I'll say by that starter motor at the rear wheel, he just finished placing the hogshead after changing bands, and looking at that little Bendix lock washer wondering if it can be re-used :-)

I thought is a 1927... I love the picture because we feel the real life at the moment. :-)

Not sure what that can is in the foreground, but if were me in the photo I'd be about two seconds away from tripping over the can and spilling the contents into the weeds.

It looks like a '24 or '25 Fordor with a headlight bar and 21" wheels.

Spindles are not dropped, plug wires to firewall, nickel headlight rings and rad shell, split windshield, rad apron missing, extra demount-able, inner rim in the yard.
Ya'll guys have made me sick...as i could not have noticed this stuff a year ago.

The easiest tell-tale between the 26-27 Fordors and the earlier ones, is the bottom of the windshield. This earlier car has the rectangle shaped one, and the body side moulding continues under the windshield.

Could he have done that work without oil and grease stains all over his cloths?

Wonder how well that radiator works?

Looks like the electric company's meter readers were a lot taller in those days.

My dyslexia sometimes treats me to anticipating different images from the titles than what they really are. I read "Wretching On The Old Ford".

Rich :oO

Radiator definitely not moving much air. And meter readers had to bring a ladder in those days. Great photo, a moment in a persons life locked for prosperity.

Thanks Rich B. I had,'t realized I spelt it wrong until I saw your correct spelling.

At least they don't need a Winter front on that radiator.

What an inspiring photo. And worth waiting for.

Rich
