Nice photo of a 1913 British T.

I just can't get used to that British styling!

Surely that's not a production UK car ? How many accessory or "up-date" items does it have ? Not being a smart-alec Royce, how could you tell it's a '13 ?

That is the standard 1913 Trafford Park Manchester UK body styleIt appears to have some aftermarket lamps and the optional hub demountable wheels. Here's one with all the standard items in place:




The British T's of 1913 were more weather tight than US designed bodies. They also had a driver side door as well as passenger side.

The metal firewall is reminiscent of US built Maxwells of the era.

Thanks for the education, Royce, much appreciated. The second car's fenders look more "Fordish" - were the crown fenders in the first picture a Manchester factory item ?

I guess all that English rain made for an interest in better fenders and a tighter "cowl" !

A chauffeur-driven Model T seems like an anomaly . . .
