    defiantly not a Model T transmission and the bodies in the far end of the photo suggest later A's as well the roundness almost suggests the 32 Brookville bodies for the model B except the smaller more rectangle rear windows are more 29 or 30
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    There is a radiator grille hanging upside down near the back that definitely looks like a 31.
