Thats why we're here, to learn from others. I told you wrong though...I was eating supper tonight and thought, "I lied, Ford did build a T Runabout with a factory pickup box in '25." Looked it up and found this on Wiki; The first factory-assembled pickup debuted in 1925 and sold for $281. Henry Ford billed it as the "Ford Model T Runabout with Pickup Body." The 34,000 built that first year featured a cargo box, adjustable tailgate, four stake pockets and heavy-duty rear springs" Before that, there was a bed available from Ford and many other vendors to convert the Runabout and even the touring into a pickup. Here is a '25 Runabout with Pickup Body, and since we have been talking about hot rod Model T's here is also a vintage Ames-bodied speedster. The Ames company was located in Owensboro, KY and built some of the most sought-after "replacement" bodies for T's amongst speedster guys today.
