Hello, Any info on these vehicles would be appreciated. I have just acquired this and am still gathering info'. The casting # on the block is: 348532 then underneath a bowtye and 2, then unde that is ; B 4 8. The last part I understand was the date, but can anyone tell me what the other numbers mean? The engine 3 is late in the 1928 year at; 4087674 as I understand it so far. Thanks for any help. Peter

Nice find, Welcome to the Forum. I'm a Ford guy so can't help, but it looks like the forward bed brackets attached a canopy to protect the load. I've never seen a Four Wheel Brake triangle on a car, I've had one in my automobila collection for close to 40 years, was that a Canadian item only, would be interesting to get the history on it.

The 4 wheel brake triangel was used in Canada to warn drivers as the 4 wheel brake cars stopped quicker. I think it was a Canadian law. Could be wrong though. Neat item, they pop up on ebay every so often.
