Your photo is of the "Silver Streak" carrying the 'gypsy coeds' on one of their summer tours. These girls were from a small town in central Illinois and took trips all over the country in this car. Looks like it may be from the 1939 trip to the New York Worlds Fair, where they met a man by the name of Henry Ford.

I understand a story is upcoming in the club magazine pretty soon. The car still exists, much the same as in the photo, and will be on exhibit at the MTFCI museum during the homecoming. I have seen the car and it still a relatively authentic early '26 touring. Look at this photo really close and you can see the clincher rims. Notice how the girls in the back seat seem to be sitting high? They are sitting on the tent that the girls pitched to spend the night in.
HI Ed. This picture was taken at Greenfield Village in 2012. My wife and I took the car there to get some photos and to do some research. The location is the same location where the car and the Gypsy Coeds were photographed with Henry Ford in 1938. Museum staff helped us find the same spot, even though the landscape has changes a great deal.
I wonder what the percentage of '26 cars is that had 30 X 3 1/2's on them. There sure seems to be a lot of them around still.
30x 3.5" clinchers are alive and well on my 26, built in March according to the body number. I've seen one other T made not long after mine which also has them.
JohnH, where do you find the body number?
