That is quite a load for that rear spring. They might want to add a leaf or two before filling that tank. Fun to see it.

I will have to go check it out. Volo Car Museum is not that far from my home.

Cheers,

Hope that they don't get a flat tire. The accessory wheels on the truck have 5 lugs, the spare only has 4.
Cute truck.

The varnished wood just looks contrived. No commercial operator would
set themself up for that kind of maintenance. Too many modern day old car
people sip from the "cutesy Kool-aid" bowl.

I think the tank is a homemade fantasy piece. I've never seen one that small. I have a very small one that is an oval two-compartment tank. I believe mine is about 200 gallons and it would be way too heavy for a car chassis. I agree with Burger that it looks contrived. I have NOT seen very many Model T tankers that were original gas haulers. Most of them are put together pieces that don't look much like what the real ones did.
