A seat cushion would be a nice addition.
I don't see a battery or headlights.
Yeah, no headlights is an odd thing. It's right hand drive. I can't get a clear enough look at the lettering on the side of the cab to tell if there's a clue as to where it was.
Very cool truck! Thanks Jay!
A lot of TT's were bought without starters and generators (like mine), but without headlights is unusual. If it's not used at night I wonder why it has side lamps.
It seems early practice for a lot of cars/trucks was cowl lights and nothing else.
Odd on a T, but many S-N-R's and same period other makes were un-equipped
this way, or had no lights at all.
We had an old codger in my town when I was younger that "planked" the seats
in his modern cars ... torn fabric no problem, just lay in some mill slabs and call
it good ! They were well polished, but looked mighty UN-cushy ! This is the same
guy who still had outdoor plumbing IN TOWN in 1990 and brought all his water on
site from his river property out of town, grew his own food, etc.
IMHO someone must have removed the headlights that came with this truck. It would be hard to believe there were any fender irons or fenders produced by Ford absent the headlight bracket mounting holes.
It sure looks new for a damage-motivated removal. Very queer, this.
Only used in he daytime.
It's easy to accept that it was used only in the daytime, but that doesn't explain why anyone would go to the trouble of removing the headlights. After all, you never know when a night trip may be necessary.
Maybe they were not needed and some other T or TT needed a damaged set replaced?????
It is probably Amish. They rip the electric out of everything.
So, how do they fire the spark plugs?
They just finished the body build and paint job and have'nt replaced them.
I think their sect allows for AC or DC, just not both
That says J.H.Cockrane and company. He founded Overnite Express, The Old Motor photo will enlarge enough to read the name. This is probably a starter truck bought and dolled up on a shoestring budget to give a good impression.http://www.automotivehalloffame.org/inductee/j-harwood-cochrane/30/
If you look at the sills/runners under the bed i doubt it will ever see any use?? Bud in Wheeler,Mi.
