Ford didn't offer a factory-built pick up until 1925 but the market was nonetheless served by many manufacturers of kits to convert Henry's ubiquitous, rugged T into commercial vehicles, including the Graham brothers who got their start in the automobile business building Model T conversions. This charming little '24 Model T Roadster has been converted into a tow truck by the addition of a pickup bed and a rare 2-ton capacity Weaver Auto Crane with hand cranked winch and a shortened boom to fit the T's dimensions. It has a number of attractive features including an accessory water pump, Ford script winged radiator cap with MotoMeter and electric starter and its condition is exceptional, showing a great deal of care and effort on the part of its restorer. The combination of the roadster body and the period wrecker winch and boom is particularly attractive and enjoyable, no doubt one of the reasons it was invited to participate in the 2008 Glenmoor Gathering and why it won a first prize in 2001 at the American Towman Exposition in Baltimore where it must have been made quite a statement among the Fords, GMCs and chrome bedecked Kenworths. It has been freshly gone through mechanically and cosmetically and is ready to rescue any classic cars unfortunate enough to break down on this summer's tours or shows ... or to win the ribbons itself.
