Took our Coupe for a ride today. We drive by this garage quite often, but today the door was open. This is what we spotted. The license is 1936. He has it running.

What a fun discovery ! Odd bed, I don't think I've ever seen sliding doors on anything of that era. I could use that dump bed !!

This kind of BS leads to people putting them back on the road, and that ain't
good in the eyes of the vinyl siding/"easy freeway access" crowd.

Stop him before he poisons the minds of youth !

He'll need tires. ;O)

Have him join us here! Looks like fun.

WOW that's an amazing find...Rich Eagles only finds pocket change, forks, and rebar! :-) but then again he gets to take his finds home.

The cab looks just like mine, sliding doors and all. See my profile picture. Does the owner know who made the cab? Martin Parry (Perry?) made a lot of them, but I've never seen mine in any of the catalogs. I'd really like to know who the manufacturer was.

Oh wait! Is that steel? Mine is wood. I had looked at the photos on my phone earlier and posted on a computer where the pictures show up better.:-(

Dan I see he let you take several pictures, did you offer to help him get his hands dirty? It looks like you may have a new friend and that is the best thing about the "T" hobby :-)

Mother Nature has beautifully transformed that into a wonderful thing. Hi Dennis. Yogi Berra said "If you come to a fork in the road, take it". He didn't give us any advice on TT Trucks.
Being able to see these photos is a treat.
Thanks
Rich

That windshield mount looks like the protective plate of a blast furnace.

That brass is gonna need a lot of polishing. It is very rusty !

Burger, I don't believe Ford made TTs with brass radiators.

Happy motoring,

Warren

Warren,

Unless metallurgy has changed, brass doesn't rust either !

Place humor hat firmly on head, engage threads, and twist to tighten ! :-)

The radiator would be Brass and Copper. The Shell is Steel. I have leaned from forum posts that these details should be corrected.
Rich

Change it all to brass and sentence yourself to a life of hard labor polishing it ???
