Default Re: 41 Railroad express

Ford started building the "TONNER" in 1938 continuing until 1941 and
it had a model designation as "Y" with85 or 60 hp. In 1940 and 41 they
offered the "Y" along with the "3/4 TONNER" designated "D"with
the same engine options plus the 4 cyl.
The TONNER had a 6.875 bolt circle with 17" rims while the 3/4 Tonner
had the 10.25(wide five) bolt circle and 16" rims.

The Railway Express Agency had many of the Tonners that were built as
cowl and chassis then finished mainly by Highland Body Mfg. in Cinn,Ohio.
