That's a pretty neat T. I don't believe I've seen very many 1926/27 improved cars that were sold as a running chassis with a custom body.

I like the way the spare tire is carried underneath. Don't think I've ever seen that in an old photo.

Jay - Another great photo!

Henry - Even nowadays, among all of the restored/preserved Model "T's that we see, depot hacks and hucksters usually have a certain "look" to them that seems to be pretty uniform, and this photo is pretty typical, what with the usual three or four rows of what appears to be individual little "panels" that make up the sides of the body. And for some reason, I'm pretty sure the the "new improved" '26-'27 Model "T's are seldom seen restored as depot hacks or hucksters. That's one reason I kinda' like my '27 depot hack as it's "a bit different". (See my profile photo) Actually, Frank Harris (who knew my depot hack when it belonged to the late Pete Cosner) has told me that my '27 should more correctly be referred to as a "shooting brake". However, for some reason, that seems to me more like a British term,.....whatever,.......FWIW,.......harold

What is the term "Shooting Brake" supposed to mean ???

I'm not all that sure either Burger, but as I understand it, it's a British term for a sort of "estate wagon" that was used for some kind of high society hunting or sport shooting kind of thing I guess. It was new to me too when Frank Harris told me that. I'm stick'n with "depot hack",......harold
