I have attached an old photo and was wondering if the front bumper on this coupe was an original Ford bumper or possibly put on by the dealer when bought new? I am the second owner of this car and am in the restoration process. The bumpers were removed at some point and would like to get originals like the ones pictured.

Ford bumpers, no. Put on by dealer, maybe but probably not. They are aftermarket.

Is it a 27 it doesn't have a headlight bar.

license plate indicates 1926. Probably early 26 without bar.

Hello Guys:
Thanks for pointing that out, never noticed that.
My serial # 14464835 says built in Oct. 26 and my car has a headlight bar. Maybe not the same car.
I have almost all the original registrations which start in 1927. That is my great uncle on one running board, my grandfather on the other running board and my great aunt inside the car.

Steven, our Coupes have the same birthday.

One can see sunlight coming through the wooden spokes on the driver's side wheel. Further proof for it being a '26 Model T, besides the lack of a headlight crossbar. It's my understanding that virtually all 1927 closed bodied-Model T's came from the factory with wire wheels. Or has this also been disproved?

The 1927 Ford brochure "Greater Values than ever Before" notes the standard equipment of balloon tires on the Coupe, and Tudor, and only the Fordor is noted as standard with 5 wire wheels and balloon tires, :-)
