The view from the front of the car makes it look bigger than it really was!

I'm guessing that the wall mounted gas lamp uses the same source as the headlamps.

And a sound system, too!

The photo is from a postcard printed by the owners here is the card and the details, the camper has an extension Ford-a-truck type extension that's why it appears longer it is.

What a strange radiator! And I think my favorite thing about this rig is the turn signals!

In reading the "specs" provided, and considering what appear to be solid rubber tires, can you imagine how that thing rode? Literally, "like a lumber wagon" for sure! And just think; no such things as paper plates or Tupperware in those days either! Must have used tin cups and tin plates instead of the good china, huh?

The "specs" also say,...."Ford Touring Car - Truck Attachment - Geared to: 15 miles per hour". In looking at the chain drive, and "guesstimating" the size of the large "driven" sprocket as compared to the "drive" sprocket, I'd assume that the chain drive set-up is where the vehicle is "geared down" to 15 mph. (Chain drive looks like maybe about 3 to 1) Again, with solid rubber tires and those horrible roads of the day, I'd doubt anyone would want to go any faster than 15 mph!

Interesting post Peter,....thanx for sharing,......harold
