The same cowl on this car which I had the pleasure of servicing some years ago.

Bill, that is a "collector car person's dream" to find a "BARN FIND" auto like the one pictured. Often wondered if there is any left to be found like this one ???

There's a very original '10 for sale on the HCCA website. This one was written up in the HCCA Gazette a couple of years ago. Nothing new except the tires, tubes, and horn bulb.

Amazingly, the "untouched" relics seem to keep appearing - who knows the number that have been put away and more or less forgotten ? Certainly we'll run out of 'em some day though.

Is this aesthetic only or is there some added functionality? Just curious.

I suppose making your '13 or '14 look like a latter Ford was an advantage back in the day. These seem a bit ugly to me. The '15 and latter cowl is a thing of beauty. I have saved this one in case I want to "temporarily" change the look of my '14.

Generally a car in that condition may reveal details about the timing of various changes made in production. That's valuable to folks who are interested in preserving the history of the Model T. Sometimes cars like this are more worn out than other components found piecemeal as they were discarded, but a mostly complete relic sure lessens the difficulty of searching for enough parts to complete a running car. Additionally, since examples like this one were stored away under cover, rust and decay are not infrequently minimal. So yes, I'd say there's a functional advantage to having a car like this one to work on, whether one chooses to go with a frame off "perfect" restoration, or preserve it in "as found" condition by making it mechanically sound to drive.

Hey, the first range Vent-a-Hood was born!
