The Ford Model T began life in 1908 and a few years later, in 1911, Ford offered a factory-built truck on the T chassis for the first time. A Commercial Roadster and enclosed delivery cars were available, but not with a permanent roof to offer protection for the driver. In October of 1911, Ford introduced the C-Cab Delivery. It was given this name due to the design of the roof.
This Model T C-Cab was discovered in the early 1990s in Ontario, Canada. A comprehensive restoration soon began and was finished in 1997. The work included a complete mechanical overall and it was given a Model T-type electric starter and a brass acetylene generator to power the lights. The bodywork was stripped, rebuilt and repainted in Midnight Blue with French Gray pinstripes and black fenders.
In 2009, this T C-Cab Delivery Truck was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction held in Scottsdale, Arizona where it was estimated to sell for $50,000 - $60,000 and offered without reserve. The lot was sold for the sum of $30,250 including buyer's premium.Also photographed at :
