I took a drive to Denny Newman's place today. He had called and said he was working on a original 1923 Fordor that had just about every available after-market accessory of the day on it. Even the flower vase had decades old flowers still in it. This was purchased new in 1923 by the current owners father. The car has been on the road its entire life. It's just neat to have documented proof since day one. It is still driven today... Note the car has heat both front and rear. The body is a mix of steel and aluminum. Truly a piece of history here. Also, all the windows have pull down shades. Just too cool !!

Fantastic :-)
Any history about total mileage? Any broken cranks from the additional Frontenac power etc?

Yup, that is a great and very special Model T.

Roger, the owner wasn't present to ask questions. I will ask Denny Newman if he knows the mechanical history and get back with you.

A very cool running board light; very uncommon & just what I need for my future boattail speedster!
(except I can't afford them!)

Somewhere between 1925 and 1938 it got that cool radiator shell and fenders. Very cool.

How wonderful! It appears that the 'Lincoln' radiator and shell must have been about 1938. Was that common or a rarity?

Appears to have v8 wheels at one point then back to original accessory wheels.

Well I asked Mr Newman if he had the mechanical history on this beast and he said.. "I ain't talkin to you Booth!!". His exact words...
