Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Ford parts from barn
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Denis Mailloux on Saturday, February 06, 2016 - 04:06 pm:

I just cleaned out a barn that belonged to a deceased relative. There were some old Ford parts in there and I'm looking to see if there is any interest in them. There are two fenders, two doors and a radiator. I know absolutely nothing about vintage cars but I do have pictures. The condition is quite good as they have been stored inside the barn for over 60 years. Ask and I will send photos. Thanks

Rather than going through the hassle of sending out the same pictures over and over, why not just post them here?

The fender looks like '17 - 25 T. The door is not Ford.

That door sure looks neat! Appears to be from at least a mid-price-range car, based on the trimming and it still has the original pinstripe on it. you might try some more pics of it showing the latch side and the hinge side, someone here may recognize it. That upturned front top is likely somewhat unique, considering that it appears to be a rear door. Although the leather arm rest also indicates the seat would be close to the edge of the door.

Good point David. The curve on the upper front of the door suggests an early dual cowl touring. Lincoln and White come to mind.

Denis - Might be that looking thru' yours or any relatives old family photo albums might just help,.....back in the early days of the automobile, just about every family took pictures of their automobiles, as cars were probably more of a "prized possession" then than they are now. FWIW,.....harold

I will go take more pictures tomorrow weather permitting. There are not many pictures of him that have survived. The only one I have seen of him was with an old Indian motorcycle. I really appreciate your help, thanks.

More photos, I also found what looks to me to be a fuel tank to some car.

Denis, the round gas tank is typical for Model T Ford from 1913 to 1920 or there abouts.

The door hinges seem to be a concealed pocket hinge similar to these on my 1915 Maxwell. Yours are different but many cars used them. These type hinges can't be seen when the doors are closed. That might help in identifying your doors from photos. The doors could be late teen's or so. Someone who has such a car would certainly recognize them and this forum has a variety of interests. The AACA forum has a vast membership and would also be a good place to get these recognized. Someone would love to have them but until you find him they aren't worth too much.
My 2 cents worth.

Doors look like 1917 or 1918 Overland.

Since there are other T parts in the barn, I wonder if those doors could be from an aftermarket T body, such an Ames Cloverleaf or something? Just a thought. Dave
