Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Martin-Perry wood cab info needed
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Dallas landers on Saturday, November 05, 2016 - 11:10 pm:

A 26 TT followed me home tonight. Drivetrain 99% complete minus carb. Warford over and under drive trans. Exhaust cutout. Cab is obout 80% complete but in pieces. Is there info , diagrams , or detailed pics of these cabs and how they are put together and main runners that mount to frame? The front panel with windshield is in tact and one door. To late tonight for pics but I will post them. Also there is no ignition switch or lid for coil box. Any help would be great.
Thank you
Drive safe and often

Dallas,

I removed the correct 26 Kingston carb from my 26 TT. If interested, drop me a PM.

My TT must have been in a race at one time. On one of the seat supports boards is hand painted poor looser. If anyone has one of these cabs I would love some pics!

Dallas, probably not enough remains to identify which MP body style it was if those are your only parts.

I have the other side of cab and top and parts of top. Missing other door. Door was hinged but I don't know to what. No screw holes in front panel or rear side panel. I think it had metal panel in rear of cab like the sides and doors. I will try to clamp some more pieces together for a better look.

Dallas, check out www.martin-parry.com All the help you will ever need. M-P was the largest aftermarket body builder at the time, and about 1930 were bought out by General Motors and renamed Chevrolet Body Division. Martin-parry bodies were sold alacarte, thousands of combinations possible. I have your cab too, and can help with photos and catalog pictures. Tmorsher@icloud.com to reach me direct.

Thanks Tim
I'll check it out. Was looking this morning on interweb and wasn't having much luck. Pics would be great
