I had the privilege of seeing Tim Kellys Tow Car Delivery at a New England meet several years ago. What I saw was a sliding door between the driver and the rear compartment. Also his had only one seat in the drivers compartment. Are these two different models of a TCD?

To the best of my knowledge, all TCDs have a partition between the driver and the rear compartment with a sliding door, as well as a single seat for the driver.

Technically yes; the '30 straight windshield and the '31 slant windshield but the interiors were the same.

Like Jeff said; a sliding door separating cockpit and cargo area as well as a single driver's seat.

The red car posted earlier in this thread is a tribute vehicle with many inaccurate details; including the dual front seats and the stationary partition. It is the unfortunate side effect of creating an interpretation of an actual production vehicle; people see it and think that is how an original is.
