I wrote the seller of this item on Ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1924-Ford-Model-T/162683270720?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&autorefresh=true questioning his description about having a Ruckstell and Ford made wooden cab. He checked and said he made a mistake, it did not have a Ruckstell. But he claims the cab was made by Ford in this reply:
"You are reading that correct that Ford made the cab, this was one of the only years ford produced cabs for the vehicle along with a chassis (in fact the first year). That being said, because this vehicle was marketed for multiple different uses, no 1 cab coming off of fords line was the same, due to the craftsman who build it, the wood available for the cab at the time (ours is oak, but maple, fir, and pine have also been reported for use) and a few other variables. Unlike a metal vehicle, wooden cabs had no standard “dyes” to cast the shape of, and so each cab was made to fit the chassis, and job it was being built for. If you are curious to see other examples, you can do a image search on google for “Factory made Wood Cab Model TT” or “Ford made wood cab Model TT” and see the variations of fords cabs, and then do a search for dealer made wood cab Model TT and you will see the some examples of the chassis how it arrived to dealers as well as some of the dealer made cabs. You will notice the dealer made cabs are usually far lower quality of craftsmanship, mix woods, incorporate metal parts if that’s what was available, and generally look more pieced together ad not near so clean and the ford made cabs. "
This guy is a classic car dealer, he sells a lot of classic cars, and he claims Ford made a wooden cab for the TT starting in '24. I thought Ford started making cabs for the TT in '24, the C cab and the enclosed cab, but both were metal.
Did Ford make a wooden cab for the TT?
