This is a photo of members of my family in Jackson's Hole Wyoming in 1923. The Model T belonged to my Grandfather. He fabricated the bench seat/toolbox and the flat bed. Apparently
the 1922 Model T was available firewall forward sans body. Any opinion weather this is a T or a TT? (sorry that the photo is blurry. it did not resize well).

The reason I thought it may be a TT is the size of the tire/wheel size.

The appearance of he rear axle/spring assembly, the short running board and the long wheel base say TT to me.

I appreciate your response. I am planning to build a replica of the TT in the photo for the family of today. Would you mind if I come up and take a look at your 1918 TT? I am assuming it would be quite similar to my Grandfather's 1922 model.

I found this drawing in an earlier post. It looks like the bench seat covers the fuel tank rather than a "toolbox".

It wasn't until 1924 Ford offered any body or bed for the TT - they were all sold as chassis up until then with just a hood, firewall and tank so the buyer could choose to buy a body from an outside supplier or build something for their own needs. Obviously your family choose the latter. Back in those days everyone was familiar with open horse drawn wagons, so it was natural to just make a seat. The TT wasn't very fast, so the lack of a windshield didn't bother much :-)

The rear end and short running board defiantly looks like TT. I also see an ignition switch panel bolted to the top of the firewall.
