Weird stuff. Why don't the hoods get painted? The 1926 - 27 touring with the brass radiator and early fenders gets extra credit for weirdness.

Ditto. And a red '15?? Tisk tisk. ;)

Careful, Tim -- A lot of folks on here just love their red 15's. Not me, but lots of others. :-)

Royce. I have not painted the aluminum new hood on my 1910. It looks so nice, I left it unpainted. I will paint it when I redo the body and will paint the hood green as the body should be.

Yeah, I know Mike, and really, I don't mind. I just like to help people's circulation... ;)

There's a nice '11 Torpedo on Hemmings, that while it is blue,it's really not the super dark blue it ought to be, but ya know, I'd buy it anyway if I could! It's still pretty. Yes, even I do bend a bit once in a while!! :-)

Royce, well spotted on the tourer. It is in fact a later body grafted onto a brass radiator. However, it is not a 26-7 body. It is an early 1920's, no later than 1922, Duncan and Fraser standard tourer body. These had the sloping windscreen much earlier than US cars, so they may appear later to US T enthusiasts. Whole totally incorrect, it is remarkable how well the whole goes together.

Mine for example.....is an October, 1921 Canadian built, Australian (Steenbohms, Sydney NSW) bodied touring.
It has a sloping windscreen and a one man hood. Quite stylish for us here in the antipodes, eh?
Cheers,
Rob
