The thickness of the remaining paint on mine wass proof of that. http://tenwheel.com/view/4033-1925_white_yellowstone_park_touring...

Re: Water inlet not T or A could it be V/8

Here is what Mike's is offering today. I am guessing yours was an after market accessory.
Both numbers:B 8275-B and 18 825 (Connection, cylinder water inlet) (4cyl) Pass, Comm are listed as 28-34. I believe they are the same for all years and all Ford offered.

This is the other front wheel. It has somewhat survived the gobby welds and bright paint. The pink was probably a red that fadded. I have only seen one Pink model T. It was scary fast!

"Helena Hall Helena Mont." I suppose this was Mom arriving at Carroll College in about 1929. I have seen Grampa's T loaded with camping gear like that in other photos. If that is a banner on the back curtain I can't read it. A journey from somewhere in Wyoming to Helena would have been an adventure....

Googling A. L. Hansen door latch brought up this image with no pertinent information. While the handle looks similar to a model A handle there were many garage door and various handles that look like that. A. L. Hansen has made industrial hardware since 1920. It could be that some car maker used it....

Very true Wayne. There isn't a lot of incentive for ghosts to exercise. They don't need to worry about their heath or appearance. Finding something they like to do such as motorcycling could be the key.
