Model T Ford Pickup Truck
The truck was selected for the award because of the simplicity of design. It carries two people in comfort and can be moved in the back of a regular size pickup. What makes it unique is that it authentically represents the original model and yet I used only miscellaneous materials I had on hand. Only the shuttle oil lamps and the mechanical "oo-gah" horn are original equipment.
The tubular steel frame incorporates a special welded cornerjoint that added strength to the overall design. The front axle and spindle joints were shaped to the correct dimensions and then welded for proper steering characteristics. (Bill Short, Rt. 2, Box 230, Hamilton, Mo. 64644)
