Definitely a Ford Model T, in looking at the details, maybe a 1910 model.

Thanks fintail - I also thought that and googled model T pictures. One of the things I noticed was the front support for the windshield for model Ts seemed to be all straight. This one has a slight curve in it. Do you know if any model Ts had this curve?

That is probably something done by the owner - I noticed the curved supports too. Perhaps these are aftermarket items - Model Ts had a huge amount of available accessories, or maybe were just bent, as cars had a harsh life then.
The fenders and radiator shell appear to be definite Model T to me, and the horizontal line on the rear door is only through the 1910 model - rear door from 1911 onward was smooth. If you notice, the car also lacks an actual front door beside the spare tire - the car appears to have an accessory leather/treated cloth cover (which dates it pre-1912).

I agree with Fintail - in that era, you bought the car, and often went elsewhere for things like the windshield. Our family's 1911 Regal had many 'aftermarket' parts. That's how things were done back then.

This is my last car to try and identify. I have tried Google images but can not find anything that looks like this.

Looks a lot like a 4 door version of this 1938 Ford:

The hubcaps and headlights are very distinctly Ford.

Thanks texases - that's it. I found a 4 door version of it online and it looks just like it. It is a 1938 Ford Deluxe

"The hubcaps and headlights are very distinctly Ford. "
I didn't realize the hubcaps were also a clue, I just went off the headlights. Now I know.
