I was driving through Giddings, TX a few days ago and saw the Model T (or at least part of one) that one of the downtown businesses is using as a sign.
It's been there a while and I'm guessing that someone else has posted a photo of it on here, but I can't say for sure.
A Model T parts/year expert I am certainly not, but this looks like a mishmash of parts to me. Is it? Or...is this a pretty tight grouping (year-wise) of pieces?
Very cool. Would like to see from different angles.
I can find out the owner of this. I used to know the owner unless it has changed ownership which I would not doubt. I think he had a car museum in an old filling station building in Fayetteville, Texas and his wife had an antique dress shop for ladies in Bellville, Texas.
It looks like a 1916 Model T.
Actual year of individual parts may differ if closely inspected, but from a distance there's nothing glaringly incorrect.
....except for the "pancake" Hassler arms sans springs. Terry, isn't that John Crane? He and wife have the clothing booth in the north building at March Chickasha. Of course, I could be wrong too
Those are actually a "helper spring" - not Hasslers. I have a set here that are a short multi-leaf cantilever springs.
George, wrong Crane. I was thinking of Stan Crane.
His name is Chuck Crane and he is a Model T and Model A guy. I have heard that he has moved out of the area but am not sure of that.
