I'm guessing model - in a scale larger than 1/25, maybe 1/16 or 1/12.

I wonder how passengers got into and out of that back seat, especially women in the long dresses of the time. It must have been awkward!

Real deal, based on the tire tread. But I've seen large scale models every bit as detailed.

Whether it's real or a model, there's a door in the middle behind the back seat.

THAT'S how the ladies got in. Lord forbid the lift heir dresses to get in the front. I've seen one like this at Henry Ford Museum.

Real deal. I was going to answer Sam's question about how folks got into the back, but Skip took care of that already. This body style was called a "Rear-Entry Tonneau". In some cases (although I'm not sure if Ford worked it this way), the rear body section was seperate from the main car and could be removed. This looks a lot like a Runabout with the additional rear seating area.

I took a close look at the rims and they appear to be a 1 piece casting so I am going with a model................................an excellent car in any case.

Interesting background on the real car, a 1903 Ford Model A...

Franklin Mint did a very nice 1/16 diecast for the company's 100th anniversary.
