Forgot to mention: no serial number. Doesn't look like there ever was one. Boss is smooth and clean.

That seems like the block was replaced. If it had been a complete engine, I think it would have had a number. Maybe there's disagreement about this, but Ford had the tradition of numbering engines. After they were installed, they became the number of the car, truck, or tractor. If factory-rebuilt engines were sold by Fordson, they got a new number out of a special series of numbers. I suppose the old number was ground off. I've seen that for motor vehicle titling purposes, the old number was supposed to be stamped on the new engine block by the dealer. Later Fords had the serial number stamped on the transmission housing, so that solved that problem.

Here is what I think I know. Steering gear appears to be a gear from a Model A Ford. Dash is well build fabricated copy. The real question is why. Maybe a really bad accident? No way to know but it was really well done.Interesting.
