Since its dated Aug 1934 it could be any Model A, a 1932 Model B (four cylinder or V-8), a 1933 or 34 Ford V-8. and since its Aug 1934, maybe even a brand new 1935....... The poor old T would be out-paced by all of them ... (please, do not attack the author :-) :-)) ....... By Aug 1934 the poor old T was considered antiquated by most folks ...

Can anyone decipher what is written on the back?

It says

Dear George,
"We are with the Babbitts on this trip and had to cross some mountains. The Ford had to work to do it in high gear. I bet the Model T wouldn't do it"
Best wishes,
AL

Just says the Model T wouldn't do it in high gear. That's why we have Ruckstells. An extra 20 HP would surely make quite a difference.
