Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Bub Body Corporation Ford Coupe Body?
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By David Greenlees on Monday, February 01, 2016 - 02:14 pm:



On TheOldMotor.com today I have this photo posted of a car that is equipped with Clarence Sherman Johnston’s "Johnston Disc Wheel – Quickest Demountable Rim On Earth."

Two readers have commented that they believe it is a Ford with a Bub body. I have searched high and low looking for a Bub advertisement with a picture of this body, but have not been able to find one. I did find a snippet of a description of one in a "Motor" magazine dated 1922.

Thanks to anyone, who can help out with this mystery and post a good copy of a photo or ad.

It looks like it's made out of flat sheets of plywood. Hideous! :-)

I would love to find a Bub sport cab or a Bub speedster (car or body) because of the significance to the local history where I live.
The former Bub factory building was the main exhibit building for the Washington County Fair when I was a youngster in 4-H, and a highway department building the rest of the year. It was torn down a couple years ago.
If anyone knows what happened to the Bub from Minnesota pictured above ( I wasn't watching ebay when it was sold) or if anyone else knows of a Bub out there that might be available, please let me know.

Jim, I hope you find a Bub. It would be great to see a real one.
