    That's the front half of a Early 20s T touring. Yes it does have rodding potential. It would make a great early car or 3 springer.

    I don't believe that's a Model "T" body. It looks more like an early Dodge to me. And I agree that it could be put to better use than a planter!

    No, not Model T. As "tub" points out, it does look early Dodge but other makes had similar curved cowls.

    That is a 22/23 dodge touring body.
    I used a cowl just like that to build this. Although it doesn't look like it. image.jpg

    That looks a lot like the 1917 Dodge Brothers Touring Car that I had for a while. The handle in the back seat and the dash are big clues.

    Good thick sheet metal and a great look that I thought would go great with a track nose. Finding the doors can be a challenge but not unobtanium.

    75% of all pre 1928 bodies show on the HAMB in "what is this body?" posts are Dodges.

    The other 25% are “no idea, probably a dodge”
     
  17. Fun fact: George Bailey/Jimmy Stewart drove a 1919 Dodge in "It's a Wonderful Life".

  18. Sorry Rusty Rocket but patmanta got it closer by one year. Patmanta your prize is, give yourself a pat on the back.
    Yes I agree it is more than rod able, maybe not restorable but some guys on here have started with a lot less and are artists with that sheet metal so yes it is a waste. Given the state of the vehicles in the museum though I can see why they say that and here is an example which is in Fairbanks Alaska. Vacation was great! IMG_1081.JPG IMG_1072.JPG
    Thanks everyone for your time and I hope that you enjoyed this just a little bit.
