Just take one look at the Members link on our website and you can see that there are many different types of Model T body styles. Some have two doors, some have four doors and some might not have any doors at all. Some have tops and others don't. Same thing goes for the windows - some have 'em and some don't.
So how can you tell one type of Model T from the other? The following illustrations, courtesy of Cartouche, serve as an excellent resource for identification of body styles.
Are you ready to test your knowledge? Left click and drag the red words at the bottom of the illustrations with your mouse and place them under the correct body style. To check your answers, slide your mouse across the picture.
