well bill any help is good help i have no clue what model this roadster is ..... the best i could tell you is that it has 2 seats and a six cyl like i said it was given to me its all there i will be doing body and paint work on car soon the engine is done and should start with no problem (i hope) its been a few years since it ran i am guessing it gets leather seats but I'm not really sure the only reason i think this is cause its a roadster with no side windows and the seats would have needed to withstand the elements .any info would really help out

thanks -Jerred

Jerredb,

Are you looking for a pattern for the interior, or just a source of the leather, How is the top and do you have side curtains. Are you doing the work yourself or seking a contractor for the interior. Do you have a tag on the firewall, which should have model number information?

You should consider joining the BCA and either local chapter, Nutmeg in the New Haven area or Yankee in the Hartford area. Feel free to conact me at j.scheib@comcast.net or my cell phone 860.558.6764.

Jerred, Try LeBaron-Bonney in Amesbury, Ma. They are very helpful with any questions about any upholstery job and sell any and all the materials. I've dealt with them a few times and had good experiences. They are not just Ford people.

The 1920 roadster is Model K-44, 19,000 were built for domestic sales and 200 for export.

It has a 118" wheelbase. a 242 cu inch engine, bore and stroke 3-3/8 x 4-1/2 inches.

the K series was basicaly the same as the 1919 H series carried over into 1920.

The chassis/frame number is on the chassis near the fuel tank. I have a 1920 sedan with a localy built body.
