That looks like it may be one of those "after" sedans? A kit to convert a touring car into a sedan (or a runabout into a coupe?).

Thanks Herb!

That picture is uniquely beautiful. I'd sure like to see the rest of that body with its "construction" above a Ford open belt line. Not exactly a "Califunny Top" !

This is a different one but somewhat similar that Jay treated us to.

The wrench the guy is using to run the head bolts down is probably the most common T era wrench I've had and run into. We had a bunch of these on the farm for some reason. When I inherited my Grandfathers 2 T's he had boxes of parts and tools and a bunch of those speed wrenches. Looking back I think I saved a few but the rest went to the salvage yard.

That link has great pictures ! Thanks, Rich !!
I have to confess I've never seen a Califunny Top in the flesh, installed on a car. I've seen the remains of a few, most didn't seem to be quite as "high-pockets" as these pictures. 40 years ago no one I knew wanted to restore one. When they showed up, owners were looking to replace the original top bows and curtains. In fairness, I doubt if they held up very well. Most remains looked as if they had shaken apart in use.
