So, I think I posted this before, but I picked this Anthony Model L Autorocker Dump bed up off of Ebay back in January. I finally made the trip with my little brother and nephew out to Lafayette, IN, to pick it up this past week. It was a 990 mile round trip but well worth it. I was only expecting to get the dump box and the bare frame, however when I arrived the gentleman had parts of what I believe are the original wooden cab portions and it looks like a newer steel cowl section. What are your thoughts on either rebuilding using the patterns or merging this with my steel cab? Here are some pictures and some original adds for the bed. - Matt

If I had the space and means, I would really enjoy putting a TT dump
truck to work. I move a fair amount rock and dirt with my work, but not
so much as to warrant a large and modern dump truck. As it is, I think
I will keep to it just my flatbed for now. Got my hands full already with
that one ! .... but the dump truck idea always gets me kicking it around
again.

My opinion:

That would be a really cute and super cool truck if restored as shown in the first ad - no cab.

It sure looks like you got most of the original open cab; I don't think the metal cowl is very late, as it looks like it's set up for the brass era hood.
That would be extremely cool to restore "as it was." Rather than make "what I Like" out of it.
However, a "roof over one's head" is sure nice in the summer sun. . . .

I don't think the steel cowl is original. It looks like a newer piece. The gentleman I bought it off of said it was a 1921. I think the frame is much newer. What about using the cowl sheet metal from the extra Closed cab and keep the wood cab risers and seat. The seat is notched for the release lever.
