I don't know what it is but the front end needs aligned. That front tire is nearly bald.

But to answer your question, I think it is around a 1920 Model T tourer. The 6 vents on the hood tells me it is a Model T. The little light thingie right by the windshield tells me it is pre 21 [real headlights]. But it looks more fit and finished than an older 08-15ish.

That is a start.

EDIT, second look spots dark headlights on your pic. that might put it in 21-24 range. The little lamp on the A pillar still is a mystery. This is the 10 Millionth Model T from 1924.
