Brass pickup

Here's a photo I saw posted at Facebook without any info. The T might be a 1916 since the headlight rims looks painted, but much has been altered when it was changed into a pick up truck so the headlamps may also have been changed?
I wonder if the cab is homebuilt or if it comes from an early coupe of some sort? Anyway, it's very early for a closed cab pickup.

Fordson is a very early one (ladder-style radiator sides, 6-spoke rear wheels).

LOL it's ok Roger. I only noticed the title once I read your proofread comment - when I clicked on the thread I had already written the title off as a Swedish-English thing. If you hadn't said anything I doubt anyone else would notice either.

The fenders and bulb horn say before 1915.

The T is a 1913 or 1914 chassis with a much earlier coupe body adapted. It looks a lot like a Model S coupe body, which was a body that was made by an outside contractor such as Wilson or Beaudette for Ford and other chassis builders.

There's a similar body at the Henry Ford museum, I think its on a Reo or other small car from about 1906.
