Well, it looks to be a black era coupe. Color appears correct. Seems
to have a correct type engine in place. Some silly person forgot to paint
the wheels black.

Is that the correct upper radiator hose? I'll bet someone put marvel mystery oil into some orifice on that car. Oh my God, it has a water pump! It looks like a really nice Model T. I wish it was in my shed.

Mike,
This is a doctor's T.

I imagine that he is nearby helping a patient. If you wait long enough I imagine he/she will return and let you know more about the car.

You will see more of these as doctors go to pay as you go health care.

Mike,

Here is the other photo


I the car looks great.

As far as posting photos, I think that somehow you may have deleted the "\" so the last photo didn't post.

Looks like a nice 24-25 coupe from New York.

Steve, nope, it's a '23 or earlier. I'm not very good with the earlier coupes. '24-'25 coupes have the door handles at the rear of the door, they aren't "suicide" doors such as this. Also, it has a low radiator, no splash shield under the radiator or vent door in the cowl. Looks like a darn nice coupe though! Dave

Mike, nice looking coupe. I am thinking 1919 to 1922 based on the pics. It has a generator and the doors are hinged at the rear. Just a guess, there are others on this forum that know more than myself. Drive it and enjoy it as is. Welcome aboard!

That is a very nice looking Coupe. Early '23 or earlier because of the suicide doors. Late '23 the doors changed the hinges to the rear of the door. The squared off turtle deck is another indication of the earlier Coupes the later Coupes had a rounded transition where they tied into the rear of the cab.

Aha! I saw a radiator apron where there wasn't one. I should have looked at the doors.

No cowl lamps and straight door handles. If the door windows are regulated by a ratchet fixture to hold the glass in several positions, then I believe it's 1922-early 1923. If the door windows still have the strap to hold them up, then I believe it's 1920-1921, but then should have "bail" outside door handles. I'm guessing 1922 or early 1923.

I can tell you it makes me regret not buying one just like it at an auction last year. Great looking T, I imagine you'll have lots of fun with it.

Mike, to post more pics in the same thread, after you get your first pic loaded in, go to where there's all the "jargon" and hit your "enter" key once or twice to move your curser. Then go to the "upload attachment" button again and put in another one. And another, and another if you want. Successive pics may not necessarily show up in your preview, but assuming they're small enough, they will be there once you post the actual message. Everybody else covered the car especially the model year per Dave Stroud.

The very first thing to check to see if its a 17-early 23 Coupe is the cowl. NO cowl vent means its the earlier black era Coupe

If it has a cowl vent its a 24-25 Coupe. This is the first and easiest way to tell the difference.

Hi Mike,

I'm leaning toward 1923 because the trunk doesn't have a handle on it; it's opened with the key.

Look for the engine serial number on the left side of the engine, stamped on a pad just above the water inlet.

Never call it a "doctor's coupe". Just plain coupe is correct.

Others have pointed out some options on this car. The water pump, natural wood spokes instead of black paint, something going on with the oil filler. The MotoMeter is aftermarket. Were you looking to buy this? Where in NY? I have a '24 coupe outside Syracuse.

One piece front spring clamp so no earlier than 1920.

door frames appear to be painted wood....beginning in 22, the "window and door sills were now covered with metal , as on the sedan" per Bruce McCalley p.306

"Never call it a "doctor's coupe". Just plain coupe is correct."

Andrew, the literalists on the forum would say that they are all coupes, but that Noel Chicoine's coupe in South Dakota is also correctly a "doctor's coupe." (I, on the other hand, own a 1924 translator's touring... :-) )

Made in calendar year of 1921! :-)
