It’s remarkable that there were so many changes to the model t so early on. What’s also amazing that they were able to correct all of these things before the car gained a bad reputation! Automakers simply cannot keep up with things these days! I have always read that the early cars could almost be their own model and it’s very clear they could have been.

I owned a very early 1909 front spring for a while. It still had the original red paint on it and striping. The first leaf, after the main leaf was tapered too.
