I recently acquired this. I believe that it is from the early 1920s. I would love to hear if anyone knows more about these.

Thanks Richard and Mark I just bought the ad!

I believe that this is a 4D bed with the PTO lift. Itís likely that this bed was not originally on the model T. But I wonder what kind of PTO unit could connect with this on a TT truck.

I found these discussions on TT PTOs:

So maybe I will come across a TT PTO!

I found this from goggle books (The American City, November 1922)

https://books.google.com/books?id=xqpJAQAAMAAJ&lpg=RA1-PA104&ots=Ugj9FDHjKH&dq=%22lee%20trailer%20and%20body%20co.%22&pg=RA1-PA104#v=onepage&q&f=false

More info here (Motor Truck, June 1921):

I figure I should just post my research to share with others. Please feel free to share your thoughts and insight!

Just received this today. Thanks to Mark and Richard for finding this on eBay! I decided I will post this, so that anyone that has Lee Trailer and Body Company Automanic, Semi Automatic (Hand Hoist), Power Dumping Bodies for Trailers and Semi-Trailers can enjoy.




It looks like I have the Lee Motor Lift that uses the PTO. As shown here:


Here is the Lee-4D all purpose body on a Ford 1-ton Truck:


Enjoy,
Matt
