    I could be wrong I'm just going by what I was told by the dude who I got it from . I really don't care , but I am curious . It came in 8pieces so I can't be sure they were all from the same year or for that matter , even the same make . Here are a couple more pics . I know the dash is a T for sure .

    Yeah, its a Ford T. Just not sure of what year. I can tell you it is older than 1926. Probably a 23-25......shouldnt be too hard to find what year...Do a Google!!...... Nice start to a cool rod!!

    Thanks T42 . Love that pic Rusted 40 !!! Here is some guys T off of another forum . This is the amount of chop I'm doing this weekend I had a frame all ready but the deal went south so I'm going to make one . The motor ran strong when I pulled it and the tranny worked fine but you know how auto boxes are when they have sat , so we'll see . The item I'm going to have a hard time getting ( POVERTY IS MY MIDDLE NAME ) , bartering for is a drop front axel

    this chopped one you're showing is a 26 or 27 T.....

    Now according to the guy selling this body I found on ebay, its a 1925 and it looks just like yours. But it would look just as good as that 27 with a serious chop outta it!!....
