I'd be concerned about listing heavily to port.

If your fender or windshield causes you to stumble, cast it off and throw it away. It's better to arrive listing and without unnecessary parts than to be thrown whole in the eternal scrap heap..



(sorry Matthew)

It doesn't look like its listing to me. Maybe there's another box on the other side. :-)

I think driving what's left of a T Model might be more fun than driving a T Model. :-)

Can you imagine showing up at a car show with something like that?

Fred,
I bet it would get more attention than any other car! :-)

Yes Henry and Fred, they do get more attention. I have a 24 with "holy" fenders and lots of junk--including an authentic "two holer "-- and lots of other stuff hanging on on it. It has a real buggy seat and a barn wood rear platform---no "body" as such. I can take any combination of it and any other restored vehicle I own, and everyone will want a photo of my "junk truck",

Great picture, Jay. It is either a late 1911 or early 1912. It has the late 1911 type of fore-doors with the dip to fit the 1911 "two-piece" firewall, but this car has the 1912 "one piece" firewall.

Either way, it is clearly a transitional car.

Judging by the condition, it would not surprise me if the photo was taken near 1920.

Is there any marking of the back of the photo?

: ^ )

Are those boxes removeable to put fruit in and ship?? Takes a lickin and keeps on tickin reminds me of when Curly made time fly!! We pulled a machine into the machine repair area at Chevy as far as we could so Curly had to go almost to the main aisle to get room to turn the cat to push.When Curly came back with the cat it was on high boil and with a slight hit he took a time clock off the wall and smashed it to scrap! Culry shut the cat off and the time clock while smashed would still make a loud click click click!! TJ MC Millian who silver soldered carbide on drills and cutters walked up took a look and said the mf must be a timex because it takes a lickin and keeps on tickin!!!Even with 15 guys and the boss watchin Curly never got in trouble cause everyone laughed so hard!! It's been 35 more or less years and Curly is still just as dumb!!! Bud.
