has that I don't think I have seen before was a belt line wheel-color pin stripe. It starts at the front of the door and continues to the turtle deck, where it turns and follows the turtle deck moulding down to the sub-frame.

Could it have been a Sports roadster?
Any signs of wind wings, top boot etc.?
What's the body color? Pictures, please :-)

Tom

Would be nice to see pics of that striping.

Have couple of pictures of original fine line pin stripes on tourings. On those the stripe starts too on the leading edges of the front doors and around the top of body.

My friend lives out of town and I don't know when I will see him again, so no pictures for now.

The paint is quite deteriorated. The car appears to me to be gun metal blue, although my friend thinks it is drake green. Hard to say as it is well faded. The windshield posts are removed. There is no top left at all.

Tom:

Could you please explain the "turtle deck with integral bottom"? I have a 1926 and it appears that the bottom of the turtle deck was riveted to the sub-frame.

Also does your friend have the three or four bolted to the body spare tire carrier?

My April 27 touring had a casino red pin stripe as well. No wire wheels or other special items. My Dad bought it as second owner in 1947.

Arnie, late 27 turtle decks had the floor built into the turtle deck. The earlier decks had the floor riveted to the sub frame.

The car had a three bolt spare tire carrier.
