My first peddlers box I made ended up being too short in my opinion. I just rebuilt it 9Ē taller and added a new drawer underneath the back swing out doors. Just shot it this morning with black primer. Now Iím not sure what the final color will be. Keep it black, go midnight blue, or 39 Packard deep maroon.

Deep Maroon.

Just my first thought.

They both look really nice!

Very nice ... what will you be peddling? Email me if you want my research in selling patent medicine from the back of a model T. Mosterman@eastman.com

Wish I lived closer, I would love to have the shorter one. :-(

If you want to outfit your peddlers box with products with labeling that appear to be from the era, and don't want to spend years and cubic money acquiring them, Google "Watkins Products".

The company was very popular in the 20's and is still in business today. Best of all, most of their packaging and labeling has not changed, and would look very authentic in your peddlers box. Mainly because Watkins distributors in the 20's used the same type of rig you have.

Check out their website. At the least, I think you'll get a kick out of it.

Been too hot and humid to do a good job painting the new box.
Decided to just paint it a satin black for now. Finish came out uneven. Installed it today anyway Iíll repaint it this winter. Iíll reinstall the hardware and roll her out side for some better pics tomorrow.

Thinking of something like this on the side panels

Still haven't done the final painting and need to install some skeleton key locks on the doors and drawer.

Neil, very nice work. Love the detail like dove tail on draws and inset panels.

Neil,

Great looking peddlers box.

Depending on why you want the Ford logo on the side of the box you have many options.

I do not recall ever seeing an early Ford Sign that looks like the ones being offered on aluminum today. (See offering at Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/HangTime-Company-Service-Genuine-Circle/dp/B06XMYLPF6/ref =asc_df_B06XMYLPF6/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=266781768695&hvpos=1o2&hvn etw=g&hvrand=2931545413560851134&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvloci nt=&hvlocphy=9010387&hvtargid=pla-448411204257&psc=1 The style of the lettering appears to be a copy of what was used on the decals applied to the early 1903-ish Model As. But the price if very reasonable.

I have not seen that style of lettering used with a Sales and Service etc. sign. If someone else has -- please let us know.

You might want to consider going with the "Winged Pyramid" sign introduced by Ford USA during 1912 and used during most of the Model T production. It is also available in reproduction see: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/118802/162418.html?1287112631

Again great looking T !

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off
