Wasn't that built by the same company Ford left, and was reorganized as Cadillac?

Those headlights sure look like 1912 Cadillac sidelamps, electric...

The ID tag shown for this 1902 truck is from the Ford Motor Company. That company was not founded until 1903. The stylised Ford Motor Company script came even later.
In 1899, Henry Ford left Edison to start the Detroit Automobile Company. That company was supposed to build cars but the backers insisted upon building a delivery wagon. So Henry left, and the company folded (1900 I think).
Could this truck be one of those delivery wagons?
At the end of 1901 Henry and backers formed The Henry Ford Company. I don't believe that company actually got a vehicle to the market before Henry left (and taking the Henry Ford name with him). Later that company became Cadillac, which built cars.
So, now I'm really curious! What is this truck?

Intresting vehical but it aint no 1902
I would be very intrested to see the engine.Looks more like something built from those 1903 Oldsmobile plans and has been extended or something.
I want to see the engine.
If it aint a Briggs,It may have a old water hopper throttle governed engine in it to make it look more old.

Why are there not photos of the engine? It looks like a rope drive. There is probably a Briggs & Stratton or Wisconsin single cylinder engine under the seat.

Amazing how many designs Henry had worked out in 1902 that he kept for the Model T.

My understanding was the company was called the Henry Ford company, but Henry took back his name when he left the company, and it was called Cadillac. This was different from R.E. Olds, who when he left Oldsmobile, was unable to use his name for his new company, so they used his initials instead. I have no idea if this one is a fake or not, and if it was for real, it should have The Henry Ford Company", rather just "Ford".

As my Dad used to say about VW's, "If you have a wreck in one of those, you're the first one there."

it's based on a carriage chassis..the front axle is a typical iron/wood sandwich with T front axle ends grafted on..the leather dash and seat are all carriage bits..it seems to have a radiator below the seat..i'd guess there's a big stationary hit/miss engine lurking under there somewhere...not junk exactly but not a real car in any case.

The body tag looks like a repo of an original appearing tag that is on a locally owned N

"1902" plate

All this can be yours for the Low Low starting price of only $375,000. :-)

At any rate Rob, thanks for the clip. Between you and Ricks Surf City, (as well as many other members) I really enjoy the photo postings. Thanks again, John Berch

John,

Thanks, I really like your TT. I'm in Des Moines next week (farm show). Where in Iowa are you (and your truck).

Rob

Rob, I'm 35 miles south of Des Moines, and so is my truck. If you have a little down time, I'd buy you lunch and we could talk old cars. Let me know.

John,

Are you close to Indianola? Anyway, we'll have to talk. Farm shows get boring, I might have to take a drive down there (not like car shows).

My cell is 402-643-0235,

Rob "the thread highjacker"

Thanks for posting the video Rob...real or not, it's still a pretty neat truck. A little out of my price range though.
Bob

Bob,

I sure wouldn't think of trading this "truck" for the touring in your profile (nor Co Co). BTW, are you an Auburn, or Crimson Tide fan?

Rob

Rob,
CoCo trumps them both. AUBURN !!...bleed Orange & Blue.
Bob

I take it back about the headlights. With the better pix, they look more like E&J 466.

Check out the thread on Floorboards...

Ralph,
It would be nice to see a close up of the truck in the floorboard thread.
