    I still plan on building mine sometime to haul my music equipment around with. I might even have the sides flip up so I can play right from the back.

    Post pix when you get 'er home...

    Just curious. Is the cab of this truck wooden? OR a factory steel C-cab with roadster cowl and windshield?
    The first give-away car at a NSRA event was a hotrod steel C-cab Model T Ford put together by the Minnesota SRA for the event. I know there was a buildup of it in Rod & Custom over the year between the nats. I believe the complete series was included in one of the Quarterlies.
    Found one in the bookcase, Fall 1971 R&C Street Rod Quarterly, Part 3, MSRA C-Cab Porject, pages 56-61.
    Parts 1 and 2 are not in the Summer Quarterly so should be the early parts of 71 when R&C was still monthly.
    The Winter Quarterly includes no new stuff on the T, so follow-ups must be in the early part of 1972 before the Nats in the summer.

    About four years ago there was one of these sitting in a backyard of a house in Breckenridge, TX. Tried to find out about it but never anybody home so I quit trying. It was about a '25 or earlier.
     
  8. I liked this one when I was about 13. Owner was Bill Ward who later was the first Kiwi to build a roadster for Bonneville, ship it over and race it.

    there used to be one in santa monica, it was all rusty but so cool. I used to walk by there when I was a teenager all the time to admire it. It was a 1917 ford c-cab. It was bad ass. The guy that used to own it was named Big Dan from the T-timers. He was an old guy. He said he used to run it at the Lions drag strip in the early 60's. I thought he wanted too much, and it needed a lot of work. and I eventually moved from santa monica, and I heard he passed away. His kids ended up selling all his stuff. He was telling me one time that he had like 100 old cars up in the malibu hills and he lost a bunch of them to the fires in the early 90's.

    Hi, I now own this C Cab.

    I bought it from Bill in 1974.
