1924
Story is in 1924 this company bought five chassis from Ford and had a company build five bodies, very unique.
Told this came out of Oregon.
The man I got this from started restoration on the chassis then quit.
What do you think? pretty cool, Bob

Very cool Bob! How long is it? It's hard to tell from the photos, but the length suggests to me it was made for a TT chassis.

Very cool. The modern signage (probably postwar) suggests they had it a long time and repainted it.

Fits standard T chassis, about 9' long, according to what I see in the paint if it was re painted they matched the color perfect - see pictures

It was the modern phone number that made me think it might have been repainted. But a closer look shows me that the old number has been painted over, so the rest may very well be original. Green stamps became popular in the thirties, but were around before that. So the decal could be T era or could have been added later.

What a great project! The body looks to be a wooden structure with steel panels over the top?

Looking at the graphics, I wonder if they were possibly applied post war when there was a vogue for "old timey" things. That type face would have been more at home in the old west than the roaring twenties.

Two things brings up questions: The cowl is numbered with "23", must have been a very large laundry to have 23 vehicles in the fleet. Second what is the bracket below the oval window and to the left on the outside of the body below the hook? Unique vehicle. I wonder what the phone number was, AT as in Atlantic?

I do not know almost like they had some kind of shelf they are on both sides, Bob

I used to go to Portland a lot and I think NE Broadway at Grand is an address in Portland Oregon. Rollie

Got the chassis now if anyone is interested it will be going up for sale, Bob

Broadway and Grand is a Portland intersection and the phone number is right for that area of town. It is across I-5 freeway from the MODA center sports arena where the Blazers play. Don, Portland, OR.
And yes AT does stand for Atlantic.

Try the folks at the Oregon Historical Society. They might be able to help.
