Found this while browsing my local craigslist. Any ideas of the origin of the body?

1923 T?

The chassis, or some of it, may actually be a 1923 Ford. But the body appears to be home made, possibly with seats from an early car or carriage. The top is also a creative exercise. One thing is certain. No Model T ever came from a Ford factory looking like this.

This might make a good wheelie car one other contributor was looking for with a couple hundred pounds in the back seat behind the rear wheels. Just a thought

If you had a bed and breakfast on a lot of scenic acreage this would be a fantastic way to provide tours.

Cute. Silly. Could be fun.
A lot nicer than the supposedly '14 tourabout someone linked on another website a couple days ago.

Reproduction buggy seats made of fiberglass are readily available off the shelf.

That body, including the top, are probably recent creations - within the past 25 years. There are a number of buggy makers around the country who could have built that body for a customer.

A fun homemade T built up from a 23-25 chassis.

Too bad what is under the hood and that radiator does not match the fine job on the outside. Still kinda neat. Seat covers reminds me of a lot of Model A's that were done in the 70's and 80's.
