Thanks Jay! Car chassis to truck conversion. But not one of the more common chain drive ones. Does anyone recognize which truck conversion company? From Stan Howe's posting at: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/331880/385324.html?1378701176 I think it might be a Jewett. But the rear spring hanger support is more substantial in Stan's photo that is shown below (Thank you Stan) than the one on the truck above.



I would think a 1917 model year chassis was converted.

It has the above the axle wishbone so mid-1919 or earlier (assuming the spring perches & wishbone were original to the chassis).

It also has the horn button on top of the steering column so later 1915-1917ish.

Black radiator so 1917 or later.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

1913 converted to a truck! Note chain drive. Truck was found in a small barn in Fleming Co. Also in the barn was a real nice 26 or 27 sedan, the only black sedan that I ever saw in these parts. All the original closed 26/27 that I found was green.

Thanks for a great picture again, Jay. Opens a wound, though. An old farmer told me he still technically owned all the junk on a farm he sold on contract. There was a kit like this in the bank barn. I could have it if it was there. And any other old stuff I wanted.
Till I could get there, all the old stuff was scrapped. Except for a rolled Chevy Luv truck that his grandson wiped out fleeing the law. That, they thought,was valuable. I wept, not for the loss of the truck kit, but for the future of our nation.

And, that one was a chain drive, according to the old boy. I can't recall ever seeing a shaft drive one in'person'.

Am I seeing correct? A speedometer on a TT? :-)
Huge ($h!t m@gn&t) tool box on the rear of the 'board. Nice!
Rear fender beat up like that? Yet the fronts...
Cool pic Jay!

That second picture looks very similar to my long wheel base TT chassis. Not chain drive, just lengthened. Mine lengthens the TT wheel base 18" and the fame is 56" longer overall. Does anybody the manufacturer?
