I think you could buy them this way from the factory.

Yes, you could buy them this way. I wonder if those two guys are photographers who own the studio behind them. Maybe they're off to have a photographers van body of some sort build for it.

It's a '15 or '16 style chassis. I would guess '16, since I think it was the first year with a black rubber wear surface on the tires. Still no thread, threads on the rear tires came in '17 and even later on the front tires.

Bruce's "Model T Ford" has a picture of the Ford line of products for the fall of 1916. The touring and roadster are 1917 models whereas the chassis still has a brass radiator with flat 1915-16 fenders.

It's a 1915 ford.

If it were a 1916 Ford, it would have an electric horn.

Note that it has a bulb and tubing.

Also, it appears to have an aluminum hogshead, giving more evidence for the chassis to be a 1915.

For whatever reason some early 1916 T's had aluminum hogsheads that were made in the 1911-13 style without the reinforcing ribs at the corner bolt holes. There is also a slight difference in the region above the access door where the flat upsloping area meets the curved section that covers the flywheel. It has a less crisp intersection. The photo below shows such a hogshead. Although the clutch pedal didn't make it all the way into the picture, it has a plain 1916-25 surface.



The chassis at the top of the thread may still be a 1915, but it does have some 1916 features to it, and that makes it interesting.

I've though about putting 'Photo shop" in the title of the thread.

Coil box latch were brass plated in 1915-1916. I'm not sure how long...
