I saw this car last weekend, and the owner said that it is based on a standard US Model T touring chassis that was sent to France and the body built there. He did say that the car was restored in France a number of years ago, and that it has been back in the US for several years now. The most obvious difference is the legroom in the back seat…maybe space for jump seats if you wanted.
Anyway, I thought it was kind of interesting…

This is a similar car I photographed at Neil Tuckett's place outside London in February. The rear half of the body is detachable to create a pickup if desired.

Funny that the french license plate is still sitting on the car. The last 75 tells us it was driving in Paris when it was in France.

Notice the red one has no doors on the left side. Same as Olivier's.
But Olivier's has a door or tailgate at the rear of the body so the rear seat can be removed and the car used as a staion wagon or truck.
The top also opens in the back.

Hello,

Here 2 examples of French body.
Many carriage-builders, divided on all the French territory bought frames to fit with body them in “commercial Torpedo” (Commercial Body).
Among its carriage-builders most known was “Carde” but there were also « Rousset », « Amar », « Voiture moderne », « Joly », « Martin et Garnier », « Meulemeester », « Privat », « Lepouzé », « Kosellek », « Renoux » ……..

All its body resembles each other, in general they are longer than the touring of Ford origin, and there is very often a door with the back of the car. This type of body was appreciated much in France. One could make use of it like a utility during the week and private car Sunday.

The red east can be a “Rousset” and the green one is certainly a “Rousset” like mine.

Currently, I make research on the carriage-builders who worked on the frames Ford model T, I already piled up some documents. I am thus in the search of all documents concerning the history of Ford T in France, that it is on the carriage-builders, the races, or other in order to make the synthesis of it.

Olivier

Carde


Amar


Ford moderne


Martin et Garnier


Privat



My 1924 "Rousset"
