Is that Jane Fonda behind the wheel?

Where in the world is that front running board truss rod going. Something is askew on the far side.

Otherwise, a fine car and delightful looking people.

Noticed the bed on this T is the same as the one on our '14, Otis. I was told the bed on our T was ordered from Sears but haven't been able to document that. Any idea regarding the date on this picture and where this bed came from? Sears?

Can't add anything about the bed manufacturer, but Otis is one COOL truck!!

John, I can see the shadow of what used to say service on the bed of your truck...

John, Seeing you only live and hour away from Clute, What are the chances this is the same bed?

The location of the ghost lettering of "service" on the side of Otis' bed compares well to the period pic lettering, but the fonts appear to be different.

The period pic bed has what appear to be a row of rivets (or maybe snaps?) near the bottom.

The rails sure look similar if not identical!

Looks like a job for super-sleuth Rob Heyen. :-)

Well, Otis came from a farm in Michigan so probably not the same. Also, Otis began life as a touring, you can still see the door latch and the robe rail.

Sure do hope someone has seen a pickup bed like this and has some information on where they were made. I have a 1927 Sears catalog and they were selling pickup bed kits then for less than $10.00 but it was a different style bed than the 2 shown here. Anyone have an earlier Sears catalog? The bed in the original post here is the first one, other than ours, that I've seen.
