Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Recognize this brass pickup?

Does anyone recognize this T pickup? I took this photo on the 1988 Grand Canyon tour when I was 15 years old. It was one of the reasons I went home and started building my own T pickup. The one in photo is/was more maroon than it shows.

To whoever owned it then, I want day thank you. And to everyone else reading this.... You just never know when you or your car may have a lasting impression on someone.

Nice story - it was my neighbor that had a cool Model A pickup that got me hooked - tho it took years before I could really get into it!

Chris

good of you to post this. I'm going to bet that you will be an inspiration to someone now or in the future, yourself. Great attitude.

Looks like a Syverson Open Express body to me.

RDR's pick up looks similar.

Chris: I pulled out my 88 tour book and there was no early brass PU listed. Of course, someone could have changed vehicles for the tour and it would not be in the book. The only PU's listed were later models. The closest to your inquiry was a 15 "runabout" from Don Chidgey whose address was the same as Jacks, who was also on the tour. Sorry I could not be more help. You might contact Russ and jog his memory. Regards, Tim

I think it belonged to Lear Simpson, he had a brass pickup and I believe he was at the Grand Canyon Tour. He passed a few years ago and Iím not sure if the family sold the car. He also had a beautiful powder blue 1912 Touring which I lusted after for many years. On a tour in Show Low he forgot to lower the top as he drove it into his closed trailer and busted the top bows. You could hear him screaming all over the casino :-)
