My brother is going after it today. He is 4 hours closer than I am. There was a cab in Wichita on Craigslist a little over a month ago. He will be going pretty close to Wichita but I didn't write the number down and the ad has expired.

Several people have seen this truck and all told me this project is beyond hope.


There's always someone around who is negative. I've seen alot worse. It's always interesting though, what some of you folks can do.

I don't recognize the radiator. Do you have a little history on T truck styles?

The radiator was definately not Model T but I have no idea what it was. It has a beautiful honeycomb design however the top and bottom tanks are rotted out badly.
Not up on Model T stuff at all so I been lurking around the MTFCOA site for a while. Guess Henry Ford started offering a steel cab for the T's in 1917 as an option. Before that cabs were built of wood by local truck body builders to meet the needs of the owners.

There was. Late '31 model A pickup with an all metal cab, it was made by Bud wheel company, had one. Now the fordoor Model A's we're either made by Murry, or Briggs, the Model A taxicab which was a different body was made by Ford.

Brother made the trip to pick up the bed - about 650 miles worth!
Well he gets there and guess what? :confuse:

The seller had the cab for the truck [that we also needed badly] in very good condition and made a deal that was just outstanding!!! :bounce:
Cab did not come with doors but everything else there and nice. Miracles do happen!
Pictures as soon as I can ~~~~~~

Good for you. A person deserves a break once in awhile. The timing couldn't have been better.
Also that was pretty darn nice of your brother to make the trip. :thumbs:

Lowell,
I may go to Cole Camp, MO that weekend. I may go to Jacksonville, IL that weekend. I may just be too busy changing the air in my tires that weekend. Not sure yet but I bet I can come up with something ENJOYABLE to do. :laughingteeth:
