The model T was Ford’s most successful model, producing over 15 million cars between 1908 and 1927. The TT is the truck version of the car.
This Paddy Wagon is an exact replica of the first motorised Paddy Wagon in N.Z.. The only difference is that the first ones were built on a 1918 Ford T chassis, and this one is on a 1925 Ford T chassis. The N.Z. Police had one built for the Police Museum and at that time a second body was fabricated off the original plans. Barry Thompson of Christchurch built this one and we purchased it in 2005.
