Does anybody have a good picture of the spare tire mount for a roadster pickup?
I don't think there was any provision made for hauling the spare on 1925 truck,except hauling it in the bed. Larry Smith should know for sure.
Didn't Layden Butler have a repro posted lately in the classifieds ???
Rim came nailed to the bed of truck. You had to supply your own tire. Then you just put it in the bed or where ever you wanted. I am putting an aftermarket carrier on mine. The Ford tire carrier was made for the 26/27 pickup. Dan
Mine just lays in the bed. I have an aftermarket one made out of a standard T Tire carrier that mounts on the left running board.
One of my running board carriers would work.
Pictures of one of Jack's carriers doing its job:
I have the spare tire, but need the 25 roadster pickup to mount it on.
ON Barney I have a period accessory running board spare mount. This one, a factory-made (not Ford's Factory) uses a standard Ford rear frame spare mount, as used on the car models and mounts to the frame and running board mounts.
Thanks Mark. My computer virus I had awhile back wiped out all my pictures.I am slowly rebuilding that file.
The photos David posted is the same one I have.
Dave D, nice truck! Wish I had one of those tire mounts.
Barney is a survivor, and I'd be driving him around right now, but the wood is all dry rotted, so I will carefully take it apart so I can replicate it--otherwise I'd be damaging the good sheet metal by driving it around!
I made my own and it is exactly like David Dewey's. I used a T tire carrier from a 23-25 touring and added the extra steel. I believe I got the plans/picture from Larry Smith. It bolts to the running board and the 2 crossed pieces bolt to the frame going in the space between the aprons and the body.
