TT chassis, running board brackets together, worm drive rear axle.

Maybe new delivery?

But that hood sure has taken a wham or kick by a mule offloading it! Bet the photo is for an insurance claim.....

Note for Ton Trucks it is an early TT (3 produced 1917, 41,105 in 1918, and 70,816 during 1919 when the change to the below the axle wishbone occurred) as it has the wishbone above the axle. Ref: http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/doc19.htm

It says:

APR 14, 1919 Acc. 235, Box 39, #385, Ford Archives

"From this date two distinct designs of front radius rods, together with front spring perches, right and left, one on the Model T and the other on Model TT.

"The Model TT design will be assembled beneath the axle, instead of above the axle through the spring perch as heretofore.

"Although it would be possible to use the Model T design on the Model TT, we request this be resorted to only in case of a shortage serious enough to threaten loss of production."

Based on the paint condition -- new delivery makes sense. It would not be very useful without some type of body/seat etc. and those would have been added quickly after the chassis was purchased.

It also appears to have the solid rubber rear tires.

Respectfully submitted,
