Some of you might remember this TT:
Well, my friend Abd Alsalam, who is well known in the African overlander community, has just sent me pics of another old Ford that has turned up in Khartoum.
Must make my way back to Sudan (the north one, not south) some day as I'm convinced that Model T sandmobile is somewhere there. Anyone know the word for sandmobile in Arabic?
Sandmobile info here:
I love the flapping Port-A-Wall and the radiator cap.
Thank you for posting.

Around this end of the world when a cap comes up for sale, you need to check if it has a vent hole to see if it's a fuel tank one or a radiator one.
Oh That's Cool!
You guys think it's cool but in my country we couldn't give them away so now they're all gone..
Same in NZ, never an enthusiasts car, something your old Aunty drove & slightly amusing.
That one looks in good condition for that part of the world.
We dubbed them 'Snake trackers' here in South Australia. Once the steering became worn, it was impossible to keep them pointing in a straight line, so the driver was constantly feeling for the straight ahead position, going from one lock to the next. Mix that with a novice driver from Iran, Persia at the time, and a bunch of lads going to high school in the city, and you get a few hair raising moments!
Been there. Done that.

I had the rare open tourer version and loved it. My biggest old car regret is the day I sold it, I know where it is so I may try to get it back.
Snake tracker? Being a damper country we called them puddle-jumpers. That can be cured with panhard rods.
