On the original Show Us Your Doodlebug or Conversion Tractor thread last year, someone posted a picture of a T, resembling a doodlebug, that was built by Ford for Ford factory use (I have included a copy of that picture below). This weekend, I was looking through my copy of Ford Bryan's book on the Rouge and noticed pictures of three other purpose-built factory vehicles used by Ford: a '28/'29 Model AA with a radically shortened wheelbase and hard-rubber, tractor-style wheels being used as a Ford Factory lunch cart tug; a '32 BB with a chrome (!) radiator shell being used as a factory fire truck; a mid-30s V-8 truck of some type being used as a Ford Factory photography support vehicle. This got me wondering what one-off vehicles are surviving out that are legitimate Ford-built factory support cars/trucks? Any Ts? Pictures of specialized Ts built by Ford for factory use (like the one below) would also be interesting.
