I am trying to build a set of top irons for a 1920 Roadster from a small mountain of stray pieces. Can anyone help me with pictures or a diagram with the correct dimensions to fit this car, any help sure would be appreciated.

Bill

Keith,

What book is that sketch from?

Since Keith must be out touring in his T for the weekend I'll answer the question Bob has asked.
The drawing is found in the book "The Model T ford Owner" by Murray Fahnestock. It was originally printed about 1921. In the reprint 1983, the drawing is found on page 155. Note this drawing applies only to the 1915-1921(?). Those with the straight windshield. It will not work for the 1914 and earlier cars with the wood dash. It is a good drawing and gives some basic demensions to work from.
Hope this helps.
JP

Keith,

Thanks for the diagram, it gives me someplace to start. Now all I have to do is sort through my stash of top irons and see what will work.
