Whoa. What is that beautiful body on the ground in front of the truck in the third photo? Square doors. Is that possibly a 1913 Model T body?
nope 17-22 just looks square in that pix.charley
Whatever year it is Bill, I'm sure it's what he tore off of the "T" so that he could install the box to make a touring into a "meat hauln' truck" out of it, huh?
Early in the 1917 model year if the body is from the truck.
The double row of buttons on the seat back continued into the early part of the 1917 model year but eventually the bottom row of buttons was eliminated.
I wonder if the right/rear fender matches the left/rear fender? I'm not sure if that R/R fender is damaged, or "custom fitted" to the new box body,.....???
Eric is of course correct - original upholstery in my June 1917 torpedo runabout shown here (seat cushion has been replaced).
That bottom picture in the original post looks like the pile in the foreground is comprised largely of wheel spokes. Do ya' reckon they were used for smoking meat? What do ya' reckon paint smoke would taste like? The pic above that shows a pile of cut & split wood, probably Hickory, probably for the same purpose.
