Found this at an auction last week.
Measures 5' long by 3'7" wide.
Looks to me to be factory made, wondering if anyone had any thoughts.
That bed appears with the width to fit between the rear fenders of a Ford. Bed is nicely ironed for a typical of home made. Like the irons on the top edges!
The narrow floorboards are typical home made, as factory would use wide boards, less labor.
Odd place for battery access, as that opening is over the muffler on a Model T.
What is the name of the publication that features the above article. I love those old "DIY" articles.
Are the pictures posted available online or in PDF form? for better reading.
That's a nice find. Do you have a T in mind to put it on?
Nice bed! I know a perfect place for it
In that era there were a lot of carriage makers who could do work like this.
