1913 Ford Model T "C Cab" Panel Delivery
Some of the most incredible Fords are those that were built in the Brass
Era (1905-1914). Ford did not produce trucks until 1925, but in 1913 a
buyer could purchase the complete chassis and then take it to a coach
company of their choice for the body. This C-Cab is, without a doubt, a
stunning example of craftsmanship and a testament to the beauty of Brass
This 1913 Ford Model T "C Cab" Panel Delivery or Light Delivery Car is nick-named the "C-Cab" because of its distinctively shaped roof and door opening over and around the cab. It was the lightest, most powerful and most economical delivery car sold back in the day. It cost considerably less to buy and operate than a team of horses with a wagon; it covered more territory and turned in a 28-foot circle. It carried 750 pounds of merchandise with convenience and speed.
This 1913 C-Cab is a completely restored original that had its rotting wood body replaced by Bob Petersen of Davenport, Iowa in the 1980's. For ease of starting, Bob installed a Model T engine manufactured in 1921 with an electric starter. The 1913 C-Cab joined the Lillie collection in July 2013. It participated in several parades and Home Shows before being sold to Carlos Alcazar of Laredo, TX in 2018.
