TT  to be more precise. The worm gear rear end and heavier frame give it away. Started out in '17 as a chassis and you would have your own body made for it.  In '24 Ford started making their own bodies.

In case you wondered what they are doing, they are filling up the ice house. Those are blocks of ice in the back of the truck. They have a chute lined with tin. They are holding a rope with ice tongs on it. They will start the blocks on the chute, clamp the tongs on the end block and pull  the rope, pulling the blocks up into the ice house. Then they will be stacked up with sawdust in between and the pile of ice covered with more sawdust. Next summer they will have ice to sell. Or if it is a dairy farm the ice will be used to keep the milk fresh and cool.

What a great photo.

The things we take for granted nowadays... 

 

Imagine the movement and tasks involved in securing a truck load.

From the frigid round trip ride in one of these old trucks to the sawing by hand.

And if that wasn't enough, the unloading that we see here in this photo and repeat the process all over again...

Amazing

Then imagine making at least 25  trips to the lake to cut and load more ice.
