I am new to the hobby and learning ( slowly)
I haven't seen this set up before
I'm not sure what you mean by "set up", but it is a Model T Ton Truck (TT) that looks to be mostly stock. They were produced from 1918 until 1927. The only things I noticed in the pictures that are not stock are:
1. The wood cab and bed are aftermarket as are all TT cab and beds of that vintage. Ford didn't offer any cab or bed until later. For the first few years of TT production the trucks were sold only as a running chassis, fenders and hood only. Bed and cab had to be obtained elsewhere.
2. There's some sort of a non-ford magneto mounted on the left front of the engine. I would imagine the Ford magneto failed and this was the "repair" to get it running again. (Just guessing as to reason.)
3. The rear fenders are a little mysterious. I don't know what they're from.
I hope this helps a little.
What would that convert to in $'s ?
1GBP = 1.61 USD
Sorry for being vague. I meant the magneto, etc set up
It's a chain drive setup for the magneto - likely homemade on the farm - but a similar system was marketed by Bosh in Sweden in 1924:
It could be a starter-Mag(or gen) combo that was an after market for the non starter cars(&trucks)
there was a post about them here not long ago.
No, it's a regular high tension magneto - not big enough to hold a starter inside.
Here is the engine picture from the ad:
That looks like a genuine after-market mag drive. I've seen a couple aluminum castings like that. Nice surviving early truck.
Drive carefully, and enjoy the holidays! W2
