I attended an event yesterday and this car was on display. Didn't get to talk to the owner, so I can't tell you any more.

Can anyone guess the seat material ?

There were several other interesting cars in the line-up, but they weren't T's. I'll post the remainder in a separate thread with appropriate "OT" designation.

Lol the seat material looks like Crown Royal bags.

DU-4 magneto for ignition, Rajo "C" head, and a Winfield carb, I bet she runs along pretty quickly.

Model 30 Rajo, these are the early Rajo heads from around 1921.

No info on the DO Fronty in the background?

Sorry, Seth, Kevin has it right. The Model 30 was the first one Rajo came out with in 1919. It has a single intake port in the center of the left side, and four exhaust ports on the same side. The Model C head (introduced in 1922) also had five ports on the left, but two were intake and three were exhaust. The manifold on this head shows the single intake.

Here's a shot of the ports on my Model 30 head.

Huh! Ok cool. I didn't realize there were two heads that looked so similar but were so different.

Here's a shot of the ports on the C head.

Not to be Nit-picky, but this C Head was also called a 35, and RAJO made two models. The early one had the cut-away section on the side for cap screws(like Dave Barker mentioned just above) and the later one had all four manifold bolts the same length as shown above.
