Advertisement for a flat deck with rail from Ford, in "The Ford Times". I don't believe I've ever seen one on a car, has anyone else?
I have seen them. Only two I know that are original. Paul Padlo had one but last I talked to him at Hershey he said he sold it. The other i think is
in California. I have one but not sure if it is an original.
They give the car an entirely different look. I'm surprised there aren't period photos with them (maybe there are). Looks like a good way to carry a little more "stuff" on your car.
I have seen photos of one like that but can't seem to lay hands on it right now. In any case there were several mail order conversions for your T runabout.
This one's a late 1912 commercial runabout with a store bought pickup bed accessory.
Not sure who's car this is but here is a brass railing.
Found it in the 1910 factory brochure. Wish I could buy one for that price today!
I have the same brochure. Just got back from Florida so I didn't have time to dig it out.
Thanks for posting it.
So if I understand correctly you would remove the Mother-in-Law seat and add the flat deck in order to carry packages and supplies?
Or you could remove the rear seat of your 1910 tourabout. Same effect.
Wow, Royce ... there's some pretty nice detail in that photo!
I was thinking about putting one on my 12 roadster but decided on the MIL seat instead. I spoke Dan Mari, who had made one for himself, about making me one. That was some years back, I don't know if he is still interested in making them or not.
