I have had this rolling frame for about 20 years. It was in the pasture when we bought the place. Can anyone tell me what it is?

It's a 1926 or 1927 Model T frame with a Model A rear axle in it. Looks like the whole thing was used as a chassis for a farm wagon. Looks like the tongue is a made over T front axle.

If you look and the top left of the frame about 3 ft from the front you may see a number that would date it.

Any idea of value? Wife wants it gone and I hate to scrap it if someone could use the parts.

Farm wagon special. Folks used T frames over the years and made a lot of these.

Use to be common at farm auctions years ago. It got to the point they went for scrap when they wouldn't sell.

They come in all shapes and configurations that farmers would come up with.

Might go for around 100-200 at a swap meet since its a 26-27 frame.

"Wife wants it gone." Maybe that's why I never married.

They use to call them a Hoover Wagon, because no one could aford gasoline in those days.
