Very nice and more practical than a TT.

TT closed cab on a T chassis. Big cab looks a little out of proportion on the car chassis. I could get over that as these cabs are comfortable for a man my size, much more so than a C-cab. Priced right I think.

I live in the area and don't know this car!!! I wonder where it has been hiding? Looks like a 26/7 hogs head and a distributor ignition system.

I always thought the chassis extension needed for a Warford would be about enough to make that combo look right.

You could haul lots of STUFF in that rig, Constantine. That might be just what you've been looking for. I think Mack has a good idea. And I agree with Erik, the price looks right.

Mack, that's what I did with my 1917 shooting brake. Rather than add 12" into the chassis, I joined two damaged chassis together, with the extra foot at the single join. It lets you build a longer body that still looks in proportion.

That truck shown does not look to be on an extended frame. The close relationship between the rear wheels and the running board is just like a standard car.

Allan from down under.

Mack, that's what I'm doing on my project. By using the cast iron warford with the u-joint in front I can add 16 1/4 inches in the frame. KGB

Thats not a bad price.

Keith, the cast iron Warford adds "15.750 to the driveline if it is not modified. I have shortened many shafts for these things and that is the dimension I use. I agree with Mack, that is just about right to put things in proportion.

If you take the box off a Model A pickup, the frame from the cab back is really short too. Nifty looking little flat bed.

When Erik Barrett says, "For a man my size", I think of the time he picked up a model A block with the crank in it and carried it about 30 feet and set in the back of my pickup.

Thanks Eric for the info, I really had not done a precise measurement so that gives me what I need. KGB
