Well if this works you should be able to see the picture. The truck runs and drives. I do not plan on restoring it. I plan on getting it where it starts and drives good and enjoying it as is.
As you can see I blocked the truck up so it was not riding on the spoke wheels from Florida to Indiana. Everything went great and I am ready to have fun with it.

Gorgeous aftermarket cab and bed. You are to be greatly commended for planning on preserving this incredible specimen of TTs. Thanks for sharing pic and caption. If you’re new to that Warford tranny; be careful and learn about it before shifting on the move..

Thanks for the compliment and the advise. The tranny in it is a three speed. It also came with a two speed.
I do have a hood for it but unfortunately it is not the correct hood and does not fit well. However it will do for now and I hope to even find one that fits.

Bring those spokes back to life: sandpaper them real good then brush on as much 50/50 mix of boiled linseed oil and denatured alcohol that they’ll soak up...

I like that alot. Keep us posted.

My guess is that the two-speed is actually a Ruckstell rear axle. That plus the three-speed auxiliary transmission make this a very well-equipped truck indeed. What is the round thing in front of the firewall? I don't recognize it.

Steve,
Might that be a really large horn??

Yes it is a large oogha horn.

Those old wood bodies have great styling. Mother nature has made it even better.
Thanks for letting us look at it.

Beautiful truck!
I think that's a real neat idea for shipping. :-) Why transmit every bump on the road thru the spokes on the trip. Very cool.

Fabulous!

I rub wood preservative on my truck. A bit of Kerosene works well :-)

Great to see such a survivor.

Great TT. And love that body, has great remaining lettering of Railway Express on the side boards.

On the door you can see witness mark of the angular REA metal sign that used to be there too.

Fine specimen

Duane, really great TT! Are there any indicators inside the cab of who made it?

I have look everywhere I know to look but have not found anything.

I have a hood for the truck however it is not the correct hood and does not fit well. That is something I can take care of in time. Either modify the current hood or try to find the correct hood.
