Love the color !

Shouldn't the rims be wood ?

 

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage"

I've never seen a wire spoked wheel with wooden rim.

Wonderful T!!

A popular accessory during that era were "Buffalo" wire wheels with steel rims and hubs. They were a true wire wheel looking more like a bicycle wheel and were pretty expensive, they're rare as hen's teeth today. The steel spoke wheels didn't come in until 1926.

These look more like steel spoke and were probably switched by the owner...

I like the fact that the chassis and suspension components are metal rather than plastic .At scale dimensions they are much more sturdy than their plastic counterparts

The Hubleys are a lot of fun to build. The national Model T and A clubs have Hubley races at their events using tracks that look like the Boy Scout Pine Wood Derby tracks. They have age groups, Racer, and "show car" categories.
