More great photos! I like the two with the heavy duty front wheels. There have been a few questions asked on older threads about such wheels. I know there were wheels like that offered as after-market in the USA. There seems to be doubt about factory offerings in Canada. Those wheels seem to be most common in Australia and NZ. Has anybody there figured out what the deal was?
thank you Dane H!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Wayne, in my youth I passed up such a truck. It was all complete and today it would be one of those vehicles to be preserved rather than restored. It was a 26-7 model. I believe these late model TT's came with such equipment so there was need for just one spare. Canada ahead of the game again!
I could be wrong, again.
Allan from down under.
Ford Australia offered the wheels on their TT chassis as an extra in 1926/27.
You will note this truck is labelled NSW ( New South Wales) one of the states in Australia.
Each other state offered a different body style but with the same option of wheels.
Great stuff again! Thanks Peter K and Allen B as well as Dane H for several wonderful threads of photos!
