Plate seems to indicate 1922 or 3 ?

I'm no early expert... But doesn't the riser section below the rear seat make that car a pre-'13...? And the absence of the "buggy rail" make it post-'10...?

??? '11-'12 touring???

I'm interested to hear what the early gurus can make of it...

I think you're right Kevin, I meant to date the accident. It's interesting to me to learn how long these cars were kept in service "in the day". I wonder if that wooden body suffered less damage than the later metal-skinned ones would have? Tip 'er back up on the wheels and keep on driving !

What a shame this T got wrecked. If it was repaired it is now a "bitsa"

It faired better than this one from an earlier post.

I agree with Kevin. It would make a good parts car today! Maybe it could even be restored?

It has a GEMCO spare tire carrier and early tail lamp

Definitely restorable.

Reckon it got sideswiped by a train? A good reminder that it didn't take much to total a Model T!

That train related wreck musta just happened, it looks like that front wheel is still spinnin'!

Maybe the conductor took the picture from the back step of the caboose as it passed by?

1911-1912 is correct according to the rear fender configuration. While it looks intact I'll bet the doors didn't open and close right after that (top photo).
