I recently bought about 6 Model t's that had sat in the woods for about 50 + years. I'm noticing some have an auxillary trans. There's a T truck with a 5th wheel hitch, it has an aux trans and a roadster that also has one. The roadster has an interesting bracket stamped: Marshalltown Hollingsworth. The truck aux trans bracket is more basic than this, just a round tube bar. Any thoughts on the rarity of this bracket and trans?
Also there was a 2 speed rear axle with the parts. It doesn't have a Ruckstell tag that I can see anywhere.

Nice motor wheel, I would love to have that.
I think the bracket is very unusual, strictly aftermarket for Model T Ford. Transmission is not at all rare! Bracket was made to adapt a Chevrolet 490 transmission into a Model T Ford, usually the adaptation is homemade.
will. i have one just like it 1915 smith motor wheel,mine is in a lot better shape.charley
