I think at one time most doctors made house calls and it was preferred to have an enclosed coupe and they (coupes) got that nickname.

And it's hardly a 1917. That would be a rare beast indeed.

I'd say a 1923 to 1925.

The engine number is for a 1917, and the title says 1917, but my friend, the owner, and I believe it is older, but we do not know what year it is, maybe 1923 to 1925. It still is a very good Model T.

It looks like a beautiful T Ford! Nicer than mine. One would have to look very closely to know if anything on that car is 1917. The Body is clearly a 1924 model or 1925 model only. My coupe looks just like that (only an older restoration showing its age) and was built in April '24. Most likely, this coupe is a '24 solely based upon the 30X3.5 wheels and tires. While they were available in the 1925 models, most '25s got the new style 21 inch lower pressure "balloon" tires. One thing you may be able to tell, is that the '24 coupes had heavier wood frame doors, the '25 coupes mostly had steel frame doors which were lighter but rattle more. The '25 main body was still wood framed and nearly identical to the '24.

As to the chassis? There are a couple dozen minor and major changes between 1917 and 1925 that could narrow down the years of the car or parts. Demountable wheels and starter were not available until 1919, although those often got changed later.

One can wonder how and why so many people have gotten the years of so many cars so very wrong? But a lot of people have.
