This 1920 photo shows when the '12 was sold from the Stockholm area to Artur Bengtsson from Hamneda in the province of Småland. Odd rear fender - maybe it was intentionally bent for a more modern style?

hhhhh

The women appear to be possessed by demons.

Is that Paul Newman in the back seat ?

The photo actually looks like a Terry Gilliam collage.

Burger, you nailed it. Question: is this pic before or after a nice meal of Spam, Spam, sausage and Spam?

The driver almost looks like he could be a son of Hitler, and Burger's right..guy in back sure does look like Paul Newman!

Maybe since the picture is from 1920 that could be a later rear fender. I don't know how you could bend a flat fender round without a lot of work modifying the skirt that hangs down.

I always wondered why the didn't have rift hand drive cars in Sweden in those days.
I drove up there in 1958 and saw very few right hand drive cars.
The ones I did see usually had British plates.

There are other people twisted enough to know "... Been shopping... Whatdja buy? A piston engine... Whatcha gonna do with that? Mmm bake it, I 'spose." ???
Burger. You started it with the Gilliam collage... It does look like that! No it doesn't. Yes, it does!
A very bad play on the Dead Parrot Sketch.
Ehh Hem.
The Swedish folks are very intense. Some Norse's are the same. :-)

Rodger, VERY cool photo! Thank you.
The way the driver has the windshield set works pretty good in cool weather. True.

Roger,
Is it just the fender or has there been a panel inserted in the body aft of the rear door? If the body was so modified and lengthened, it would allow room for a jump seat on the back of the front seat, just where the lady peeking over the drivers shoulder would be. A 1912 touring rear fender that fastens under the rear body would not fit and this fender could be the replacement.

The same rear fender is featured on some 1912/13 Model T's in Australia. Could be it was at some stage available for Ford's of the period.

I believe Layden is correct that the body has been stretched by adding a panel. Look at the curve that is designed to follow the original fender. It is broken by the added panel and then continues after that panel.



Compare that to the cropped photo of the 1912 slab side with rear door handle shown below. (Thank you Jay for posting that complete photo at http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/331880/407412.html?1386966238 .)



Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

If the occupants in the original picture were cut-and-pasted into the photo,
what makes anyone think the car itself wasn't altered by the cut-and-paste
artist ?
