Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2013: OT - Australian Truck - would like to know make and model

Hello All

I was wanting to know if anybody can identify the make and model of the truck in the photos?

I found some old photo negatives in my late uncles paperwork and thought they may have been his Ford Model TT I am restoring. The photos were not of his truck, as the registration number on the seconded photo does not match the paperwork I have.

The history of the photos are from another uncles sawmill in Duaringa Queensland Australia.

Thank you for time
Colin

Hello Col,

Most of the truck looks like a TT. The bonnet ( Hood ) and possible the radiator don't look like Model T ?

Best regards, John

Colin, I thought the same as John, model TT except for the hood. But that gear lever is a bother. It's too far forward to be involved with an accessory transmission on a TT. More like it goes to a conventional gearbox on another make. Perhaps the donor hood covers a donor motor and transmission from another source.

Hope this helps,

Allan from down under.

Could it be a ''JUMBO'' three speed g/box conversion with a Chev or Overland bonnet and radiator?.

Don't think it's a TT, the wish bone is mounted under a sump.

Hello All

Thank you for the information so far.

I have supplied images that give a closer look at the bonnet and another of the sump.

My cousin was told it was a "Ford Mystery Overland". I thought she was wrong, as I though they were three different models of vehicle. Now looks like I may have egg on my face. :-)

Colin, I am inclined to think that the truck chassis and running gear is TT, along with the steering column/wheel. Beyond that, I think it has had an engine transplant, which also included the radiator etc.

Sounds like we are all on the same track. No model T pan sump or likely therefore engine. It appears to have some kind of bracket added on to attach the wishbone.
Could it be a model A engine, bonnet, and radiator? It is not a model A chassis.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Is the square tank under the driver at running board level a fuel tank?

I'm leaning with the others that say, TT chassis. Rear end looks correct,brake lever cross looks correct,wheels look correct. I'm going to say parts wore out and were replaced with parts that worked, a field rebuild of sorts.

It would help if you could get a photo from the front

Colin

It wasn't uncommon to put an overland motor & Gearbox in a t ford. There is a utility in Barcaldine Qld with the same conversion.





Also I have seen the remains of another similar in Central NSW
