Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Accessory battery box for non starter car

┼ke Ísterdahl just bought an accessory battery box for non starter T's that is supposed to sit beside the tank on the LH side. It fits to be fastened to a body bracket on his 1915. Inside dimensions 2-3/4" x 10-1/2"
No markings on the box. The previous owner found it in USA.

Has anyone seen any advertising that tells who made it?

box 1

box 2

Roger, I've only seen them on Fordsons and they're referred to as "Hot Shot" boxes. Fordson House in Escanaba makes a repop of them.

That is for the old telephone batteries, or Hot Shots.

By the way, the one you pictured above looks like it is set up for a Fordson - that bracket mounts where the engine is bolted up to the transmission.

OK, thanks, I'll tell him.
So it's a standard Fordson part, then?

It was an accessory for a Fordson Roger. Not standard factory equipment.

This is the battery box on one of my Fordsons

Meili-Blumberg was still there in New Holstein a few years ago, I looked them up, as I had a road maintainer they manufactured, which was a very good product. Dave in Bellingham, WA
