Okay, so it was just a photo of a Model K (at least I think it is a K). I was at an 80th birthday party of a relative today and was looking through a photo album that was on display. The photo was taken in an area just north of Pittsburgh, PA. I believe the plate to be either 1910 or 1914 based on the dark color but I believe it is a 1910 based on the condition of the car.
Did any K come with that many hood louvers?
I believe that is a Winton.
Definitely a Winton.
Walter, I believe that you are correct. It does really have a lot in common with the K to my untrained eye. Thanks for the correction.
Model K and the Winton 6-16 have similar lines. No hood louvers and the crank through the radiator (when visible) are two things I look for to distinguish the two models.
Another giveaway is the gear reduction box at the top of the K steering column, and long tapered brass column.
This is only photo I've found of a K (1906 model, with victoria body) with hood openings. Ford designed the K with rear engine flywheel with fan style blades to help pull air through the engine compartment from the radiator. Louvered hood sides would defeat that purpose. With the dust pan on and hood closed quite a bit of air moves through the engine compartment, exiting behind the dust pan.
I don't think I'd care for all the oil that would run out with open louvers on a hood.
