That was a rough 14 years ! Updated to electric headlamps, dash veneer is de-laminating. Looks like the crank may have been replaced, what else ?? On its way to being a "bitsa" T.
Looks to me like part of the driver front fender is missing and back window is gone.
I'm not good at dating T's was guessing 1914.
Rich, that's good. The crank was meant to pull completely out the next stunt.
Vern, I'm not sure it's a '13. I can't tell which way the windshield is folded.
Clearly a '14 body with a '15 fear fender.
Were rear fenders crowned between the beads in '15 ?
Vern, did you see that other picture of the ripped roof T hanging precariously over the edge?
Same T ain't it? "The crank was meant to pull completely out the next stunt."
I look and look and can't find that thread...
And people drive/drove on roads where over the edge is hundreds of feet down or more. Yuck.
Could be an early 1915 production using 1914 body.
Mark, you're probably right.
How about that left front fender. Looks like Laurel and Hardy worked on it (shades of Two Tars).
I agree with Mark.
I found this from the Harold Lloyd 1924* movie "Girl Shy". This is the same T posted Sunday, September 17, 2017 - 03:58 pm: in the "Model T Funnies and Memes" thread. Harold is holding a crank in his right hand when it started, supposedly grabbed reverse, and went backwards off the cliff. Here's the reverse angle and a morbid photo, showing the rear.
I would like to have that to restore! I think I could give up at least three of my project cars for it. (The worse ones of course.)
Vern, first, thank you much for pointing me to "Girl Shy". Great movie, I enjoyed it immensely (as I tend to any Harold Lloyd movie !).
The scene with this "disposable" Model T was short . . . now I'm curious, where did the scene with that car come from that you posted in the "Funnies" thread ??
I'd have to watch it go down the hill into the rocks again, but it almost looks like the scene used another car that was designed to fall apart on the trip down the hill for the movie.
Here it is again
Aha. Thank you re-posting this Vern. :-)
Poor thing. I did see once that 90% of old cars were recycled then...
