I just took another look and my tires are a little low, so the actual height with full tires may be closer to 72 1/2" to 72 3/4". Jim Patrick

For comparison, future reference for the FWIW dept., the '26 TT with enclosed steel cab measures in at 7'4".... Standing tall!

I've said it before, I'll say it again. ANY given year and body style of model T (or almost any other car) can vary in height by about (more than?) two inches solely due to wheel and tire sizes, tire make and condition, and various suspension conditions (spring arch), can all make a difference higher or lower. Accessory shock absorbers alone can add as much as more than an inch.
My point, is simply, that when using someone else's car to estimate the height for your car, allow at least two additional inches. Unless the person knows his car is relatively taller or shorter than most.

And don't forget, after you get the T home, we need pictures!
Do drive carefully! And enjoy, W2
