W.C. Fields getting ready for a road trip.
What was the purpose of the crossbar on the front? I see them often...
It's a high performance device. It allowed greater speeds on the roads of the day without the fenders falling off.
"By the end of this trip... The resale value of this vehicle will be virtually nill..."
One of my all time favorite movie quotes. "The Bank Dick". Good ol W.C. Fields! I think of him every time I climb behind the wheel of a Ford. Everybody in Hollywood is just too darn pretty these days... No personality anymore!!
Interesting body style. It looks like a depot hack, but it has tapering sides to add some style to it rather than the simple box. The cowl is not standard Ford issue either. It has already had a replacement front fender fitted at some time.
Allan from down under.
Simply put Brooks, a fender brace
I always liked those braces, but when it came time to actually put one on, I couldn't do it.
That garage reminds me of the garage that was in a Harold Lloyd film, where he backed right through the back of it.
I find the braces so alter the looks of the T, I do not like them.
I have a nice hole in my shop where I tried to run the truck through
the back wall ! A case of engine revs a little too high, that tiny reverse
pedal, and size 13 feet !
Barney's fenders have marks from one, so I went looking for one, and will put it on, I think they are an interesting accessory that actually did something!
