What did Henry Ford buy when he needed something bigger than a TT ? One of these, of course. Emblems removed. Photo from Mike W.

I agree with Don.

The clue for me is the radius in the front cross member above the crank- like a Mack AC.

Actually F T, it sort of does resemble one of those GMC Big Brutes from the '20's, but I doubt that ol' Henry would have been caught dead with anything GM around his place ! The majority is right, with Don leading the way, This truck is a 1923 Gotfredson Series 100 5 ton model. Gotfredson had only been building trucks for 3 years when Henry Ford bought this one, perhaps becuse they were built in Detroit just like his Fords. This 5 tonner was Gotfredson's largest model. Thanks to Mike W for the photo.

great picture and hint of what must have been some interesting thoughts going through Henry's head when he chose Gotfriedson. 

Henry also had a personal camping truck, which I won't mention rgiht now.....
