Looks like one of the few 1912 Delivery cars, a late knock down Beaudette body (if I remember what John Regan has told us right.. ;) )

Another one parked ahead of it too. The truck in the front has a tail light but it appears to be missing on the other truck. Great pic.

Called a Pie Wagon also? Can't decide if I like them or not, but they sure are unique.

I'd love one but the garage door isn't tall enough. Same reason I don't have a C-Cab TT wrecker!

Val,
You can make the needed adjustments to the garage door with a chain saw. After all, what's more important, the door or a T? :-)

The hardest part would be finding an original Delivery car.. only about 4 known. Making a reasonably authentic repro would be possible, but not easy..

It looks like a 1912 OK, but then it looks like it is Right Hand Drive. Could it be an NRS delivery wagon?

It is left hand drive. Note the horn bulb on the drivers side.

I love 'C' cab delivery vans. They are very pretty and distinctively a model 'T'. I love them. Great photo with extremely rare rear detail.

Yes rear views of any car you are trying to restore are a most welcome find. I cannot tell if the vehicle is knock down version or not since the angle of the thing and the amount of mud on it kinda hides the details. I also cannot tell if it is an early or late version since the location of the carbide generator and horn tube are hiding the area where I might see if the body has the seat box reinforcement that was on the later versions. It is for sure a Ford 1912 Delivery car since it sports the round decal near the horn tube.

Something in history Hopewell N.J. is famous for.
