Bought some parts this weekend from a fellow who built a street rod from a 26/27 roadster 50 years ago. These top bow sockets were included and he felt they were from the original car 50 years ago. I've had people tell me they may fit a 26/27 Roadster but they are not original Model T. Any help identifying what they may be. Thanks

Not roadster, part of a touring top, but doesn't look ford.

definitively not 26-27.

They look like 1923-25 to me as the 1926-27 had a curve at the bottom of the bow that attaches to the body.

On second thought, I don't think they are Model T. I don't remember seeing the extra bars like a one man T touring top.

Certainly they are not stock Ford. That being said, they kind of look like they might just work on a 26-7 roadster. I'm guessing maybe a accessory top??? Turn it into a true "one man top".
This just some speculation on my part
I could be interested in them

Les, have no idea on value, there yours if you want. One of the sockets is rusted away on the end but the others are solid. Plus it gives me a opportunity to put your water pump patterns in the same box.Joe

Thanks. I've sent you my address. I trust the patterns proved useful
