Does anyone have any data on when Ford introduced the new style metal tool box, and back rest cushion supports? I'm thinking April, but really don't know for sure. I once owned a March 1925, and it didn't have any of that.

Larry,
My late April roadster pickup has the metal toolbox and the improved single choke, carb adjustment.

Thanks Jim. Next time I go to the archives, I should check on this.

John: Good to see you at Bakersfield again, and Dan too. Here are some pictures of the back rest cushion wood, and special brackets that are used to partially hold the metal tool box used in the late '25 roadsters. As far as I know Howells sells the metal tool box insert.

I have a late '25 Roadster (July '25), but sadly when it was "restored" some time in the '70's the tool tray and any trace of the brackets were lost. I am not sure it would be worth the trouble to try to fit them at this point. Maybe if I ever do a total restoration.
