If it could be put onto wheels, it could put onto a Model T. If something beefier was needed, then it could be put on the Model TT, the heavy-duty version of the Model T. While the drivetrain in both was identical, the Model TT had a heavier frame and rear axle the sum of which gave it a rating of 1 short ton. While by no means quick, it was a reliable work horse on which all manner of hefty commercial applications was applied.

This TT is outfitted as Tanker Truck and liveried in bright orange and black with green trim for the no-longer-extant Ontario, Canada based Supertest Petroleum company. Operating from 1923 until 1973, Supertest Petroleum marketed itself as "Canada's All-Canadian Company" before being acquired by British Petroleum Canada in 1971. Hung with 1925 Ontario plates, the tanker unit on this truck has three compartments, 1100 litres up front, 750 litres in the middle, and 400 in the rear. Complete with extra coachlights, and a full complement of petroliana gas cans, it is rare to find any surviving commercial vehicles from this era, let along one in condition as nice as this.
