Something odd about that tow vehicle the more I study it. Appears to have a touring body on a TT chassis. At first I couldn't reconcile the two man top with the box over the rear axle until I saw the TT worm drive rear axle.
It is interesting to see fenders on that trailer. "Jackson" trailers (Miles Mfg. Co. Jackson, Michigan) did not offer fenders on their trailers.
I think you're right, Dale.
most companies would build it your way so long as you could pay for it!!!!! charley
Trailer wheels look much different than the wheels on the "T" which is confirmed by the even more obvious difference in size between the two spare tires carried on the running board.
i would say the trailer tire and the frt wheel on the car are the same size.the inside spare would be for the truck wheels. charley
I have seen quite a few TT trucks with runabout bodies installed. I have seen a couple with the front half of a touring. I think that is the first one I have seen with a whole touring body.
Great photo Jay! Thanks.
I am inclined to think that the trailer was made by the F.P Lyons Iron Works of Manchester, NH.
T Trailer on Craig's List.
Here's a link to a company that builds solid rubber tire buggy wheels, like the ones on the Jackson trailer. I wonder how the trailer would ride on buggy wheels. Would it be okay for pulling down the highway at 30-40 MPH?
That box on the back of the Model T in the first photo is interesting. I wonder if a chassis on a touring car could be extended like that without using a TT frame?
