None of them look like '26's or '27's to me! I do see the one with the nickel radiator shell, but it's front fenders do NOT look like like the "improved" '26 or '27 to me! (???)

For this picture,"improved car", must mean 1924-1925. As Ford would say, the new high radiator and hood, along with the fender valance and radiator apron make for a improved looking car.

What I find interesting is the differences in the rear windows on the various models. It looks like the one-man tops all have 2 windows, although on one car, it has ovals. The far one-man top appears to have larger windows than the close one. The two-man tops have three windows, but windows appear to be different sizes and spacing in these two examples. Does anyone think that at least three of the five touring models shown would already have replacement tops (which could explain the window variations), or perhaps the window size and placement wasn’t consistent from the factory (as a possible result of different suppliers).

I believe that Original Smith started a thread a couple of weeks ago on just this topic.

I believe that the Canadian made Fords after WW1 to mid 1920's used oval back light windows.
