Locally there is a truck like this that has a car body added to the TT frame. The owner tells of his dad getting the roadster body from a junk yard and adding it to the truck frame.

It was frightening when I first glanced at that photo. I though what the heck is the enormous load on the back of that truck. Then I figured it out.

So Rick, is it a well drilling machine?

I assume the truck is parked in front of an oil drilling rig. Nothing is actually on the bed of the truck. You can see chains stretched out across the flat bed.

Or it might be yet another time-travel picture. That guy has one hand on the steering wheel and he is looking down at a cell phone in his other hand. Maybe he said, "Beam us up." They look like they are starting to fade out.

During the 1918-1927 production run of TT s, 95% were sold as chassis only. Even after CCab and Enclosed Cab bodies came out in '24 and '25 respectively. After a time period it became popular to add roadster and cut off touring bodies to working TTs.

The wood cab on my '18 TT is just about shot. I've considered replacing it with a roadster body. I think it would make a great looking truck.

On the other hand, my wood cab has looked about the same for 60 years. At the current rate of deterioration I think it's probably good for another 125-150 years. :-)
