Dan, I Think you borrowed a photo from my T barn.
That T Truck was assembled in my barn. My youngest son liked the chevy disk wheels and added the wrecker boom for an added touch.
He has lots of fun with the wrecker, thanks for posting the photo.

Willie in Houston; Did you post a picture of an ultra simple (but ultra cute) T speedster several years back? I believe it had maroon wood wheels and a flat aluminum or steel rear deck. If so, would you post another picture or send a PM to me with it? Thanks, Jeff P.

Yours is the first picture I've seen of the three-can "road flare" smudge pots (three cans stacked vertically next to the spare tire on the wrecker). I have a set mounted on my AA Stakebed which probably get more questions than the truck itself does.

Willie

Took these of your son's hauler at the Iowa nat'l meet two years back. He and his buddies were great help during the tour towing T's in distress.

Don't have anymore close-ups other than these pics. Maybe you can post the details of the hitch.

In reply to Dan and Paul, My son Luke and his brother Jeff who was one of the team in Clear Lake did most of the work on the wrecker. Luke will attempt to get some close-up photos of the hitch etc and E-mail the two of you
In reply to Jeff Perkins, no that was not my speedster. Mine has wire wheels and has not been on a tour yet.

Willie,

Please ask them boys of yours to get me some dimentions on that "cradle" that they use to lift the rear end of the cars.

I would really like to make one or ten up as they are really handy!!

Tell them Chuck said HI and Happy Bleated Thanksgiving to you and yours!!

Chuck
Currently at Mom's in the "Buick City"

Chuck, I will pass this on to Luke as he is our wrecker man.
Hope you had a good Turkey Day.
Willie
PS: It is always good to see you and some of the younger generation enjoying the Model T's.
Money, education, women and lots of things at a young age prevent the younger generation from getting into the old car hobby.
One of my sons friend Lewis become daddy on Wednesday before Thanksgiving. We have a partially restored car waiting for him when things get back to normal in his life. He was in Clear Lake with us.

There were some questions on a TT hitch. The pictures should be self explanatory.
Sorry it took so long to respond, but retirement keeps me away from the computer.

Here are some examples of the different tow bars and hitches that were use in the Model T days.
Lots of cars were converted to trailers for farm use. Some after market factory cast hitches were used and a lot more were back yard engineered.
One of the pictures is of the hitch used at the Clear Lake tour and also the rear end of the wrecker. I hope this answers some questions.
Willie

Paul, if you have any close-up pictures of the wrecker boom, my wrecker son would like to see them and the manufactor of the wrecker if known?
Just left click my name and the E-mail should come up.
Thanks Willie
