1942 Ford Panel Delivery, Not sure about the shotgun.



Medicine Lake, Montana



1926 Ford first produced with the pickup bed stake pockets mounted too far forward to install a stake.




Later they moved the stake pocket back 7" so that a stake would clear the back of the roadster body and top.



I am not sure why the engine crank is still on the friction clutch pulley, humm?



This '26-'27 pickup appears to be made form a touring car. Judging by the square corner on the rear of the body. Oh well, it appears to be a vintage pic.

That might be original since it looks to be from across the pond. The foreign body production did some interesting things, particularly if they had to comply with a law requiring local production of some of the car.

Great pics, thanks! I will add more as I find them...

I used to have a front belt pulley attachment for a model T, sold it awhile back.

These photos were taken at Sisson's Garage, Wareham Mass. This was my grandfather's ford dealership. Not sure which of these Ts became trucks instead of cars, but we know from the cancelled check that they sold the closed cab TT. My grandfather, Benjamin Burliegh Sisson is on the far right in the first photo. My dad said the armed sentry was government placed during WW1. Unfortunately my Grandfather died in 1928 when my dad was only a year old. There were some neat artifacts at my grandma's place when we cleaned it out in 1967 when I was 14 and didn't have a trained eye. I have often wondered if he got to experience the wonders of the model A.

That tailgate would last about 30 seconds dangling like that around my 'farm'. I can see it now.... I just bumped my way up and over that 8" high stump I never got around to cutting off flush in the weedfield, as the banjo bounces over it I lose a crate of chickens and have to back up to pick them up and ... oh never mind, it's just too awful to write about. And cartoons are supposed to be funny, and we're talking about a brand spanking new tailgate here. OK, somebody put up more old photos please.

I like the pic of the check from 1926. It looks like it went through the bank two days later judging by the punch hole stamp. The stub stayed intact back in the days of the fountain pen.
B.B. had to pay a big price to the factory for the Closed Cab TT at that time. It must have been for a '27 model. It would be nice to see a pic of a '27 Double T.

I like the name of the of your granddad's company. I remember my dad would say such things as " I need to take this into the Ford Garage to get it fixed". He always called the dealerships the Garage.


I have always liked the New Ford Pickup AD, with '42 trim paint, ford hood script and hubcaps. Swings full-down for loading point made in ad but ya, put it back up when when you hit the road. I used to leave the tailgate down on the highway suspended by chains for gas mileage until Myth Busters proved that that wasn't an advantage.

And the 31,000,00th Ford in 1945. Couldn't afford to offer spare rubber yet and the ones on the new truck look like they have been stored out back in the dirt for a few years.

A real sliding gear transmission! Love the big rear tires on that open cab pickup. In fact I love everything about it.....
