Tha owner of this C Cab claims it to be a late 27. I did not get a chance to check the serno, or look for any other differences, but next time I go there, I will.
I have seen the later C cabs with the reinforcing brace on the side. It would be interesting to find out just what year that one is. That side brace probably did help with structural integrity. The bottom photo looks like what happens without them.
The roof wood is replaced. The small bracket that is just at the top of the side reinforcement is actually the rear side curtain support (the one that originally had felt riveted to it). Also, there is steel channel used as cross pieces to support the roof strips. The front corner bracket is home made. Any more pictures of the whole truck?
No other pics, except different views of same.
Justin, your clips are in the mail.
Don these are pictures of the 1926 C-cab top that showed up in early 1926. The C-Cab was dropped from the line at the beginning of August 1926.
Apparently 19 of these were shown to be sold as 1927 models according to ford records.
Did it have an oval switch plate?
(That's considered a 1927 model year sign for TT trucks)
My Model A has chicken wire in the top. I'm not surprised to see that in a 1927 Ford.
