Looks like it. Probably a quite late one - 1925-6 - with a modified grille.

:think: can it be German assembled*? And if yes, how this could be recognized?

*because this was filmed in the USSR. Quite likely, that many of the German origin or German-spec cars were brought there in 1945/46 by the Red Army.

So how do we list this?? It's an Erskine body on a Ford T chassis.

Like you would Royce 20/25 with body by Hooper. Rolls-Royce 20/25/Hooper.

So Ford Model T/Erskine.

But Erskine is a make of its own, not a chassisbuilder like Hooper (yes, the Metrocab...)

As the Ford is the chassis, maybe better to list it as 1922 Ford Model T Erskine body.

Hooper did not build chassis when the subject car was new.

I added that so you wouldn't have an argument to link the Metrocab as proof that Hooper, too, built a car of its own (which isn't exactly true...we aren't getting anywhere here)

And, in any case, I might have said Vanden Plas!

Btw, Ford Model T with Erskine body seems fine to me.

You're forgetting that this was filmed in Latvia, which was an independent country before WWII.

Looking at the various pictures, in which year did Ford’s build a Model T with longitudinal semi elliptic springs at the front?

None. As mentioned before, this is a Ford T body on an Erskine chassis.

If the body's not Ford and the chassis is not Ford, which bit is actually Ford?

The body, because Ts never had elliptic springs. How to list this?

Well, since the chassis is obviously not from a Ford, you do have a flying start.

:??: sorry, but this makes no sense. Where is the coherence between the Latuvian independence before 1940 and the lots of cars, confiscated after 1945 by the Red Army and the NKWD in the Soviet Zone and the former German areas? :??:

This car is so old that it may as well have been registered new in Latvia, in the 1920s (and later rebuilt) I think the cars confiscated by the Reds were rather big Horchs and Wanderers of the Wehrmacht.

The Horchs and Wanderers "of the Wehrmacht" were basically not origin Wehrmacht-cars (except the Kübelwagen-versions), they were confiscated -stolen- before by the Wehrmacht from private persons ot companies.
O.k., you may right with the topic of the age, that a T-Model was too old to be confiscated -either by the Red Army or the Wehrmacht-, but I don't know, which were the oldest vehicles, which has been confiscated. Surely noone took the survivors of the masses of different brands before the mega-inflation in 1923/1924. I just know, that the Wehrmacht did't took cars with two-stroke-engine and motorbikes with less than 250ccm, and IIRC not exotic imported cars.
