Model T's: how many versions were offered as a military vehicle? I have seen the ambulance, along with the light cargo truck and the machine gun car. Others?

I seen this?

Attached is a list from December 1918 of what the Quartermaster Corp wanted from Ford for vehicles. Remember, it was after the Great War that the Ford was used as a military vehicle. Not all Fords saw action in France.

With so many broken Ts lying around it was inevitable that someone with a bit of time on their hands would become a little creative:

Hello Billy, i don't think Ford produced any specialised military cars other than the ambulance, all cars built by Ford USA were standard products except the ones delivered with the standardised ambulance body of the 1917 pattern.
All the pictures posted by Adrian are of the English commonwealth pattern with british built bodywork and right hand steering wheel.
But of course a lot was built or adapted in the field as need arose, that is still a large 'grey area'

There was an individual on the Forum, Robert Brough, who built a version of the T patrol car. He also collected and restored military vehicles. I expected him to jump in this thread, but he hasnít. Now that I think of it, been about 6 months since Iíve seen him post anything on here.

Most of the pictures are Commonwealth, but not all. Many Commonwelth Ts came from "the factory" - just not the US factory ;-)

Several are US forces: "might have beens" and troop transport are US I believe.
