Looks like 30x3,5" tires. It's rare to se a visor on an open car.

Taken before pit bull reputations got maligned. My dog is 1/2 PB and he is the best dog I've ever had.

Nice picture. My early '26 runabout came with 30 x 3 1/2 wheels. At first I thought the previous owner had swapped with an earlier year T as I thought all '26s came with balloon tires and wheels. But I realized that the rear hubs were of the improved type. When I saw that a man who was selling NOS parts (this was years ago) had the improved spare tire spider for that size wheel I was convinced that it was the way it came from the factory (part 2874). I have since switched over to wire wheels. In some ways I am sorry that I didn't keep it original, but the wire wheels sure look great.
The one in the photo has the headlight cross bar which would make it a later '26 than mine. The headlights attached directly to the fenders on mine.

I have seen a crossbar that was used with the fender mounted headlights. It clamped between the headlight base and the fender and it was adjustable as well.
The 30x3-1/2 clincher tires were popular in more remote/rural areas as the 21" tires took some time to become popular and available. Everyone knew how to work on the clinchers and had supplies. Plus the narrow tires plowed mud and snow better!!

Looks like it has accessory hub caps/hub covers.

Are you sure the kids aren't just trying to find Pokemon?

Like the writing on the side of the wheelbarrow.
