Thanks for this picture Erich

Can you imagine what it looked like in color? I don't suppose we will ever know but judging from the wonderful colors on surviving boxes accessories came in for T's I'll bet they were marvelous.

We tried to guess colors for this a few years ago. Not sure we even came close.

It must have been a popular accessory. I have the identical one, given to me by our local engine guru, Engine Joe Bell, and i love it. Very well made, takes a padlock, & mine is NOS. it don't git any better than that!

Great picture, but they for sure didn't run the name by a focus group.

Looks like that left rear fender was the result of a thrown "cap"(recapped tread for you younger guys<g>)at high(?)speed. The trucker guys on here know what I mean! Dave
