Question Chassis ID

Greetings,

I have a model "T" chassis with 103" wheelbase and the front and rear leaf springs are in line with the frame rails. All of the "T" images I can see only show transverse leafs front and rear. What am I looking at?

Without photos no way to help. The T had a 100" wheel base.

Actually the frame was 100 inches. The wheelbase was more like 99, 98 without a load on the chassis.
