Now that is a nice design. Very swish.

Looks to be a '23 T. Does that mean it has a 350 under the hood?

I wonder if that body came with anything to keep the driver from getting hit in the head with cold air on a winter day?

Ha, ha, Larry, the driver would have to provide his own balaclava !!

It may be a slip-on body that goes on a roadster. If the contrast were better, it would be easier to discern.

Rich B ! You found a word I had to look up! Thank you. I am always trying to learn new (to me) words.
Somehow I didn't think he had to wear a sweet pastry (Kind of like a cake).

Wayne..LOL...yeh, at first I thought my ol' Pal Rich was into the hooch too hard! Or he couldn't spell BAKLAVA!! Not big on those kind of hats, but I sure do LOVE baklava. :-)

So what you're saying is that a Ninja warrior drove these trucks?

In 26-7 Ford Canada offered a very similar body. There is a “survivor” locally

Ninja warrior (;-) hehehehe.

You have to be as tough as a ninja warrior to drive these trucks in a January freeze! -10, wind blowing snow at 20 mph, truck driving into the storm....you had better have one of these on....with goggles.

All of this applies to some of us. IF you live in Minnesota, it would be just another spring day with a little snow.

Cheers,
Terry

Erik, thanks for that link to the slip-on body definitely a strong resemblance. Aside from what we can't see in this photo, the cowl doesn't quite look to me like the Ford body cowl - what do you think ?

Funny about learning - around here, at least in the iggorant circles I run in, a "Balaclava" is a woolen winter hat with ear flaps - not unlike what Elmer Fudd wears hunting. I've never seen one of them Ninja masks around here, but it looks like it would be a good idea for driving that T at 20 below !

Now I'm confused ! Think I'll just mosey down to the Greek restaurant and have a piece of baklava and think this over.

Balaclava ? Isn't that where the Charge of the Light Brigade took place during the Crimean War . . . ?

Well, Rich, that gave me some more to read for awhile. So much history. So much art, literature, legend, and more. All to wonder, and to learn from. So much of it, interconnected, much in ways that affect us more than we know.
Often, I need to wander through the internet, looking at bits and pieces, here and there. Reminding myself of things I had forgotten. Learning more things I had never known. I used to read my books, and encyclopedias. But the internet is so much faster (for all my complaints about how the gamers try to run, and ruin, it, I do believe the internet is a wonderful resource of so much information).
Yes. The Balaclava (sometimes spelled with a "k", BalaKlava) region of Crimea is where the famous "Charge of the Light Brigade" took place. It of course goes by many other names using alphabets from Russian and Turkish cultures. It is also the war wherein Florence Nightingale first became famous.
So much more to read about.
