I have a wood body C cab pickup. There are no doors and no splash aprons. I am guessing it is 23 or 24 but I cannot find any numbers stamped on the pad above the water outlet. Is this type of body after market and does '23 or '24 sound about right?

Dave,

Ford Motor Company USA never produced a wooden C cab pickup. If you have one it would most likely be an aftermarket body or one made by the owner or local blacksmith etc.

It could be placed on any year chassis. But the bodies are designed to fit 1909-1925 car chassis without modifications to the body or the 1926-27 car chassis or the Ton Truck Chassis. If you take one of those bodies and mount it on the other type chassis, you need to make some changes to the body mounts to get it to fit. Also, you need the matching radiator, hood, and hood former (part the hood will rest on next to the cab). It can be made out of wood or metal etc.

If you post some photo folks will be able to tell you a lot more about the car. Also confirm if it is on a car or Ton Truck chassis.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

Neat! Home made on a car chassis. Could be anywhere from 1920 to 1925. A front photo, engine left and right and how tall the side panels are on the hood would help narrow down the year.

Going by what I see, 1924-1925.

Looks like an auxiliary transmission too.

Neat truck.But the body is not Ford,it is home built or aftermarket company.
Could you post a photo or 2 of the bottom of the windshield where it is fitted to the wooden cab front? I am working on building 1 and would like to see that up close.Also would like to see the mounts for the kerosene side lamps. thanks.

You can buy the flat windshield mounts for that style windshield from most of the suppliers. You would have to use the truck/huckster style lamp mounts too. Which is what looks to be used to mount the lamps.

There is no aux trans but there is a Ruckstell rear axle on the truck. When I got the truck the windshield was in the truck bed. The lamps are held on by a through bolt into the back of the lamp.

If I remember you could buy a new chassis and build on or add to it for your own individual needs. This one looks to be have been built up after the Model T era. Could have been a closed or open car to begin with. Whoever did it did a really neat job

I think this one was built up in the 50's. My opinion of course.
