Can't say for sure, but this does look like someone tried to "upgrade" a Model T into a Model A. There are some later parts (tail-light, wheels) as well as a good copy of a Model A radiator cover (widow's peak done from a picture?)

I might say "FrankenCar" but then that would run down what obviously was someone's skill and mechanical ability outlet for good long time.

One imagines a mechanic in an offshore Ford Dealership - who would have good parts sources and the experience and ability to pull something like this off.

What does the rear end look like? Just for your info you can add multiple pictures to a single post. Go to the test forum and try it, https://www.fordbarn.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=13.

Joe K - Thanks for your reply. "Frankencar" is probably an accurate description of this car for most Model A or antique car owners. But in this country, where there are likely not more than 5 or so Model A's and only 2 known Model T's, even a "Frankencar" is appreciated. You would have to be pretty well off importing either car over here, since you could easily be paying 3 times what its worth after customs and duties... Reminds me of some 1970's jeep (that I read about) in the early 80's that had a Ferrari 308 engine in it, hence it was called a Jerrari. Although I personally would prefer a relatively original A or T, but that's what we have right now, so...

Charlie Stephens - yes, Thanks, I will give it a try. I will also try to get a shot of the rear end, just a problem of space right now.

Anyone else ?

The chassis looks like Model A from what you can see of it.

Itís a 26-7 Model T body placed on a Model A chassis. The chassis probably wasnít shortened .

Bob & tmiller6 - Thank you both guys !
I will try to crawl underneath to get shots of the chassis, axles, etc.. I need to gather all the clues so i can determine what it really is.
