My Grandfather came to Montgomery, AL in 1912 from Kentucky and started his milk business. Don't have any other pictures. There is one like it at the Jack Daniels distillery In TN. I am a Model A man, so don't know the year of the "T". Joe Young Slapout, AL

It shines like a new dime, look at the reflection of the rear fender on the side.

Did Glenview Dairy eventually become Hall Brothers Dairy located between Snowdon and Montgomery ( It would actually be in the city of Montgomery today).

I like the pride it looks like they put into their job. The truck is clean and they are both well dressed (ties, tucked in shirts etc).

That is the closest body to one I have been working on for a customer.It is the first I have seen with the metal panels on the sides like the one here.That one you have pictured looks as if somebody needed more room for the cab opening,it is hard to picture a body maker installing those oval windows with that cutout in them.The one I am working on is pictured in my thread looking to ID it.Somebody else posted the pictures,I never had any.If I knew how to get the two pictures side by side I could get a better comparison.

Newbie here. I have a 1925 C-cab panel similiar to this but not with the small insert "C". That is really different. It also has straight sides without the inset. Wish it was as prestine at the one in the photo.
