On any given day Depot hacks ("hacks" a term used for taxicabs) could be seen working around train stations and hotels. Ford made many model T's, but only some were sold as a chassis with thedrive trainand coach builders built the wooden bodies.The depot hack version featured an open wooden body with multiple seats and room to carry the whole family. Compared to the many that were produced, precious few wooden-bodied motor cars survive today, making them highly desirable.
