barn find story?

Hey, Im new here, and have a quick question. While cleaning out an old, unpaid storage shed at my work, I came across an old ford, I can get for cheap and resurrect, Ive restored many cars, although the oldest was a 66 fastback, my trouble is Im trying to identify it, since I didnt have a camera at the time, I dont yet have any pictures, let me do a quick description, as my hours and hours on the net, have not yet identified it. Its old, Im pretty good with cars, (50s,60s,70s) but I beleive it to be a model t, what year and model I dont know, its topless, and currently has no fenders, it has a 4 cyl flattie, sideways leafs for susp., wooden wheels and steering wheel, flat radiator, I saw it at the end of the day, so Im trying to recall from memory, it was very short, I sat in it and my left knee stuck out over the side, with me feet on the pedals (it is a full size model, just incredibly short, and it appears to be original, the closest thing Ive found is a speedster or some pics of track ts ive found, the weird thing is the back of the body its in a (UU) type shape with the curve of the (UU) serving as the seating area, there is no tank after the body, and I couldnt see where one was ever mounted, the interior was very small, and 2 people in it would be pretty close to one another, any ideas?
