Help Identifying Old Ford

Hi everyone.

I'm a researcher at the Johns Hopkins University, and I'm trying to determine the date of a historic photo. The photo has a car in it, which I believe is a Ford. I was hoping that someone might be able to identify the model year of the car, which would give me a ballpark for the age of the photo. Here's the car:



Any ideas?
Thanks in advance
Tom

Re: Help Identifying Old Ford

I looks like a Model T Touring car. This particular model as seen in this photo was a 1924 model.


The 1924 Fords, introduced in summer 1923. These models continued until the 1926 models in the summer of 1925 with minor modifications.


I don't know much about these early automobiles but I would like to own one.

Hope this helps

Re: Help Identifying Old Ford

I am not a car expert but it does not look like a Ford to me. The front fenders are to rounded. The Model T had sort of a "flat" front on them. (See the picture above). Also the rear hub (on the real axle between the wheels) looks like it is to big for a Model T. I would guess it might be some other brand and could be a late 1920 or early 1930. Reason for this assumption if the way the people are dressed and Ford started to have come other competition for the Model T from other vendors about that time.

Good luck.

That isn't a Ford, Model A's and newer had wire wheels, and that has wooden but it is definitely not a T either.

Re: Help Identifying Old Ford

I think a 25-27 Chevrolet would be much more likely. Mostly based on the size of the car and the look/shape of the front end and windshield assembly.

Note that I said likely: The lines where the windshield/cowl/door sills are not the same. This could be due to model year or even brand. There were many many more car manufacturers then then there are now. The companies of today and their 'brands' were all separate companies back then.

Could even be a 1915 Dodge Brothers, doubtful though as the car in the pic looks larger.
