The Mifflinburg Body Company here in PA had an extensive
choice of after market body styles for the Ford T and TT.

This is another one I'd like to do someday.
There is a good article about this company on Google.

They started as buggy builders,
before offering auto conversion designs.

Regards, Dave L.

The Field Manufacturing Co. in Michigan,
had a large selection of truck bodies for the Model T.

Their ad. shows a few possibilities.
Sorry the resolution is not so great.

Regards, Dave L.

If you didn't need a truck but wanted to
race your T you could add a racing body.

Again, sorry for the poor quality,
but you get the idea.

Regards, Dave L.

Once the rear casting is removed (one screw)

Ertl's Model T is ready for a new rear end.

Ertl used the same body and fender castings for their Model T.

But because their pickup version of the model was not a bank,
there is no hatch on the bottom.

Pickups seem to be harder to find.
There are very few for sale on eBay.

Here is the pickup model by Ertl.

I've painted it in a very "unauthentic" color.

I'm thinking of repainting it sometime.

Regards, Dave L.

Noting that there were only two of the Ertl Model T pickups on eBay,
I decided to change one of my roadsters back to a pickup.

I'll need to paint the bed black to match the car.

Regards, Dave L.

Many years ago there was a group of us who modeled vintage trucks,
and we exchanged letters on stationary I printed up.

It was simple,
each person added his personal news about projects on the letter,
included photos of models if available,
and sent the letter to the next person on the list.

It kept us all in touch.

I don't know if anyone reading this Thread models vintage trucks.
I'd like to hear from you via PM if you like old trucks and model them.

Regards, Dave L.

Liberty Classics 1916 Studebaker tank truck is a nice model.

The detail on the top of the tank is especially well done,
with rivets and hatches cleanly molded.

I still need to find or make a gear shift lever.

This little T is in my collection.

I've tried to determine its scale,
and photographed it next to a 1:24 model.

Anyone take a guess as to its scale ?

Regards, Dave L.
